The Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater not only capitalized on the skateboarding phenomenon of the mid-90s, but helped push the hobby to new heights. The video game series managed to persevere through the years after that, but it’s lost some of its shine since its heyday. Pro Skater 5, released nearly five years ago, was a mess, and we haven’t seen a major game in the series since. Activision has heard the calls from fans and is set to release a remastered bundle featuring Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 this Friday, September 4 for PS4, Xbox One, and PC as an Epic Games Store exclusive. The remaster is still available to pre-order on PC and Xbox One, and PS4. The game includes a couple of special editions, including a surprisingly affordable and cool Collector’s Edition.
Rebuilt from the ground up by Vicarious Visions, Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 includes all the great levels, skaters, and modes you remember, rendered in modern graphics with an updated list of tricks. Some of the music from the original games’ beloved soundtracks will return, including Goldfinger’s “Superman,” and the soundtrack will feature a ton of new songs as well. The remasters will only be sold as a bundle. For more details on the remaster, check out our interview with Vicarious Visions boss Jen Oneal.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 pre-order bonus
If you pre-order the Pro Skater 1 + 2 remaster, you’ll gain access to a demo of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater’s Warehouse, the level that introduced players to the arcade skateboarding game more than 20 years ago. The demo became available August 14. If you happened to get a Tony Hawk Burrito at Chipotle earlier this month (as one of the first 2,000 orders, anyway) you also got the demo, though that offer is unfortunately no longer on the table.
There’s also an exclusive pre-order bonus available at GameStop, where you’ll get a Tony Hawk mini fingerboard with your game (on top of demo access).
Pre-order Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 standard edition | $40

Pre-order Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 Deluxe Edition | $50
The Deluxe Edition of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 will cost you $50 and comes with the base game, pre-order bonus, and following in-game goodies:

Pre-order Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 Collector’s Edition | $100
A $100 Collector’s Edition is up for grabs on PS4 and Xbox One. It comes with a limited-edition Birdhouse deck, the base game, all of the Deluxe Edition goodies, and the pre-order bonus. The deck is fully skateable, but as this is a collector’s item with a printed autograph from Tony Hawk, you may not want to hit the streets with it.
The Collector’s edition is currently sold out, but there’s a chance it comes back in stock at launch.
