Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 has been released for the PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X|S. Now, next-gen console players can enjoy the classic Tony Hawk skating games in all their glory.
The Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 collection comes with new features to improve the gaming experience. The revamp provides upgrades to resolution, frame rate, lighting, and textures. Now, you’ll be able to see every little detail of your skateboard’s deck as you get big air to perform the wildest tricks, all at lightning speed.
Owners of the PS5 and Xbox Series X can play at a native 4k and 60 frames per second. Xbox Series S players, however, only get a resolution boost of 1440p. All players have the option to switch to 1080p and 120FPS to provide them with the extra fluidity they need to land those slick trick combos.
For those who bought the standard previous-gen digital releases, there is an added cost to upgrade. The $10 Cross-Gen Deluxe Bundle allows you to upgrade and also unlocks a skater and some retro gear.
Those who purchased the Digital Deluxe Edition, on the other hand, will not have to pay for the Cross-Gen Deluxe Bundle to upgrade from PS4 or Xbox One.
Also worth noting is that Xbox Series X|S players will have game syncing as an automated feature on their consoles. Owners of the PS5, however, will need to upload saves from the previous version and download them onto the new console.
Those who are just buying the games for the first time on their next-gen consoles need not concern themselves with any of this hassle. Instead, they can dive right in and get straight to shredding after they purchase the game.
The new Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 collection will also be made available to Nintendo Switch players later this year. However, a release date for this upgrade is yet to be announced.
