The Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 Healing Begins

The Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 Healing Begins

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 wiped out when it was released back in September. This game was a mess. Promises were made that Robomodo and Activision would fix things, and we’re finally seeing a patch that makes good on those promises. The 7.8GB Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 update adds new, free content and fixes many issues.

The new content is perhaps the most exciting part of the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 update. There are two new character campaigns, one for Tyler the Creator, the rapper, and the other for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. There are also new levels, with Underground and Wild West mentioned in the patch notes. At the very least, it would be wise to log in and try the Daily Grind, Manual Mayhem, and Skate Hoarding multiplayer modes that have been added to the game.
