Activision has announced a remastered version of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2. The two games will launch in one bundle, and will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Epic Games Store. The launch date is September 4th, 2020. You can look forward to all the classic skaters, skate parks, music, modes, and more, as well as some new features to sweeten the deal.
So, what can you expect from the remasters of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2? Well, for one thing, according to the announcement, you can look forward to the complete roster of skaters from back in the day that we’ve all come to know and love. The list includes “Steve Caballero, Geoff Rowley, Bucky Lasek, Elissa Steamer, Kareem Campbell, Andrew Reynolds, Bob Burnquist, Eric Koston, Rodney Mullen, Jamie Thomas, Rune Glifberg, Chad Muska… And of course, Tony Hawk.”
Then, of course, there are all the maps that we used to play in, “from the Warehouse to The Bullring,” as well as all the music from the first two games, which, let’s be honest, has always been one of the selling points. You can play the game solo to complete all the different goals, or play all the multiplayer modes, either online or in couch co-op. And, if you enjoyed making your own skaters or skate parks, you’d better believe that Create-A-Skater and Create-A-Park are coming back. They’ll even have brand-new features.
If you want to pre-order the upcoming Tony Hawk remasters, you can do so either with a digital or physical copy. They come with the Warehouse Demo (coming out before the game) or the Tony Hawk Mini Fingerboard, respectively. There are also two editions of the game that you can pre-order; Standard and Digital Deluxe. The latter includes extra content; namely “‘The Ripper’ skater from Powell-Peralta, unique retro outfits for Tony Hawk, Steve Caballero and Rodney Mullen, and unique retro content for the Create-A-Skater mode.”
