The most recent Skate game is somewhat closer and much further away than imagined. There is still a long way to go before Skate can be considered a final product. As a result, it will be accessible earlier than anticipated.
Skate Insider Program, a limited alpha test, is being launched by Electronic Arts. Players will be allowed to test an early form of the title and submit their comments to the developers.
If Electronic Arts’ recent employment posting for a User Experience Researcher is anything to go by, these test participants might have a significant impact on the game’s design and development. Participation, however, is not assured.
These things are required before registering for the alpha. A PC capable of running Skate is the first need. Although only PCs are supported at the moment of this writing, that may change at some point. Second, they’ll require an EA Origin registration.
In order to connect an Origin account to Skate on EA’s website, a player must have both of these items. After then, all players have to do is wait for the green light.
Gamers should be aware that not everyone who signs up will be able to participate. “Inviting gamers to engage in playtesting relying on varied parameters indicated by our aims for assessment at that moment in development” is stated in the FAQ.
Those that are selected must also be on their toes in terms of their conduct. Recipients of this invitation are required to “keep debate and comments to the proper channels.” Skate glitch compilations aren’t appropriate for this forum.
A first glimpse at the upcoming Skate game reveals that it will be considerably different from the previous iterations of the series. Additional parkour mechanics and bigger groups of skaters are seen in the video, along with an enlarged level editor.
