The father of skateboarding games returns to store shelves this week, and he’ll be joined by a new EA Sports simulation and a collected edition of one of gaming’s most famous franchises.
Tony Hawk has been a skateboarding superstar for more than 30 years, but he’s got a lot to celebrate this week as his eponymous video game series comes to the PS4 and Xbox One for the first time with Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5. The game will feature ten professional skaters including Hawk’s own son, Riley. I guess that “father of skateboarding games” thing is quite literal now.
Also available this week is NBA Live 16 (PS4, Xbox One), the latest basketball simulation from EA Sports. NBA Live 16 will feature Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder on the cover along with an all-new player movement system and an “easy-to-use HD face scanning app” known as GameFaceHD, according to EA Sports.
Finally this week, Bethesda is bringing all five games in the Fallout franchise together in a special collection known as the Fallout Anthology. Available exclusively for the PC, the Fallout Anthology will include Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout Tactics, Fallout 3, and Fallout: New Vegas. Best of all, all five games will come packed in a box shaped like an atomic bomb. Something tells me that it’ll be explosively popular.
The complete list of this week’s new releases can be found after the break.
