While the Tony Hawk Pro Skater franchise has had some ups and downs in the past couple years, the series is set to make a return to its glory days, with a remastered instalment of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater and Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2 coming from Activision and Vicarious Visions (who handled the Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy remake).
Combined as one single game, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 is a full remake of the series, but brings back the original levels, skaters, tricks, modes, and songs from the iconic soundtrack, as well as adding online multiplayer.
The game will feature the full roster of original skaters, including Steve Caballero, Geoff Rowley, Bucky Lasek, Bob Burnquist, Eric Koston, Rodney Mullen, Jamie Thomas, Rune Glifberg, Chad Muska… and of course, Tony Hawk, among the other stalwarts.
The iconic special tricks will return, and the skaters will have some new manoeuvres from later Tony Hawk’s games too, including the Revert, Lip Tricks, and the Wall Plant.
The Create-a-Skater and Create-a-Park modes will return too, with some new additions too and the ability to share skater and skatepark creations online.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 will hit Xbox One, PS4, and PC on 4 September 2020.
