Skate 3 Servers Come Back Online

By Rebecca Smith,
Last week, we had the news of EA's first server closure in quite a while. This week, we bring much more positive news. The servers for Skate 3 have come back online without any fanfare. This means that all of the game's achievements are now obtainable again.

Skate April 14th

We don't know why the servers have come back online after an absence of two years, or for how long they'll be back, but I wouldn't wait too long to grab the following achievements:

Is this a sign of things to come? Will there finally be a long-awaited Skate 4 announcement at E3? It might be an idea to tune into EA Play at 11AM PT / 2PM ET / 7PM BST / 4AM AEST (June 10th) to find out.

We've got the full list of Skate 3 achievements - check the list for guides to unlocking them.

    If only they would fix Skate 2 ... had one achievement left and went to check on the game a while back to find out the online rank tracking no longer works cry Partially my fault for putting it off for so long but still lame on EA's part.

    Does this mean it will disappear again without a fanfare?

    Agreed! I didn’t even know the servers for 2 were down as well? I completed them both around 4 years ago but didn’t get around 2 doing 1 because the servers were already off. I had completed 1 on a previous account though.

    2 years? That's a huge gap to be coming back, there must be some sort of announcement coming for them to do this.

    ea reinstates servers for old games only when a big time streamer decides to play the game. they are truly the most opportunistic cocksucking motherless fucks of all publishers.

    For a complete newcomer to the skate franchise, how long would it take roughly to knock out all of the online achievements?

    Well the overall online is still up in 2 as far as I know, but it no longer tracks your medals/rankings which makes all the rank based achievements unobtainable.
