By now, we've all seen videos of actors in black leotards, dotted with ping-pong balls. It's an amusing look behind the motion-capture curtain, but it rarely is as interesting as actually seeing the finished product. A new behind-the-scenes trailer for Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 breaks that mold, featuring zero ping-pong balls and a ton of in-game footage.

Watch the video below for a glimpse of the facial-scanning tech, which is described as a less-radioactive dental X-ray or, alternately, like being abducted by aliens. The developers also talk about their thoughts on multiplayer. They see it as simulating the experiencing a real-world skate park, where goals and games come up organically. That doesn't mean you won't have plenty of collectibles to snag or structured activities, though.

The game's set for release on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One Sept. 29, with offline-only versions coming to PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on Nov. 10. Last-gen versions of the game are priced at $39.99. For more on Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5, check out our feature on the game's bold new look.
