Publisher Activision and developer Vicarious Visions will release Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, and Switch on March 26, the companies announced.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 first launched for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via the Epic Games Store on September 4.
Users who purchased the standard edition of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 for PlayStation 4 or Xbox One will be able to upgrade to their next-generation counterpart for a $10 fee. The upgrade also includes access to the secret skater Ripper, retro gear for Create-A-Skater mode, and retro skins for Tony Hawk, Steve Caballero, and Rodney Mullen. Users who purchased the Digital Deluxe Edition can upgrade at no additional cost (except Japan).
The PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X versions will render at native 4K resolution at 60 frames per second, or 1080p at 120 frames per second, while the Xbox Series S version will render at 1440p and upscale to 4K. Save data can also be carried over, though PlayStation users will not be able to transfer “Create a Park” data.
Here is a full overview of the new versions, via Activision:
The upcoming, next-gen versions of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 will give players a variety of upgrades, such as super crisp 120 frames per second at 1080P, native 4K at 60 frames per second, 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 one million units, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 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 1990s 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 + 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. 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.
