Die-hard Skate fans may finally be able to get their hands on the highly anticipated Skate 4 as Electronic Arts is beginning to roll out invites for a new playtest in July. From how you can register to when it goes live, here’s everything we know.

More than a decade removed from the last release and Skate is finally kickflipping its way back into the spotlight. Following on from its initial reveal in 2021, Skate 4 — otherwise simply referred to as just ‘Skate’ — now appears to be drawing closer to its release.

While no gameplay has been revealed just yet, excluding a brief snippet that leaked earlier this year, EA is seemingly ready to lift the veil in the coming days. 

With a new public playtest locked in for July, select fans will soon be going hands-on with the title. Here’s what you need to know.

New Skate 4 playtest dates

The upcoming Skate 4 playtest is all set to kick off at 10AM PT on Tuesday, July 5 and roll through to 5PM PT on Friday, July 8.

This gives select players roughly four days to experience the new iteration. From testing out various new features and reporting bugs to simply cruising through the open world, the build is sure to have plenty for fans to enjoy.

What platforms is the Skate 4 playtest on?

Although details have not yet been confirmed by EA directly, select players that received early invites revealed this Skate 4 playtest is exclusive to PC.

For the time being, that means console players across both PlayStation and Xbox hardware won’t be able to access the new build. However, that’s not to say EA won’t open things up down the line in future tests.
