After months of hype and anticipation, the wait is finally over — Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2, the videogame let players pull off insane skateboard combos from the comforts of their living room, arrives today. Now fans can be the G.O.A.T with Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, the family of Xbox One devices from Microsoft, including the Xbox One X, and on PC through the Epic platform.
“I’m thankful for the quality and care that Activision and Vicarious Visions have put into the remaster to revive the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater series in the best way possible,” said Tony Hawk. “For years, fans have asked me about bringing these games back, and I’m proud to say that we finally have a game that delivers on the expectations that nostalgic fans want while inspiring a new generation to pick up a controller, and perhaps even a real skateboard.”
To celebrate the launch, Activision recreated the game’s iconic Warehouse level for Tony to skate in real life. Check out the epic scene as Tony shreds in the nostalgic setting for the first time. Vans was also on hand to capture the entire process. They’ll release a special behind-the-scenes look at the real-life recreation of the Warehouse on September 5 at 12 a.m. (GMT+8).
The faithful remaster of the first two legendary games in the franchise returns in one glorious package, combining all the original levels, OG pro-skaters and tricks, including revert, lip tricks, wall plant with new ways to play, new pro-skaters, new music and more, all in beautiful 4K on supporting systems. And yes, Create-A-Park and Create-A-Skater modes are back! New to Create-A-Park this time around is a robust editor enabling new ways of customization. Players will be able to share parks online with friends and outfit skaters with customization options. New features to the remaster also include even more goals than before, added challenges to amp up gameplay and more.
“Our number one priority with the remaster was to honor the legacy, handling and quality of the original games,” said Jen Oneal, Studio Head at Vicarious Visions. “Seeing and hearing fans around the world share their excitement and love for the Warehouse demo only confirms that we accomplished what we set out to do. At Vicarious Visions, we’re huge fans of the franchise and we can’t wait to play with fans. We hope they have as much fun playing the remaster as much as we did making it.”
