Skateboarding Game Session Coming to Xbox Game Preview in October

By Sean Carey, 6 days ago
Indie developer Crea-ture Studios has officially announced that their skateboarding game Session, is coming to Xbox Game Preview this October.


With the absence of a new Skate title, fans have been after a new skateboarding game for a while. Session was announced back at E3 2017 and caused quite a stir, but not much was known at the time.

Now, we have a bit more information. Instead of using button combos much like the previous generations of skateboarding games, Session will introduce a new control system call the True Stance Stick controls, which maps each analogue stick your avatar's feet.

In an interview with Game Informer, co-founder of Creat-ure Studios Marc-André Houde said the games announcement trailer in 2017 was "barely a prototype" that featured mainly conceptual designs. The Crea-ture team has been hard at work since then, refining and tweaking the smaller details to the game's physics. Board flipping speeds, grind connections and improvements to the character's movement have all been vastly improved.

The game is also being released in Early Access on Steam, but the extreme sport's title will have all the same features on the Xbox One as part of Xbox Game Preview as Steam's Early Access version. Although, the Xbox One version will include Mixer live streaming integration.

There is no definitive date for the Game Preview release, nor for the game's final form; Session is set to drop-in around early 2020. We will keep you up to date if we hear anything else.

It's been a while since we had a decent skateboarding game — What are your thoughts on Session? Let us know in the comments.
