ACTIVISION’S UPCOMING TONY HAWK’S PRO SKATER HD IS CLASSIC SKATEBOARDING GAMEPLAY, UPGRADED FOR TODAY
The Best Of The First Two THPS Videogames in One Digital Title
Santa Monica, CA – December 12, 2011 – Ridiculously high scoring trick combos return to videogame consoles this summer in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD, today announced Activision Publishing Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Activision Blizzard Inc., (Nasdaq: ATVI). Developed by Robomodo, this digital title takes the best elements of the classic THPS games and gives them a fresh update to create an all new skateboarding experience. The game will be available only on leading consoles’ networks for about $15.
“We’re going back to the core of what made the original Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater games so popular, while leveraging today’s console power and online capabilities,” said Tony Hawk. “We've updated many elements to reflect today’s skateboarding scene as well. Long-time fans of the series will appreciate the huge amount of polished content at a very low price."
Tapping into fans’ muscle memories, the gameplay in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD returns to controllers and focuses on the satisfaction of linking sick tricks for maximum points. Combining sharp visuals with the best controls ever in a Tony Hawk game, the feel is cutting edge yet timeless. Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD features an eclectic group of today’s skateboarding pros, including Nyjah Huston, Chris Cole, Eric Koston, Andrew Reynolds, Rodney Mullen, Lyn-z Adams Hawkins (Pastrana), Riley Hawk, and, of course, Tony Hawk himself.
“Tony is not only a legend in the skateboarding world, he’s an American icon that has had a major impact on videogames. We couldn’t be happier to be working with him again,” said David Oxford, Activision Publishing. “Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD just feels right – we’re simply giving fans what they’ve been clamoring for.”

@hotkirby: on pc i rarely got invaded, the only time i recall it was blightown and i hid myself for almost 1 hour and the invader baby quit himself out of boredom. never saw DS as a pvp game, or (38 minutes ago)
oh, and a resolution swap technique (at least how it was on 360, on ps3 it was way agressive) to maintain fps. now that i think of it, it kinda could work. (42 minutes ago)
60fps in mind, pre-baked lighting that looks good for what it is, and awesome tools to implement level/art design like in Rage... it was linear as shit, but all the halways felt unique. but thats me. (45 minutes ago)
@HR2: From Soft is well known for not using engine of third parties that i know of. so no luck on that or cryengine. Best engine for DS would be something like IDTech. looking at the new Wolfenstein. (46 minutes ago)
