Back in 1999, Activision released Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater, which quickly became one of the best selling videogame franchises of all time. The game was so successful it kept the franchise going for more than fifteen years. However, in 2015, Hawk’s license expired, leaving the gaming series at a standstill.
In 2020 however, the series announced its return. Although the IOS game, Skate Jam, was published after the deal ended, the upcoming Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 will be the first game for next-gen consoles made in the past five years.
The game made its debut last week, on Sep. 4, and some call it the “Best. Remastered. Game. Ever.” Created by Vicarious Visions, this realistic skateboard game supports local and online multiplayer and has custom parks you can download or create yourself. Despite being sold together, each game is made individually, with nearly twenty levels. As player progress through these levels, they will discover hidden gems within each separate level.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 allows the user to either control a pro skater or make their own unique character. Along with the skater players can buy customizable outfits and accessories using the money earned throughout the game. There are various options to change the skater’s physical appearance as well, such as body type and skin tone.
The game supports PS4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows, and sells for around $40.00, depending on the location sold at. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater is rated T for Teen and has “generally favorable” reviews. Although this game was made to recreate Neversoft’s Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater, Activision says that it serves as a “new experience” to players returning and those new to the series.
