PS3 version of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 won’t have online modes

Strangely, the PS3 version of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 will not support online versus or cooperative modes.

On PlayStation 4, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 5 will support a variety of online modes. Players will be able to complete goals together, challenge others, and share custom skateparks. But Activision has confirmed to VideoGamer that the PS3 version won’t support any of this functionality.

At this time, we don’t know why the PS3 version is getting shorted, just that last-gen players have some solo skating awaiting them. In general, details about the return of this franchise are scarce, but we do know that Activision is placing an emphasis on returning to the series’ roots. The callback name symbolizes that.

At the same time, we’ve been told to expect power-ups and shooting projectiles, so who knows with this one.
