Easy Day Studios announced today plans to integrate community created mods into the core Skater XL experience, making Skater XL one of the first games to integrate true cross-platform modding. Today’s trailer focuses on the first drop that makes maps and gear, created by modders, easily accessible on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. This community content integration, powered by Mod.io, will begin in December 2020, with a steady stream of player-created maps and gear to follow.
“Skater XL has always been driven by its passionate community, and we have been blown away by the creativity and technical abilities of our devoted group of mod creators,” states Dain Hedgpeth, Co-Founder at Easy Day Studios. “To be able to introduce these mods to players on all platforms is a huge step forward, not just for Skater XL, but for games evolving towards being open, creative platforms.”
Today’s trailer highlights the following community created maps:
- Riverfern – Created by Taitjames from Sydney, Australia, this map features a mash-up of real life skate spots found in the land down under.
- Quebec Skate Plaza – Created by AlexLaskka from Quebec City, Canada, this map is a highly accurate replica of the well known skate park found in the great white north.
- Applewood Park – Created by ROARTEX89 from Kent, England, this map caters to all skating styles with huge stair sets, its own skatepark, hubba ledges, techy manual pads and more.

Skater XL is now available for $39.99 USD on PS4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam, and at brick and mortar retailers for PS4 and Xbox One.
