Publisher Activision and developer Vicarious Visions have announced new Xbox Series X+S, PS5, and Switch ports for Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2.
Owners of the original version of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 for Xbox One or PlayStation 4 will be able to upgrade to the next-generation version for a $10 charge, while Digital Deluxe Edition owners can upgrade for free. The upgrade includes the secret skater Ripper, retro duds for Create-A-Skater mode, as well as retro skins for Tony Hawk, Steve Caballero, and Rodney Mullen.
It’s worth noting the Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 versions of the game will render at a native 60FPS and 4K resolution, or at 1080p and 120FPS, and the Xbox Series S version will render at 1440p and upscale to 4K. Save data is also transferable, but Create a Park data isn’t transferable for PlayStation users.
Here’s a rundown on the new versions, via Activision:
The upcoming, next-gen versions of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 will give players a variety of upgrades, such as super crisp 120 FPS at 1080P, native 4K at 60 FPS, spatial audio and more, while the game on Nintendo Switch™ will give fans the chance to ollie with Tony Hawk and the line-up of pro-skaters on-the-go.
As the fastest Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater game to sell 1 million units, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 is a faithful remaster of the first two iconic games in the franchise, blending all the original levels, pro-skaters, old-school tricks and more that gamers remember from the ‘90s and 2000s with new, beautifully recreated levels.
High-fidelity atmospherics will be added to the next-gen upgrade for Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2. This unique graphical feature will allow players to enjoy the experience of sharper dynamic shadows, reflections and lens flares, as well as enhanced skater textures and more on next-gen consoles.
Digital players can upgrade to the Cross-Gen Deluxe Bundle with all the added features for an additional $10 SRP. The upgrade includes access to the secret skater Ripper (a.k.a. the infamous Powell-Peralta mascot), retro gear for Create-A-Skater mode, and retro skins for Tony Hawk, Steve Caballero and Rodney Mullen. Additionally, Activision Blizzard, Inc. (NASDAQ: ATVI) is giving fans who already own the digital deluxe version of the game on PlayStation® 4 and Xbox One a next-gen upgrade at no cost (except in Japan) on March 26.
