Crash Bandicoot Gear Comes To Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 + 2, And It's All Free
Activision's Crash and Tony Hawk franchises are crossing over for the first time.
Two of Activision's most popular franchises are coming together for the first time. The publisher has announced a new crossover event of sorts that sees Crash Bandicoot-themed gear come to Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2.
On November 6, new Bandicoot-themed gear is coming to the skateboarding game. Everyone who already purchased the skateboarding game will get 13 new Crash items for the Create-A-Skater mode. This includes nine shirts, three hats, and one skateboard deck. You can see a few of these in the images below.
November 6 also marks the launch of the Birdman Pack, which will benefit Tony Hawk's The Skatepark Project charity--this was formerly known as the Tony Hawk Foundation. The DLC bundle comes with new boards from Birdhouse and Powell-Peralta, along with a new TSP deck made specifically for this campaign. The items, of which there are 10 in all, can be used in the Create-A-Skater mode.
The bundle costs $5 and all proceeds will go to The Skatepark Project, which helps build public skateparks for kids. The charity drive ends on December 31, 2021, or when it reaches $500,000.
The November 6 update for Pro Skater 1 + 2 also introduces new challenges for multiplayer, Create-A-Park, and Combo Practice, while the multiplayer playlists are being updated for "better randomization" of parks and scores for Jams and Competitive modes.
Finally, a new feature called Solo Tours is being added to Pro Skater 1 + 2. "Players will be able to replay Tours mode with individual skaters allowing them to max out stats with each of their favorite pros. At the start of each Solo Tour, all Goals and Medals will be reset, while current Tours mode will move to Crew Tours so previous progress will not be lost," Activision said.
