After nailing its Kickstarter funding goal in less than four days, Session is within arm’s reach of its first major stretch goal to unlock mini-ramps, mega-ramps and the game’s first playable pro skater: five-time X Games medalist, Elliot Sloan.
Known for his high-flying talent, Elliot won’t just be adding his likeness to the game, but he will join developer crea-ture Studios to participate in motion capture for Session’s vert update. This means that players won’t just be getting more gameplay bang for their crowdfunding buck, but they’ll be getting the expertise of one of the sport’s modern heroes.
That’s not all crea-ture Studios has been planning, though. Regardless of whether or not they hit this stretch goal, they’ve added the Session Party Pack with not one, not two, but three competitive modes for claiming supremacy among friends. Genre fans will feel right at home with S.K.A.T.E. and Spot Battle, as they challenge players to imitate their friends’ best tricks and own specific spots with their best lines, respectively. Skate or Dice stands to further shake things up, as players are tasked with nailing random tricks, as decided by a series of dice.
With just seven days to go before the campaign closes its digital doors and creā-ture Studios hunkers down in their skate lab to prepare for Early Access in early 2018, there’s still time to unlock a whole host of ways to skate! From online multiplayer and the ability to ride around, camera in hand, to Steam Workshop support and a park editor, the team at crea-ture has set out to make the most authentic skateboarding game ever and are committed to keeping their community involved in the process every step of the way.
Session’s Kickstarter is available now until December 21, with the game planned to have launch into Early Access on PC and Xbox One in Q2 2018. For the latest updates, visit crea-ture Studios’ official website or follow them on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Reddit and Instagram.
