Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater Remaster to Add New Songs Alongside the Classics

For many gamers Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 & 2 were landmark games growing up. I know that personally I played the first 3 entries into the series on PS1 and sunk hour after hour into them. What stood out most playing these games though was the incredible soundtrack throughout.

Activision announced that almost the full original soundtrack will be coming back for the remake. With only 5 songs missing out due to licensing issues, they’ve done a good job of capturing the distinct sound.

The 5 Missing Tracks:

  • “Cyco Vision” – Suicidal Tendencies (THPS1)
  • “Committed” – Unsane (THPS1)
  • “Bring the Noise” – Anthrax and Chuck D (THPS2)
  • “B-Boy Document ’99” – The High & Mighty featuring Yasiin Bey & Mad Skillz (THPS2)
  • “Out With The Old” – Alley Life featuring Black Planet (THPS2)

However it looks like alongside the old classics, Activision are adding some new tracks into the mix. In total, 37 new tracks will be added ranging in genres from ska punk to old-school 90’s rap.

See the full list of new artists being added below:

  • A Tribe Called Quest
  • A. Swayze & the Ghosts
  • Alex Lahey
  • All Talk
  • American Nightmare
  • Backchat
  • Baker Boy
  • Billy Talent
  • Black Prez ft. Kid Something
  • Charlie Brown Jr.

The Originals Received Great Reviews

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 & 2 is a remake of the original first 2 games bundled into one package. Below are a couple of review scores from the PS1 era games which should show you exactly why this remake is being so we’ll received.

What can I say? Tony Hawk is the most superior skateboarding game I've ever seen or imagined, and it's got to be one of the most technically impressive games I've ever seen. With games like this coming out on PlayStation, there's no reason for anyone to think it's a dying system. Go and get one.

If it could get any better than this, I'm not sure how. We'll know when Neversoft brings out part three for the PS2, I guess. Meanwhile, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 2 is one of the best games to ever grace this or any console. It looks great, it sounds great, it controls perfectly, and it brings you back for more in so many ways. The hidden areas, the hidden gaps, the secret characters (including Officer Dick, a teenage Powell-era Tony, and more), the archive of righteous FMV clips, they're all a great incentive to keep playing, but besides all that, this game is just a ton of fun to play.

After the travesty that befell the last Tony Hawk’s game, we can only hope that lessons have been learned. Only time will tell but so far, it’s looking to be an amazing throwback to the glory days of PS1 and Tony Hawk.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 &2 will be released for PS4, Xbox One, and PC via Epic Game Store on September 4, 2020.
