Happy birthday, Tony Hawk! The famed skateboarder turns 52 today. And to celebrate, Activision announced that it is releasing Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 as a remake this fall.
Vicarious Visions is developing the game. It’s the same studio that reinvigorated Crash with the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy. Although it is being dubbed a remaster, it’s clear from the gameplay that it is actually a remake.
According to Activision, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 will be bundled together in one package. The remake blends all the original levels, pro-skaters, old-school tricks, and more that gamers remember from the ’90s with new, beautifully recreated levels. It will also include blockbuster songs from the original franchise.
The remake will also include fan-favorite features from games across the entire original franchise. It will include revert, lip tricks, wall plant, and original multiplayer game modes – both online and local couch play. Create-A-Park and Create-A-Skater modes are also back.
Additionally, fans can select their favorite skaters from the complete roster of original pro talent. Play as Tony Hawk, Bucky Lasek, Steve Caballero, Geoff Rowley, Andrew Reynolds, Elissa Steamer, Chad Muska, Eric Koston, Rodney Mullen, Rune Glifberg, Kareem Campbell, Jamie Thomas, and Bob Burnquist. New features include even more goals than before, added challenges to amp up gameplay, and more.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 drops on September 4. The game is coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Epic Games Store.
