Tony Hawk and Vicarious Visions have come together to bring back Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 remastered for PlayStation 4, the family of Xbox One devices and PC.
Dropping on September 4, Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 and 2 is all about bringing back the original levels, skaters, tricks, modes, and songs from the iconic soundtrack, as well new ways to play including online multiplayer.
All of this will be presented in 4K resolution* with updated and enhanced graphics running at a frame rate of 60 FPS.
According to Vicarious Visions parent company Activision, “Many of the unforgettable songs from the original games are back to help amp you up …”
The original soundtracks included songs from Anthrax, Rage Against The Machine and Suicidal Tendencies.
Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 and 2 will feature the full original roster of pro skaters from the turn of the 21st century: Steve Caballero, Geoff Rowley, Bucky Lasek, Elissa Steamer, Kareem Campbell, Andrew Reynolds, Bob Burnquist, Eric Koston, Rodney Mullen, Jamie Thomas, Rune Glifberg, Chad Muska, and of course, Tony Hawk.
These skaters all come with their own Special Moves – from Geoff Rowley’s Darkside Grind to Tony Hawk’s legendary 900 – and have learned a few new tricks over the past two decades, including the Revert, Lip Tricks, and the Wall Plant.
“It was incredible to play the original games on PlayStation back in 1999 and to see the overwhelming response from the PlayStation community, so I’m excited to bring the game back to all the hardcore THPS fans on PlayStation again this year,” Tony Hawk said.
The remaster will also feature all the original levels from the first two games in the franchise, from the Warehouse to The Bullring.
Those levels can be played solo with goals old and new, with a buddy for local co-op, or online with original multiplayer game modes.

Keeping in mind though, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X are both slated for release in ‘holiday 2020’ in the US, meaning October – December.
