Keeping to the announcement of EA from last month, EA Access catalog now has Skate 3 included in it. Xbox One users who subscribe to the service may now download and play Skate 3 on their console.
EA previously hailed the arrival of Skate 3, Madden NFL 17, Dead Space Ignition, and Zuma’s Revenge to EA Access. We can expect the other three games to hit the EA Access Vault sometime this year for its members.
Skate 3 originally released for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 in 2010 as the third game in the series. Although receiving positive reviews from critics, Skate 3 is most popular among fans for its large amount of amusing glitches. The popularity of them growing due to many famous YouTube compilations of physics glitches and bugs of the game.
Thanks to Microsoft’s Backward Compatibility Program, Skate 3 came along for the Xbox One console in November last year. Marking it as the only Skate game to arrive for the current generation of consoles.
Picking up where Skate 2 left off, the player is already one of the best skaters in the world. However, unlike the locale of the previous games, this time taking place at a more vibrant and skater friendly city,
Players will get to skate in three distinctly different districts inside the city of Port Carverton. Additionally, many iconic members of the skateboarding scene also make appearances throughout the game.
Amidst rumors of an upcoming announcement of Skate 4 plus the community manager of EA even tweeting about Skate 4 quite recently, this could be a method to gauge the interest of players before EA commits to a full-on sequel that many Skate fans have been pining for.
Skate 3’s entrance to EA Access pushes the list of games it’s offering to over 40 titles, in addition to other benefits of the service, such as early access, trials, and discounts to EA games available on the Xbox One.
EA Access is available for $5 a month or $30 a year on the Xbox One. A PC counterpart in the form of Origin Access also exists, with the same benefits and costs, however, the games list will differ slightly due to exclusives of the respective platforms.
