Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 Remaster on the PS5 and Xbox Series X? Count us in.
After a few disappointing entries in the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater franchise, gamers finally got what they asked for in the form of the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 Remaster, which combined the first and second games in the series into one new shiny package.
Now, this excellent remaster is heading to the Switch and next-gen consoles (PS5 & Xbox Series X).
It was announced that the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 Remaster would be heading to next-gen consoles (the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S) this year.
To be more specific, next-gen owners will be able to get their hands on the games on the 26th of March 2021.
The games were originally released on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC last year, and it’s great to see them heading to the next-generation of consoles. The next-gen version of the games will be playable at 120fps at a resolution of 1080p or at 4K at 60fps.
For those tech-savvy gamers, it was also revealed that both the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X would run the games at native 4K, while the Xbox Series S would run at 1440p and upscale to 4K. Even more great news is that the games will also be releasing on the Nintendo Switch.
But wait. That’s not all.
According to Activision, if you own the Digital Deluxe versions of the previous-gen games, you can download the next-gen versions for free. However, if you own a digital copy of the game and not the Digital Deluxe version, you will be able to upgrade by paying an additional $10. It also seems that if you own the physical PlayStation 4 versions of the games you will be able to upgrade to the Playstation 5 versions.
Unfortunately, there is no news yet on whether you will be able to upgrade to the X/S versions of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 Remaster if you have the physical Xbox One versions.
