It’ll unlock the Skate Career with 15 events, 4 stunts and 3 new sponsors: Pizza, Mini Logo and Powell Peralta.

New gameplay features: Once you’re on the skateboard, you’ll notice a few changes from the way you played in Republic. A different scoring method. And pipe edges are now fair game for grinding! The BMX hasn’t been left behind and will be able to grind bowls and pipes as well!
