Tony Hawk turns 52 today and to celebrate Activision has announced it’s bringing Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 back later this year. The remastered collection, which was announced as part of Geoff Keighley’s Summer Game Fest, will even have an online multiplayer mode so you and you friends can take on the half pipe.
The game, which is being developed by Vicarious Visions, the same studio behind the Crash Bandicoot remakes, will be available on September 4 on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. You’ll be glad to know that it’ll also feature updated visuals, some of the original songs, and a new and improved create-a-park mode.
Activision hasn’t shared many details about the online mode yet, but we do know that like in the old game, you’ll be able to play locally and online. We’ll have to wait and see if they include modes like King of the Hill and Graffiti, though.
“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,” Jen Oneal, Vicarious Visions’ studio head, says in a press release.
“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’s Pro Skater experience fans have been asking for.”
The collection is available to pre-order now.
