Helskate brings Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater to hell

Posted on June 10, 2023

A new twist on skateboarding caught our attention at the Day of the Devs as part of Summer Games Fest 2023, Helskate, is a demonic skate-action game.

Set in the underworld, Helskate offers a refreshing take on skateboarding. It offers a unique blend of rural skateboarding and supernatural combat elements, chaining your combos in with attacks against enemies. With a distinct comic book aesthetic and an incredible soundtrack, the game oozes attitude.

Prepare to take on the Gods of Skating and test your skills against the challenges presented by Vertheim. The influence of the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater series is clear in Helskate, with players being able to tackle half pipes with a satisfying sense of weight. Helskate looks poised to reignite the excitement of open-world skateboarding games.

Described as a skateboarding action game, Helskate invites players to grind, perform tricks, and chain combos to power up their attacks against the creatures of Vertheim.

Experimentation is encouraged by allowing players to combine and upgrade different weapons and gear to suit their playstyle. Permanently enhance abilities through tattoos, giving an edge in the unforgiving hellscape.

Helskate was conceived from the mind of one of the developers from Tony Hawk’s Underground. As the 2003 game was being developed, they noticed the role-playing elements of upgrading stats and the potential for melding fantasy with skating. Now, we are graced with a wonderful combination of both.

Get ready to shred and conquer the underworld when Helskate launches in the near future.
