Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 has been officially unveiled in the latest issue of Game Informer.
It will be developed by Robomodo, which was responsible for two of the lowest-rated Tony Hawk games so far: Tony Hawk: Ride and Tony Hawk: Shred.
Pro Skater 5 will feature solo, co-op, and competitive modes, and you'll also be able to level up your character.
One new addition: some missions will allow players to collect power-ups and shoot projectiles.
Pro skaters Nyjah Huston, Aaron Homoki, Ishod Wair, Riley Hawk, Lizzie Armanto, Chris Cole, David Gonzalez, Leticia Bufoni, and Andrew Reynolds will all make an appearance.
The latest version of Disney Infinity will include characters and settings from the Star Wars universe.

The game’s Starter Pack will retail for NZ$120, and will include a Star Wars: Twilight of the Republic Play Set, Ahsoka Tano and Anakin Skywalker character figures, and a web code card that unlocks content for PC and mobile devices.
