Activision has announced that Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater series is back with a remaster of the first two games for the current-gen consoles.
“The original Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater series is a big factor in the evolution of modern skateboarding tricks and inspiring many of the pro skaters you know and love today,” said Tony Hawk. “I’m excited to help inspire a new generation of skateboarders and gamers – and existing fans – to grow the sport even further.”
The game will include features from across the Pro Skater franchise such as revert, lip tricks, wall plant and original multiplayer game modes, both online and for local couch play.
The Create-A-Park and Create-A-Skater modes are also making a return. The park editor has new and more robust customization features, so you can share them online with friends.
“Getting the chance to bring back the original two games which had such a meaningful impact not only on gaming but on an entire sports genre, has been an epic experience for our team, many of whom worked on the original series,” said Jen Oneal, Studio Head at Vicarious Visions. “We’re taking what you knew and loved from the original games and mixing that with enhanced creative tools which will allow gamers to invent brand new ways to play the game they love. We’re confident it will be the ultimate Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater experience fans have been asking for.”
You can play as a number of pro skaters including 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.
The remaster was done by Vicarious Visions, the team behind the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy. The game runs at 4K resolution on Xbox One X, PS4 Pro and PC.
