  • News OlliOlli 2 Brings Skateboarding Shenanigans to PS4 and Vita in 2015

So with this in mind, we're delighted - if slightly concerned - to report that the indie darling will be receiving a sequel. Set to launch on PlayStation 4 and Vita in March 2015, the game is officially...

    Review OlliOlli

    Cool boarder

    Once at the apex of industry excitement, the extreme sports genre’s popularity has faded faster than the artwork on an abused skateboard.
