Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 Remaster
The announcement came alongside an official reveal trailer for the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 remaster, which you can watch below. The trailer shows brief comparisons of classic levels from the original games alongside what they will look like in the remake.
According to the Activision Blog, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 will feature revamped versions of all the levels, pro skaters, modes, tricks, and even songs from the original games. However, the remaster will also incorporate more modern gameplay features, such as online multiplayer support. Players can shred solo, team up with a friend for local co-op, or play online in various multiplayer modes. Revamped versions of Create-A-Skater and Create-A-Park will make their return in the remaster as well.
Activision has partnered with Vicarious Visions to bring this remaster to life. The remaster combines the first two Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater games into one enhanced collection. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 will release on September 4, 2020 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via the Epic Games Store.
The Standard Edition of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 costs $39.99 and is available for pre-order. The Digital Deluxe Edition with extra in-game add-ons costs $49.99. Dedicated Tony Hawk fans can opt for the Collector’s Edition, which includes a limited-edition Birdhouse Skateboard Deck featuring the iconic Falcon 2 design. The Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 Collector’s Edition costs $99.99. Those who digitally pre-order will gain access to the Warehouse Demo this summer.
