In a recent post to the official Skate 4 website, the game developers welcomed eager fans to get a glimpse of what Skate 4 will have to offer upon release. “We told you we’re back, and we’re still working on it, but it’s time for you to see what we’ve been up to. It’s still early, but we want to get this right and that means we want you to be a part of it.”

EA Sports added that Skate fans will be able to play “early versions of the game” and will have a chance to provide feedback via closed playtests. The playtests are said to be invite-only and users will not be permitted to share videos, screenshots, or livestreams of any Skate 4 playtest content. Have a look for yourself at the trailer below.

As mentioned, players will have the chance to join the Skate 4 playtest and jump into all the action before the title officially releases. To be eligible for the playtest period, players must sign up/sign in to the EA Sports playtest program.

The sign-up is free of cost, but you'll have to agree to a few terms and stipulations in order to be eligible for the Skate 4 playtest. Sharing any videos, captures, screenshots, or streaming of anything in the game is prohibited. It's also an invite-only basis from the game developers, so there's no guarantee you'll be selected.
