This Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 video slams with friends

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 was officially announced back in May, though Activision's kept the Hawk's return to gaming pretty well caged up since then. But you can get a pretty detailed look at the new project, and at a couple people who I will assume are actual professional skaters, in this new behind-the-scenes video.

The video even details one of the new moves headed to Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5, a "slam" which lets you send your skater plummeting out of the air toward your next grind or manual. It looks like a fast, satisfying way to cancel out of over-long jumps and keep combos climbing, so who cares if it's physically impossible?

You'll also get a quick look at THPS 5's current-gen exclusive online multiplayer. Up to 20 players can pour into a single skatepark (including custom stages), facing off in direct competitions or just keeping each other company as they work through single-player challenges. Either way, your progress will persist through both online and offline play.
