As we continue to build out the Skater XL Multiplayer and social ecosystem, we are stoked to add another small but very useful piece with the release of Spectate Mode. This feature allows players in Multiplayer rooms to easily watch other players skate and join their session anywhere on the map.
To use this feature, press and hold Y/🔺when in Multiplayer and select ‘Spectate’. Once spectating a player, you can toggle between fixed, orbit, tripod and free cam by pressing Y/Triangle. L and R on the D-Pad will allow you to switch the player you are spectating to other players in the room.
Another small addition is you can now switch camera focus between players in replay mode by pressing LB / RB. This allows you to easily check out the replays of friends and strangers as well as your own.
As we all know, part of any skate session involves hanging back and watching your friends and strangers try their tricks, getting sparked, and trying your own. We think the addition of the Specate Mode and replay player switching help to bring this element into Skater XL, and helps to further build an authentic skateboarding experience.
Thanks again for all the support and we hope you enjoy this new feature.
