Get ready to drop into the Warehouse again and pull up Guerrilla Radio from Rage Against the Machine; Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 are being remastered and released for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC (via the Epic Game Store).

The game was announced as part of Summer Game Fest on Tuesday and is set for release on September 4th this year. Bringing back original levels, old and new goals, the original roster, and much of the original soundtrack, the game will be all wrapped up with enhanced graphics, 4K resolution, and 60 FPS.

The skaters have learned new tricks in the past 21 years, including the Revert, Lip Tricks, and the Wall Plant, which were all later additions to the Tony Hawk franchise. Create-a-skater and create-a-park will also return, and you’ll be able to share those park creations with everyone online. Online and local multiplayer modes will also return; with some twists from the original games.

Vicarious Visions is the studio behind the remaster, and they’re no strangers to bringing classics forward to the current generation. Most recently, they released the Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy, as well as Crash Team Racing: Nitro-Fueled. Vicarious’ Chief Operating Officer Simon Ebejer is confident in their ability and knows it’s a big responsibility.

“The challenge of a faithful remaster is knowing where to push the boundaries, and what to keep sacred. It’s important to capture the original experience.”

The game has a suggested retail price of $39.99, and a digital deluxe version with unique content and gear will be $49.99. Activision also announced that those who do pre-order digitally will receive access to the Warehouse demo, releasing at a date to be determined.

A collector’s edition will also be available, and it’s sure to sell out quickly. For $99.99, you’ll get the full game, digital deluxe edition content, and a full-size Birdhouse skateboard deck. With a printed autograph from Tony Hawk himself!
