Skate 4 gameplay footage, which seems to have been leaked online for around 30 seconds, is already proving to be popular with fans.

Pre-alpha gameplay footage is shown in the brief video, which comes courtesy of industry insider Jeff Grubb and indicates that the game is still in its early stages of development. Character models are seen executing various acrobatics, including a kickflip and grind, and navigating the game’s landscape. Just to make things even more interesting, there are a couple front flips thrown in for good measure.


Grubb explains that the developer is now trying out this early iteration of the game in order to nail the “feel” before fleshing it out with additional information in this pre-alpha gameplay video. Despite the fact that this leak doesn’t exactly demonstrate how the completed game will look or play, it does indicate a degree of fluidity that Skate aficionados are sure to like.

Two things are quite clear from this early-access gaming video. First and foremost, EA is obviously giving Full Circle the time it needs to make a game worthy of the Skate brand. Secondly, this would indicate that the final product is still some time away. If Skate 4 is still in the pre-alpha stage, Grubb previously claimed he didn’t anticipate it to arrive until 2022.


Creative director Cuz Parry and game director Deran Chung initially unveiled Skate 4 at E3 2020, which would be known as Skate. A sequel to 2010’s Skate 3 has been long sought for by fans on the internet, but EA had refused to give it the go light. Skate 4 is a widely anticipated skateboarding video game, but we haven’t seen any gameplay footage or even a good trailer for the game yet.

As a workaround, interested parties may view the pre-alpha video and fill in the gaps as many times as they’d like. For those who spent their adolescent years immersed in the original Skate trilogy, the full trilogy is now accessible on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S thanks to Xbox backwards compatibility.

For those of us who have been waiting for a new Skate game for 12 years, we’ve learned to be patient.
