Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2 Remastered Hits the Modern Halfpipe Late This Summer

Summer Game Fest's second presentation pulled the curtain back on a glorious-looking Tony Hawk remaster package.

Geoff Keighley's teased announcement as part two of the Summer Game Fest dropped today as promised and was all about Tony Hawk. Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2 Remastered is launching on September 4 for PS4 and Xbox One, as well as PC via the Epic Games Store.

The reveal might have been a bit more of a surprise had the legendary skater not decided to send text messages about it a half hour before the reveal. But Tony Hawk is a boss and does what he wants. 

The "remasters" see Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2 in glorious 4K, with all the incredible locations you remember and a soundtrack straight outta' the late 90s and early noughties. There's the usual single-player mode, of course, but it's accompanied by an online multiplayer mode complete with split-screen as well.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2 is done in partnership with Vicarious Visions, who's also rumored to be handling the Diablo 2 remaster. More specifically, it's the team behind the Crash Bandicoot N.Sane Trilogy remastered.

Pro Skater 1+2 Remastered is also getting a complete control overhaul, too, making it easier to play in 2020 without tampering with the core experience.

Create-A-Park is coming back with improvements, letting you build your own skate arenas, customize them extensively, and share them online with friends. Its counterpart Create-A-Skater is back, too, with even more customization options to put yourself in the game.

There's a lot more Summer Game Fest to come, including another new announcement tomorrow, so stay tuned to GameSkinny for more game news as it develops.


Josh Broadwell started gaming in the early '90s. But it wasn't until 2017 he started writing about them, after finishing two history degrees and deciding a career in academia just wasn't the best way forward. You'll usually find him playing RPGs, strategy games, or platformers, but he's up for almost anything that seems interesting.
