With Tony Hawk personally unveiling the news that Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 will be out sometime this year for xBox One and PS4 we couldn’t help but fantasise about what tracks we want to hear will pulling treys and grinding the shit out of everything.
The game sees a return to the classic gameplay of the series’ roots although with some modern tweaks including power-up perks and being able to handle and shoot projectiles.
With the update comes familiar faces including Tony himself but a new wash of skaters including Nyjah Huston, Aaron Homoki, Ishod Wair, Riley Hawk, Lizzie Armanto, Chris Cole, David Gonzalez, Leticia Bufoni, and Andrew Reynolds.
Those wanting to shred with some buddies can via the co-op but solo missions are on hand as well as random multiplayer adventures.
Soundtrack details are yet to be announced but like a lot of modern games comes electronic influenced beats (outside of the 5 Best Video Game Soundtracks Ever) we’re hoping to see some badass dance in there much like GTA V’s heavily weighted radio stations, especially those from Australia.
5 Australian Dance Tracks We Want To Hear On Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5
1. Carmada – Maybe
Maybe? Nah, for sure you want to hear this trap banger while attempting that 1200 in the vert section of your favourite skate park.
2. Motez – Ride Roof Back (Radio Edit)
When you’re laying a 50-50 across the top of a car for a challenge there wouldn’t be a more fitting song then Motez’s “Ride Roof Back” with its dubby house elements. Motez recently was in the studio helping out some new producers with their music, what a guy! Watch and listen here.
3. Alison Wonderland – Cold (Slumberjack Remix)
Another trap bomb and a good way to include two Aussies into the list with Slumberjacks remix of Alison Wonderland. This would be the ultimate countdown to some challenge where you have to smote a couple of snowmen on an ice challenge.
4. What So Not – Gemini Ft. George Maple
Here’s hoping there’s some slow motion replay action in Tony Hawk Pro Skater 5 with What So Not’s “Gemini” featuring George Maple an obvious pick.
5. Flight Facilities – Down To Earth
You’ve just kick flipped off a freakin’ building and where are you headed? “Down To Earth” baby, so the Flight Facilities lick with the same name would be an all too fitting tune to hear!
