August 14 is demo day for Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2

Warehouse is the ideal intro to Vicarious Visions’ remaster

Activision slapped a release date on the Warehouse demo for the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 remaster. If you pre-order the game digitally on PS4, Xbox One, or PC (Epic Games Store), you’ll get access to the demo on August 14, 2020, just a few weeks before THPS‘s September 4 launch.

This is going to sound ridiculous – hear me out! – but I’m almost more excited for the Warehouse demo (assuming it’s the full stage) than I am the rest of the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 package. The vibe runs deep. I miss the days when I’d go hard on a demo because, well, that’s just what we did back then.

Will it be as fun as we remember? Will it be better? I’m sticking to my modest expectations.

In a blog post, Activision also revealed eight new skaters that will join the original, aged-up cast of THPS 1 and 2: Lizzie Armanto, Leo Baker, Leticia Bufoni, Riley Hawk, Nyjah Huston, Tyshawn Jones, Aori Nishimura, and Shane O’Neill. Naturally, the newcomers have “their own signature tricks to represent their strengths and accomplishments they have earned so far in their young careers.”

I love this endless summer of demos, even if this one is tied to pre-orders.
