In addition to the trick-heavy, freewheeling gameplay, one of the most beloved aspects of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater is its soundtrack, mixing punk, rock and hip-hop to create a thrilling experience encapsulating the skate scene of the late ’90s and early 2000s.
Fresh off of last week’s announcement that the first two games will be remastered for current-gen consoles this September, new details about the re-release have surfaced. Five songs from the original two games’ soundtrack will not be included, likely due to licensing issues.
The omitted songs are Suicidal Tendencies’ “Cyco Vision,” Unsane’s “Committed, ”Anthrax & Public Enemy’s “Bring the Noise,” The High & Mighty’s “B-Boy Document ‘99 ” and Alley Life’s “Out With The Old.”
Fortunately, the rest of the games’ iconic soundtracks will be included, from Goldfinger’s “Superman” to Rage Against the Machine’s “Guerrilla Radio,” bringing gamers right back to the late-’90s and 2000 eras in which the first two games were originally released. All classic game modes, skaters and levels are said to return.
Published by Activision and developed by Vicarious Visions, the remastered Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 will hit shelves on Sept. 4, 2020, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
While Tony Hawk's Pro Skater has a classic soundtrack, several tracks won't be in the remastered release. Here are the omissions.
