The original Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater came out way back in 1999. Now, 21 years later, it’s poised to make a glorious return along with its successor, Pro Skater 2. And based on pre-release footage, it’s set to turn another generation of players into armchair skaters.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 are critically hailed as two of the best games in the series. After 2005’s Tony Hawk’s American Wasteland, pretty much every new title has received mediocre-at-best reviews, with 2015’s Pro Skater 5 sitting at 32/100 on Metacritic. With over a decade of critical flops behind the franchise, it’s exciting to see Activision return to the series’ roots in a new, upgraded way. And in case you were worried—yes, the original soundtracks for both games will be included in the remakes.

The Best Pre-Order Deals for Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2

Although there aren’t any discounts available for the upcoming remaster, there are a few bonuses for folks who pre-order the game before its official launch. Anyone who digitally pre-orders Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 from either the Xbox Marketplace, PlayStation Store or Epic Games Store will gain access to the Warehouse demo when it becomes available (currently, no release date has been announced).

The only other pre-order bonus is offered by GameStop, and comes in the form of a Tony Hawk Mini Fingerboard. It’s a cool incentive, and older gamers might be excited to add a special new board to their Tech Deck collection that’s been gathering dust for the past 20 years.

Oddly enough, the game is not yet available for pre-order on the PlayStation Store. Be sure to check back in the coming weeks when it goes live.

Which Version of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 Should I Pre-Order?

Activision is selling the game in three different editions — Standard, Deluxe, and Collector’s. Here’s how they breakdown:

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 Standard Edition – $39.99

With the Standard Edition you’re entitled to the base game as well as any qualifying pre-order bonuses. If you’re looking for the cheapest way to become a pro skater, this is the version for you.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 Deluxe Edition – $49.99

If you’re willing to part with an extra $10, you’ll receive the base game, any qualifying pre-order bonuses, and the following digital content:

  • “The Ripper” skater from Powell-Peralta
  • Retro outfits for Tony Hawk, Steve Caballero and Rodney Mullen
  • Create-A-Skater retro content

Unless you’re a big fan of retro texture packs, we’d recommend sticking to the Standard Edition.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 Collector’s Edition – $99.99

You’ll get a lot more than digital content if you spring for the Collector’s Edition. Beyond the base game, pre-order bonuses, and the digital content from the Deluxe Edition, you’ll also get a limited-edition, full-sized Birdhouse skateboard deck. It features the beautiful Falcon 2 design along with Tony Hawk’s autograph printed across the top.

Unlike the Deluxe Edition, we think the Collector’s Edition is well worth the money for fans of the series.
