At legendary skater Tony Hawk’s 52th birthday, we got a surprise announcement from Activision. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 are returning to current-gen consoles and PC.
One can argue that calling it a Remake seems more apt than a Remaster. Vicarious Vision have completely redone the decade-old classic for today’s generation.
The remastered collection will feature updated visuals; all of the original levels, characters, and tricks; extra challenges; a more elaborate create-a-park mode where you can share custom skate parks online; and brand-new online multiplayer modes along with local multiplayer. On top of that, the games will include “the vast majority” of the iconic THPS soundtracks, though not every song made it due to licensing issues.
You can see the gorgeous remake here in action:
For some nostalgia drive, see how the remaster compares to the original Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD from 2012 in a side-by-side comparison:
The game is coming to Epic Games Store, PS4 and Xbox One this September 5. Pre-orders are now live.
