For the first time ever, Tony Hawk's American Wasteland gives players the freedom to experience continuous skating and BMX biking action without leaving the game or waiting for load times as they explore and choose missions in a massive, living Los Angeles skate world.

this sounds awsome
Happy Dance

Activision has taken the wraps off of the latest game in the Tony Hawk universe, Tony Hawk's American Wasteland. The game, presumably being developed by series creator Neversoft, is planned to hit all three current generation consoles, but an Xbox 360 version of the game is also in the works. This version was briefly shown on Microsoft's MTV special, along with some very brief words from Tony Hawk himself.

The big twist for American Wasteland is that the game will take place in one large, seamless world. The world, said to be a version of Los Angeles, won't stop for loading time. The physical gameplay looks largely the same, with plenty of grinding, kick and grab tricks, the ever-popular natas spin that was introduced in THUG2, and manuals. However, the game will also allow players to ride BMX bikes. No word on if this means that the Tony Hawk and Mat Hoffman series of games are finally merging, or if this means that professional BMX riders will be in the game. Additionally, this will mark the first time that the series has had online support on a home console outside of the PS2, as the game will have Xbox Live support. No clarification was given on whether this means that just the Xbox 360 version will be online, or if the Xbox version will also contain online support.

Tony Hawk's American Wasteland is scheduled for release on multiple current-generation game consoles during the fourth quarter of this year, though it's currently unknown if, specifically, the Xbox 360 will also be released this year.

this is from the words of tony hawk and the people at E3

one word...


lol about time some one frekin sees this post god thaks for being the first jiggyjiggyjiggyjiggyjiggyjiggy


is this an attempt to cash in on the GTA style?

i for one will reserve judgement until we see whether the game with be chock full of stupid missions like pushing a guy around on a hospital trolley

Oh great, the same damn skating engine but with a big world.

Whoopie Dooo Da.

it will be available on xbox, playstation 2, gamecube, and xbox 360. it can be online for the ps2 and xbox live.

all games are turning GTA style
And personaly, I think it's great!

I think its bad there all going GTA style, mainly because GTA bored me senseless.

GTA is awesome. You can go anywhere!

This game's gonna kick ass.... the only thing I don't like is that they seem to be focusing less on skateboarding and more on other stuff (running, biking and stuff like that) but either way it should be awesome.

yea it will be awsome but im just lookin forward to playin it
