Skate 4 is still a long way off. This is something I told fans of the series when they asked me about it. And it will stay that way. But that doesn’t mean the Skate team at EA isn’t making progress. The publisher is constantly testing an early, pre-alpha version of Skate 4, and now a video of it has leaked online.

This is Skate 4 pre-alpha footage. This matches what I’ve heard from multiple people about where the game is located. They’re trying to get the right feel, which is probably the most important aspect of a skate game. https://t.co/AXNV2Agk6z pic.twitter.com/nUINhghxLg

In a clip posted to Odysee.com, fans can see textureless skater grind and trick through a world without texture. These are clearly images of the game from a prototyping phase. And this is something that fans of the series take as a good sign, as it indicates that EA is trying to make the game feel just right.

It’s also a sign that EA is serious about giving developers enough time to create prototype ideas for their games. That’s a design method that has proven popular and lucrative for EA’s Respawn Entertainment, and it’s one that EA aims to replicate in its other studios.

Skate 4 probably won’t be out this year, but maybe we’ll hear more about the game soon.
