(Pocket-lint) – We’re eagerly anticipating the launch of EA’s next entrant to the Skate franchise, and our next hit of news will be coming via The Board Room live stream.
The first Board Room stream took place in July 2022, and it dropped some serious information, including the somewhat controversial decision to make it a free-to-play live service game.
We’re hoping that the next live stream will answer even more questions, as well as give us a glimpse at some more finished gameplay.
When is the next Board Room stream?
The Board Room returns with Episode 2 next Thursday 11/17 at 10am PST. We’re talking gameplay and San Vansterdam. https://t.co/ayCHQxMsvf pic.twitter.com/TbFqOONT43

What is expected to be announced?
It’s impossible to say exactly what will be revealed, all we know for sure is that the next live stream will cover gameplay and location details.
We’re predicting that we’ll hear more about the next phase of beta testing, as well as see some more polished gameplay footage to tease the kind of experience we can expect from the finished game. If we’re really lucky, we might even get an approximate release date.
During the last live stream, the team announced a huge amount. Firstly, the name was announced as simply Skate, not Skate 4, as everyone was expecting.
Then it was announced that the game will be a free-to-play live service game with years of updates and seasonal content drops. The team also revealed that the game will be cross-platform, with a mobile version, along with PC and all major consoles.
The stream showed “pre-pre-pre-alpha” gameplay footage, with cooperative building areas in which players can place ramps and objects to build their own skateparks.
Finally, the stream gave details on pre-alpha playtesting sign-ups.
