'Tony Hawk's Pro Skater' returns this year and adds... projectiles?

Get ready to Ride again. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 is heading to Xbox One and PlayStation 4 later this year, with Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions slated to launch shortly afterward, Game Informer's June cover story confirms. The game is published by Activision and it's in development at Robomodo, the studio behind 2009's Tony Hawk: Ride, 2010's Tony Hawk: Shred and 2012's Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 may bear the series' classic numerical name, but it has a few fresh additions, including power-ups and "the ability to shoot projectiles for specific missions," the site says. Players will be able to create and share skate parks, and the game features online co-op and competitive play. We learned in 2014 that Activision was back in the Tony Hawk game, though details remained vague until today. Considering those details included "projectiles," the veil of mystery makes sense.
