The new ‘Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2’ update makes it easier to replay
It's been two months since the rebooted Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2 hit the market. Now, after becoming the franchise's highest-selling game ever, the video game is getting some new updates that are completely free.
Along with new Create-A-Skater items, players are getting access to new solo tours and challenges, making it easier than ever to replay the game.

On Friday, Nov. 6, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2 players gained access to some new updates that are completely free. To start, some new additions to the Create-A-Skater option make it even easier to create the exact pro skater you've always wanted to play.
One of the free updates includes several new in-game items in celebration of Crash Bandicoot 4: It's About Time. The new shirts, hats and skateboards feature Crash, Coco and the new quantum masks from the latest video game. All of the new items can be found exclusively in the Create-A-Skater section.
Now, the crossover between the two games may seem random. However, seeing as both franchises are owned by Activision, it's not surprising that Crash Bandicoot content has made its way over to Tony Hawk's Pro Skater.
Within the Create-A-Skater mode, players also now have access to fan-created skateboard decks. The creations were recently submitted to a Tony Hawk's Pro Skater competition and eventually selected for the game.

Along with the new Create-A-Skater items, the Pro Skater update is making it easier than ever to replay the game. The game is introducing solo tours that allow players to replay both of the Pro Skater tours that are available within the game. While in this mode, both medals and goals are reset between skaters, making it easier to raise stats and also max out pro skaters.
For those of you worried about losing previous progress in the game, don't worry. All of the completed tours will be moved over a new section called "Crew Tours."
100 new challenges and 10 challenge sets are also being added to Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2. These latest additions allow for plenty of new playing opportunities within the game's various modes including Create-A-Park, solo tours and multiplayer. All of these new challenges are designed to help players reach level 100 with their skaters.
All of these latest updates are available for individuals that have already purchased Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1+2. If you haven't picked up a copy yet, you can do so here.
