“For the first time, players will have the freedom to define their character, story and style based on the choices they make, the paths they choose and the style of skating they use on the proving grounds from Philadelphia and Baltimore to Washington, D.C.”

Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground will introduce to the series a Video Editor and an online Skate Lounge where players can skate with friends. Interestingly, players will be able to skate from single player to online seamlessly. Keep an eye out for this one around Christmas time.
