We’re less than a month away from the highly-anticipated release of the revamped Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2.
On Friday, Aug. 14, the limited demo of the game is being released. Here’s how you can get your hands on the demo and what you can expect from it.
The Pro Skater reboot hits shelves on Sept. 4. However, some fans are getting the chance to play a bit of the game this Friday, Aug. 14. The new demo offers the first look into the video game’s new features and options.
The demo game is short but still has a lot to offer. Players get to skate around the warehouse location while getting a new feel for the game. In the demo, they are no goals to achieve, no letters to collect and no hidden tapes to discover. As well, players can only skate around as Tony Hawk and they’re only given two minutes to earn as many points as possible.
How can you access to the demo? You have to pre-order the game before it hits shelves on Sept. 4. Some fans were given copies of the demo thanks to, well, eating the right burrito. Earlier this week, Chipotle teamed up with Pro Skater to give out demos to the first 2,000 fans who ordered the “Tony Hawk Burrito.”
On Aug. 14, at 2 P.M. PST, Chipotle is hosting a 2-hour livesteam on its Twitch account. During the livestream, Hawk, fellow skateboarder Jagger Eaton and actor Finn Wolfhard (IT, Stranger Things) will play the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 warehouse demo. The trio is also giving out up to 5,000 free burritos to viewers throughout the stream.
Last month, we learned that over 30 new songs are included in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2. Machine Gun Kelly, FIDLAR, Less Than Jake, Goldfinger and Sublime are among those featured on the game’s soundtrack.
Goldfinger’s “Superman” inspired the title for the forthcoming Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 documentary. Pretending I’m A Superman offers a look into how the Pro Skater games came to be and how the franchise’s legacy got its start. The documentary arrives on digital streaming services Aug. 18.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 includes some fan-favorite features from the original games. Create-A-Park and Create-A-Skater modes have returned. This time, Create-A-Park will have massive customization options. Players can share parks online with friends and outfit skaters with skill options.
Along with the revamped game, the full roster of pro skaters players will be able to choose from was recently released. From the legendary skaters featured in the original series to new pro skaters, there is now a diverse selection of skaters to play. The new lineup is in efforts to make the game more inclusive and representative of the skating world today.
