OlliOlli2 got announced at London’s EGX, New Screenshots released
The iconic ‘skater’ is going all green-screen and getting radical at Olliwood Studios, plucking him from the street and dropping him squarely in the middle of the Big Screen’s most bodacious cinematic locations.
Gameplay will be massively enhanced with the addition of Ramps, Jumps and Epic Hills allowing for monster air and split level routes. The much praised OlliOlli combo system is set to be EVEN deeper, through the joy of Manuals, Reverts, Revert Manuals and Grind Switching. The team are even updating the hallowed ‘Tricktionary’ with new specials including 540 Shuvits, Anti-Casper Flips and Darkslides to name but a few.
To accommodate the sheer volume of action, the ‘skater dude’ and his pixelated world are being given a stunning new art makeover, with clean lines, gorgeous new backgrounds and Über detailed trick animations (over 9000 EXTRA frames of hand drawn goodness!)
OlliOlli2 Producer, Tom Hegarty is hyped about progress;‘OlliOlli2 will be the embodiment of skateboarding flow and flair, with a whole new world of opportunities for the skater to bust out a crazy set of tricks and moves…’
There will be 5 NEW worlds, 50 NEW Amateur and Pro Levels and 250 NEW Challenges to tear through, alongside with the much loved Daily Grind, Spots Mode and RAD Mode.
On top of this smorgasbord of delights, OlliOlli2 is set to have a NEW Mode; Combo Rush. This mode is a split-screen Local Multiplayer (up to 4 players) that pits players in a race to ramp up big scores on a spot in a set time limit.
Once again the crate diggers at Roll7 are scouring the airwaves for a shimmering 18 track curated extended Soundtrack to the game that you can just leave playing all day…
