Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and a couple of (that’s the total identify) goals to faithfully re-store these video games with 4K visuals and extra.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and a couple of launches September Four on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC for $40. Developer Vicarious Visions, which has labored on the Tony Hawk video games practically from the start, is overseeing this mission.
“Getting the chance to bring back the original two games which had such a meaningful impact not only on gaming, but on an entire sports genre, has been an epic experience for our team, many of whom worked on the original series” mentioned Jen Oneal, the studio head at Vicarious Visions. “We’re taking what you knew and loved from the original games and mixing that with enhanced creative tools which will allow gamers to invent brand new ways to play the game they love. We’re confident it will be the ultimate Tony Hawk Pro Skater experience fans have been asking for.”

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and a couple of is trustworthy to your reminiscences
With Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and a couple of, Vicarious Visions is aiming to convey again the expertise of your youthful reminiscences. That doesn’t essentially imply that the studio is rebuilding the very same video games however with higher visuals. But, for probably the most half, every part is identical.
You’ll discover all of the phases. And skaters like Elissa Steamer, Eric Koston, and Rune Glifberg are all returning alongside Tony Hawk.
But Vicarious Visions is barely updating Tony Hawk 1 + 2 to be extra consistent with the later entries within the collection. This primarily comes within the type of reverts that proceed to tie combos collectively after vert methods. This didn’t initially seem within the skateboarding sport till Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3, nevertheless it became a key function all through each different sport.
Bringing the revert again into the primary two video games ensures that THPS will really feel like individuals image it of their heads. And it’s precisely what I would like from a 4K improve. Let’s simply hope that Vicarious Visions, which did the unimaginable Game Boy Advance model of THPS 2, nails the remainder of the sport as effectively.
