EA has announced a brand new version of their SKATE franchise, to no one's surprise it's called SKATE 3. The unique feature of the game will be a complete social aspect where players can create crews of skaters that compete in challenges and missions. This co-op mode is a first for any skate based game, though there's no word as to how many players you can have in your crew
The online and offline mode will be a seamless experience and soon you'll be grinding rails, poppin ollies, and if you are really good... pulling a reverse flip kick aerial grind rail ride. Go ahead, try it. I dare you.
The game is set to ship in May of 2010 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
