Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5 getting free DLC

New courses and stages to be added to Activision's skateboarding game through a future update.

Activision will release two additional stages and five more skaters as free DLC for Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 5, the publisher announced on Friday. Right now, the game, which isn't exactly being showered with praise from gamers and critics alike, has eight stages and 10 skaters.

This announcement comes after Pro Skater 5's much-criticized release on Tuesday; players quickly reported bugs and other issues. It is unclear if this free DLC is in any way a reaction to the problems.

For its part, Activision has responded, saying it is working with Pro Skater 5 developers Robomodo and Disruptive Games on a patch that will address some of the skateboarding game's issues. However, there is no time table for when this patch -- or the free DLC -- will be released.

Pro Skater 5 is available today across Xbox One and PlayStation 4. The Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 editions, which lack the "seamless" online multiplayer featured included in the new-generation versions, are scheduled to launch in November for $40.
