'Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD' (ALL) Revert Pack Announced - Screens

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD is a digital download title that takes the best elements of the classic THPS games and gives them a fresh update to create an all new skateboarding experience.

The single-player campaign in Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD will feature a combination of all-new game modes alongside some of the classics. Fans of Tony Hawk’s Proving Ground will be pleased to see that Hawkman has made a return: a game mode where players fly around levels collecting a series of colored pellets before time runs out (think Pac-Man on skateboards). A brand-new mode to the series is Big Head Survival, where players have a head that’s constantly growing and the only way to stop the swelling is to perform tricks before it gets too big and explodes. Throw in Free Skate and a never before seen list of PROjectives, new, harder objectives unlocked upon completing the game’s original objectives, and there’s plenty to keep gamers coming back for more.

Beyond career mode, online play offers its own assortment of specific game modes. Trick Attack is the classic, two minute battle where the player with the highest score as time runs out reigns victorious. Old favorite Graffiti mode also returns and gives players two minutes to “tag” as many objects as they can by performing tricks on them. Making its online debut is Big Head Elimination, a hilarious game mode where players will have to perform tricks to shrink their ever-growing heads and keep their noggins intact longer than their opponents. Free Skate is another online mode and allows players to skate around openly and practice tricks without any goals or time restraints.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 HD Revert Pack expands on the game’s winning formula with the inclusion of three levels from the original Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 (Airport, Los Angeles, and Canada). Skateboarding legends Steve Caballero and Geoff Rowley make their return to the world of Tony Hawk games and James Hetfield and Robert Trujillo from Metallica make a surprise appearance as playable characters. The Metallica track “All Nightmare Long” has also been added.  But perhaps most importantly for true fans, the Revert move makes it return for mindblowing combos!

There is more good news for Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD fans: Activision has confirmed today that a FREE title update will implement the beloved Revert into the original release as well. That’s right, players will be able to experience their favorite levels like never before and create combos that fans were only able to dream about. Look for this update to hit the week of the DLC release.

“It’s been incredible to watch fans of the original THPS series and new generations of gamers embrace Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD. The Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 HD Revert Pack DLC adds even more of thistimeless gameplay, with the best levels from THPS3,” said Tony Hawk, “We’re adding the Revert as part of our title update in order to thank fans for being so patient. Get ready for some insanely high scores!”

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 HD Revert Pack will be released worldwide on Dec. 4, 2012 for Xbox Live Arcade, PlayStation Network, and Steam for $4.99.

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
