Tony hawk video game documentary releases trailer
In an important message shared by birthday boy Tony Hawk, Tony Hawk's original Pro Skater 1 + 2 remake series will be released this year.
When we talked about the original Tony Hawk's Pro Skater game, one of the first things we thought about was that the great soundtrack made skating more satisfying. As soon as we read the news of this remake, the familiar Superman drum sound soon got stuck in our minds.
This new version is good news for fans, both new and old. Although the original games are fun, they must have started to reveal their age. Due to the lack of outstanding skating games currently on the market, this will be a welcome addition when it launches.
The good news is that this game will be launched sooner than you think. It is very rare these days to see games announced and released in the same year, but this remastered series will be available on the virtual store on September 4, 2020.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 Remastered will be released through the Epic Games Store for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and will cost $40/£40.
If you want to quickly learn about the content of this upcoming game, please check out the official trailer below.
As we can see in the trailer, it is indeed a re-production of the original, rather than a re-invention as some people worried at first. We can see that the original environment has been remade and now looks better than ever. You will be able to glide through schools, shopping centers and Burnside as in the original version.
In addition to all the original game modes, there will also be an online multiplayer game. However, we are still not quite sure what this will include.
also confirms that the core feel of the game will remain more or less the same, which is very useful for those who want to re-enter without having to master a new set of controls.
We can also see that the family lineup of skaters will return in this title. Not only can you skate like Tony Hawk, but you can also choose other skating legends, like Steve Cavallero and Bob Byrne. Quest, Chad Musca, Jeff Rowley, Bucky Lassek, Alisha Small, Andrew Reynolds, and Karim Campbell.
This may seem like an odd statement when talking about a game being remade, but of course, many of the budding skaters from the original game have aged over time.
Interestingly, this will be featured in the game. Every skater is rescanned in-game, which means you can now skate with Tony Hawk, 52, and Steve Cavallero, 55, all day.
We are not sure if the "young" version of these skaters will also appear in the game, but judging from the trailer shown above, the scan effect is impressive and brings a unique touch to the game.
Now, let's talk about the famous soundtrack. It is not yet known for sure which songs will return, but we do know that not all original tracks will be included. This game has been around for almost 20 years, and the good news is that most of the tracks can be heard.
Early last week, developer Vicarious Visions released some soundtracks as part of the Spotify playlist, which you can play while you wait for the game to launch. The playlist currently contains only 18 songs, but nothing can stop it from changing.
The first two games have a total of 26 songs. Although we know that some songs will be missing, we still hope that there will not be too many songs. Several songs are missing from the playlist in the promotional image posted by
. We are not sure if this is just a mistake, or if they are the unfortunate minority who were not selected.
It is now easier to name a song that does not appear in the promotional image of the playlist or the song in the playlist itself. They are as follows:
Fortunately, we can get Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 Remaster without waiting too long. We are very happy to see what this remake has prepared for us, what has changed, and whether we will feel a huge amount of nostalgia the first time we jump on our board.
