OlliOlli 2 takes inspiration from THPS 2 and Tiny Wings

In a new PlayStation Blog post, Roll7 highlights all of the improvements we can expect in OlliOlli 2, some of which have been inspired by other games.

Roll7 announced OlliOlli 2 back in late September that will feature a new OlliOlli engine as well as some other changes. Today, Simon Bennett took to the PlayStation Blog to highlight just what new features we can expect in OlliOlli 2.

One of the biggest game changers in OlliOlli 2 is the addition of Manuals and Combos, which just like in Tony Hawk Pro Skater 2, allows players to chain together combos, which increases the scoring potential the higher the combo. Grind switches have also been included, which makes it possible to switch between two grind types, so long as you nail the grind perfectly, and Epic Tricks.

As far as levels go, OlliOlli 2 will include curved ground, ramps, and rails, which are said to add a completely new flow that is reminiscent of Tiny Wings’ gameplay mechanics as skaters will need to compress and release out of ramps.

A new game mode was also teased, called Combo Rush, although Roll7 will disclose what we can expect from it later this month.
