The very good remaster of Pro Skater by Tony Hawk 1 and 2 hits next-generation consoles and this year’s Nintendo Switch. The game will launch on PS5 and Xbox Series X / S on March 26, but there is no specific date for the release of the Switch after “2021”. The game was first released last year for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
On next-generation consoles, you’ll be able to play the game at 120fps at 1080p resolution or at 60fps in 4K, according to a blog post. (The PS5 and Xbox Series X can run on native 4K, while the Xbox Series S version can run on 1440p and increase to 4K.) The next-generation version will also offer surround sound.

If you already own Pro Skater by Tony Hawk 1 and 2 on the PS4 or Xbox One, however, you don’t necessarily have the right to upgrade to the next generation version for free. Activision describes the different scenarios for upgrading your website, but here’s the basics:
- If you have Digital Deluxe versions of older generation games, you can download the next generation upgrade for free. (Although if you live in Japan, upgrading your PS4 to PS5 will cost 100 yen, according to Activision.)
- If you originally purchased the game digitally, however do not you have the Digital Deluxe version, you can pay $ 10 to upgrade to the Cross-Gen Deluxe Bundle, which includes Digital Deluxe content.
- If you have the physical version of the game’s PS4, you’ll be able to upgrade to the PS5 version, but you’ll need to have your drive in the console to play the next-generation version.
- If you have the physical version of the Xbox One, you’re out of luck – there’s no upgrade offer for the Xbox Series X / S version.
