You already know the legends of the Tony Hawk’s™ Pro Skater™ 1 and 2 roster – from Elissa Steamer to the Birdman himself, these extreme athletes defined an era of skateboarding.

With the launch of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2, Vicarious Visions are now bringing the past, present, and future of skateboarding together with eight additional skaters joining the lineup of OGs in this epic remaster.

These eight skaters – Lizzie Armanto, Leo Baker, Leticia Bufoni, Riley Hawk, Nyjah Huston, Tyshawn Jones, Aori Nishimura, and Shane O’Neill – represent the star examples of the still-growing skateboarding community today and will skate alongside the legendary roster from 1999 and 2000 in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2.

Just like the original pros, these new skaters are here with their own style, stats, and their own signature tricks to represent their strengths and accomplishments they have earned so far in their young careers.

Here’s a quick background on each of these eight newcomers:

Earned victories at Tampa Pro and various SLS events around the world. You can learn more about these new skaters on the official @TonyHawktheGame Instagram, the landing account for short bios and behind the scenes looks at skaters both old and new.

Return to the Warehouse

Are you more than set to shred and digitally pre-ordered the game ahead of its September 4 release? Then get ready for the Warehouse.

Those that pre-order the game digitally on PlayStation® 4, PlayStation® 4 Pro, the family of Xbox One devices from Microsoft, including the Xbox One X, and on PC through the Epic platform will have access to a demo of the iconic Warehouse level, available on August 14, 2020.

As the first ever level in THPS history, the Warehouse is as memorable to fans of the franchise almost as much as the Birdman himself, and what better way to celebrate its prestige – and return to glory – through the aptly named Warehouse Demo?

As for your skater, who could be better than Tony Hawk? Yes, you could be skating as Tony Hawk in the Warehouse on August 14…  Just be sure to catch as much air as possible before trying to pull off The 900!
