Activision has now verified the previously-teased Nintendo Switch edition of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 +2, along with new versions of the video game for PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series S/X.
The publisher has stated these new PlayStation and Xbox variations will provide “a range of upgrades, such as extremely crisp 120FPS at 1080P, native 4K at 60FPS, spatial audio and more”. They’re likewise not free – you’ll pay a $10 upgrade charge to unlock a “Cross-Gen Deluxe Bundle” unless you own the video game’s Digital Deluxe version currently.Oh, and you can’t update any disc copy on Xbox even if you want to pay. Just on PlayStation. Owners of the Standard Digital Edition on either PS4 or
Xbox One, plus owners of either the Standard or Collector’s Edition on disc on PS4, will need to acquire the$10 Cross-Gen Deluxe Bundle from their console shop to open the game’s new version upon its release. There’s no description for why Xbox owners can not update their disc copies, or
why Activision has actually chosen not to support Microsoft’s Smart Delivery to manage all of this.There’s no apparent method of simply buying a PS5 or Xbox Series X/S digital copy of the video game, either.
The choices listed by Activision are the Cross-Gen Deluxe Bundle Edition, which crams in both last-gen and current-gen variations and a handful of Digital Deluxe edition in-game extras, or a disc-based copy.On Xbox, transferring save information from digital Xbox One versions to a version for Series S/X will simply work automatically.On PlayStation there’s a 10-step process which you can follow through Activision’s FAQ and Create-a-Park save files will not bring over.This is the exact same $10 upgrade charge or pricier cross-gen
package method which Activision formerly utilized with Call of Duty: Black Ops Cold War. 2K kicked off the trend with a comparable surcharge on NBA 2K21.
