Several months ago, Tony Hawk revealed that the next installment in the long-running Tony Hawk series will be known as Tony Hawk: Shred. Today, Activision has released the first set of screenshots for the game. The screenshots reveal that the game will be presented with cell-shaded graphics rather than more realistic depictions as was common in previous game in the series. Furthermore, for the first time in the franchise’s eleven-year history, players will have access to snowboarding activities alongside the regular skateboarding gameplay. The screenshots can be found after the jump.
There is currently no information available regarding a possible release date, though the game is officially scheduled for a release later this year. While it is clear that Tony Hawk: Shred will be utilizing the skateboard-shaped peripheral that was included with Tony Hawk: Ride, no details are currently available regarding the way the developer is improving the motion controls. These controls were a primary source of criticism in the previous installment in the series.
