crea-ture Studios’s highly anticipated skateboarding simulator, Session, is finally going to be available to play after months of delays, and we couldn’t be more excited.
Session will be headed to Steam Early Access on September 17, and is due to launch on Xbox Game Preview a few weeks after that.
The game’s official description reads as follows: “Inspired by the golden era of skateboarding, Session’s primary goal is to make you experience what skateboarding really is; an incredible culture where there are no other goals other than expressing your creativity and achieving success through hard work, perseverance and bits of madness for no one else other than yourself.
“Be ready to play the most authentic and grounded skateboarding experience in the most legendary spots on earth, film and make the gnarliest skate parts out there.”
Session will use “True Stance Stick controls,” with the game page stating that “skating is one thing, skating switch is another. Learn to skate like a pro in all stances with our unique and first-ever stick per foot control system.”
The game will feature a 1:1 scale of New York, focusing on Lower Manhattan. There’s also going to be “an extended video editor that will allow the player to perform their tricks; edit, create a montage in-game and share.”
The game, which has been described as something of a ‘spiritual successor’ to the ever-iconic Skate series, was originally due to launch last year, but it seems that the development team is keen to make sure they’re delivering the best experience possible.
On Steam, the devs write: “Although we have our long term vision and roadmap for Session, we felt that Early Access was the perfect platform for us to get the game into the players hands with a core experience as soon as possible and to get important feedback earlier on.”
