Update: Activision has released more details for about the new-gen versions of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2, including the Xbox Series X updates you can expect to enjoy. Here's what the Xbox Series X update will include

  • Cross-gen progression
  • Native 4K at 60fps
  • Spatialized audio
  • SSD and Quick Resume
  • 1440p at 120fps
  • High fidelity atmospherics

Activision also revealed a Cross-Gen Deluxe Bundle (aka the upgrade) which will cost $10 and will get you the Ripper secret skater, retro gear for the Create-a-Skater mode, and retro skins for Tony Hawk, Steve Caballero, and Rodney Mullen.

Original Story: 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 
  • Cross-gen progression
  • Haptic feedback and adaptive triggers
  • 3D audio
  • Activities
  • 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
