Well, it didn’t take long: Soon after Nintendo, Xbox, Crash Bandicoot, Activision, and Tony Hawk himself harassed the impending announcement that Tony Hawk: Pro Skater 1 + 2 To new platforms, we now have confirmation of that. Activision announced this Tony Hawk: Pro Skater 1 + 2 Coming to the Switch later this year as well as getting a next-gen update on the PS5 and Xbox Series X.
Those looking for next-generation updates won’t wait long, as the update will begin on March 26th. In a blog post on Activision websiteWe are told that Tony Hawk: Pro Skater 1 + 2 It will support frame rates of 120fps in 1080p or 60fps in native 4K – except for Xbox Series S consoles, where the game will display at 1440p and upscaled to 4K.
Activision also promises that next-generation versions of the game will feature “sharper dynamic shadows, reflections and lens flare, plus improved skater textures and more.” The ability to play at 120 frames per second can be a great addition for those seeking high scores, as higher and more consistent frame rates can make pulling complex tricks easier.
Unfortunately, it looks like the upgrade will cost some money depending on the version of the game you have. If you own the game digitally, you will be able to upgrade to the Cross-Gen Deluxe Bundle for $ 10, in addition to the upgrade, you will also have access to The Ripper – one of the secret skaters in the game – along with old gear for Create-A-Skater and Skins mode. Old Tony Hawk, Steve Caballero and Rodney Mullen. If you already own the Digital Deluxe Edition on your PS4 or Xbox, you will be able to upgrade to the Next Generation Edition for free.
As for the Switch release, details are largely lacking at the moment. Sadly, those looking to capture the game on Switch will have to wait until later in the year – while the next-generation upgrade will be released on March 26th, the only thing Activision has said about the Switch release is that it will come out “later in 2021”. We’ll let you know when Activision gets more involved, so stay tuned.
