Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 new gen versions drop tomorrow, March 26, and they're bringing a host of upgrades with them.
The new-gen versions were announced last month alongside a Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 Nintendo Switch port, which is set to arrive later this year. If you own a Deluxe Digital edition of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater on either PS4 or Xbox One or a disc version on PS4, you'll get the new-gen upgrade for free (for some reason this does not apply to Xbox One physical disc owners). If you don't, you'll need to pay $10 for the upgrade, which includes improved resolution over the base console versions, spatial audio, and more.
A tweet from the official Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 account details what the PS5 version of the game will entail. Here's what you'll get with the upgrade:
120fps at 1080p
60fps at 4K
Haptic feedback and adaptive triggers
SSD and immediacy
It's great to see that the new-gen version will take advantage of the PS5 DualSense controller's haptic feedback, although it's unclear exactly how that will play out in-game. I'm guessing you'll get some nice resistance while grinding and manualing, and it'll feel extra spicy when you eat it while trying to pull off a 900.
There was no tweet detailing what's included in the Xbox Series X version of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2, but we do know that it will also include native 4K 60fps, and upscaled 4K on the Xbox Series S.
