Rumours of a new Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater (THPS) game have been around since last November. But nothing seems to have come of it. Instead, Activision announced the next best thing: the remaster of THPS 1+2.
The trailer indicates that THPS 1+2 will come with all of the classic characters, levels and soundtrack. But being a modern day remaster, it has a a number of new features thrown in, beyond 4K support. The game will come with a number of new, but unspecified original modes. There will also be support for online multiplayer.
THPS 1+2 is being done by Vicarious Visions, a name that should be familiar to fans of the originals. After all, it’s the same developer that worked on the Game Boy Advance versions of the series. This is also the name behind great remasters like Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy. So the game is in good hands, to say the least.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 will be available on 4 September this year. It’s not a long wait, but boy is it a painful one. It will be available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The PC version will be an Epic Games Store exclusive, though.
