The Skater XL evolution continues AND grows! Last Wednesday, Easy Day Studios launched full cross-platform mod integration on all platforms for Skater XL, making over 250 pieces of community content available on PS4, Xbox One, and Steam. The response from gamers has set a new record on the mod.io platform with over one million downloads of community content in a single day, firmly establishing Skater XL as the top ranked game.
To commemorate the launch of this update, Skater XL will be $31.99 (20% off) on all platforms, as part of their winter sale promotions for PS4, Xbox One, and Steam.
“Setting a day one launch record for downloads demonstrates not only the hunger for more the Skater XL content, but truly illustrates the evolution of the skateboarding game genre towards being a platform for creativity and self expression,” said Dain Hedgpeth, co-founder of Easy Day Studios. “This is just the first drop of UGC as gamers can check back regularly into Skater XL for more community content in addition to original new content and features we plan to add in the near future.”
“Skater XL’s community and their excitement for mods on consoles have blown us away,” said Scott Reismanis, co-founder of mod.io. “One million downloads in 24 hours was beyond our wildest expectations and has set a new record at mod.io, showing us how exciting UGC across all platforms can be.”
The Easy Day dev team will be adding more community content on a regular basis, as well as applying patches to fix bugs when they happen. Patches resolving some crash issues associated with the update have already gone live on all platforms and performance improvements for the original three community levels released for console will also go live shortly.
Skater XL is on sale for $31.99 USD (20% off) on PS4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam as part of their winter sale promotions, and at brick and mortar retailers for PS4 and Xbox One. The Switch version of Skater XL will launch in 2021.
