Skate is Having a 6-week-long Playtest Starting February 6

EA Skate Artwork Has Been Leaked

Skate will be conducting one of its longest playtests yet lasting for six weeks and starting on February 8.

Several Insider Gaming readers have provided us with the playtest email invite, which states the playtest is for PC only, but participants can only use the Xbox One, Xbox Series S|X, PlayStation 4, or PlayStation 5 controllers. Currently, keyboard and mouse controls are not yet supported.

The playtest will start on February 6 at 10 AM PT and end on March 19 at 5 PM PT.

As expected, the playtest will be under an NDA, meaning that players will be unable to record, stream, or discuss the game’s content. Recipients of the email will be able to invite up to three friends to join the playtest.

You can sign up for the playtest on the official EA Playtest website. Subsequently, you can sign up to be a playtester for a number of companies by reading our ‘How to Become a Game Playtester‘ article.

Skate was first revealed to be in developed at EA Play in June 2020 and will be a free-to-play title when it launches. EA is yet to announce when the game will be officially released.
