Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 offered a faithful and fun remaking of the classic PlayStation skateboarding titles. Released on the 14th of August 2020, the game arrived at the tail end of the last generation, but too early to see a ‘next-gen’ version at the time. Now, it has officially been announced that the game will receive a PS5 and Series X|S release, and will also be coming to the Nintendo Switch.
In a press release, it was announced that “Skateboard fans get ready to do a kickflip all over again when the critically acclaimed Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 makes its way to PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S on March 26 and lands on Nintendo Switch for the first time in 2021.”
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2 was a good looking game on PS4 and Xbox One, but the PS5 and Series X versions appear to be pushing things much further. Being a sports title with a focus on trickshots, precision and timing is everything. As such, fans will be pleased to hear that on PS5 and Series X, the game will be playable at 1080p and 120fps, or native 4K and 60fps. The Xbox Series S meanwhile will see its resolution dropped to 1440p.
Other enhancements such as “High-fidelity atmospherics” and “spatial audio and more” will also be brought to these enhanced versions. Currently no information has been provided on how the Switch version of the game will run, though considering the game is further away with no concrete release date, this is understandable somewhat.
Unfortunately, the PS5 and Xbox Series X|S version will not be free to all players. Those who own the digital deluxe version will be able to upgrade to the current-gen version for free. All other owners however “can upgrade to the Cross-Gen Deluxe Bundle with all the added features for an additional $10 SRP.”
