Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 lets you wear Sackboy's head

Want to play with Sackboy's head? What's wrong with you? In a somewhat surreal pairing, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 (opens in new tab) has PlayStation exclusive character heads that include his charming knitted-ness, the not so charming Sweet Tooth from Twisted Metal and Ratchet. Announced on the PlayStation Blog (opens in new tab), these heads can be used to create custom skaters and will be available to everyone who buys the game on PS4 and PS3.

Robomodo has also revealed more about the multiplayer aspect of the game. Up to 20 skaters will be able to play together in dedicated Freeskate sessions between missions and competitive multiplayer modes. You'll also be able to challenge the whole session to a skate off, should you wish to test your prowess. Worth noting is that only the PS4 version has online features. PS3 players will be going back to the lone skating of yore. The game's out on September 29th and you can see the new trailer below.
