Launch initially planned without microtransactions


from Dominik Zwingmann
At the launch of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2, players will initially encounter no microtransactions. The developers revealed this in an interview. However, it is possible that some in-game purchases will be added some time after the release. Jen Oneal of Vicarious Visions also suggested possible crossplay functions for the future.

On September 4, 2020, Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2, a new edition of the two classics for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, will be released. Even before the release, the creators revealed that the title would initially not have any microtransactions at launch. A new interview with Jen Oneal (boss of developer Vicarious Visions), however, shows that this could change in the months after the release.

If Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 is actually retrofitted with microtransactions, the title would not be the only one from Publisher Activision's portfolio that is only equipped with additional in-game purchases weeks and months after the launch. Corresponding microtransactions were also added later to the last branches of Call of Duty. A similar thing happened with the new edition of Activision's Crash Team Racing Nitro-Fueled.

Vicarious Visions also seems to be keeping an eye on Crossplay. Jen Oneal didn't want to confirm anything here yet, but hinted that there would be more info when the time came. Call of Duty: Modern Warfare and the Battle Royale Spinoff Warzone from Activision have already implemented Crossplay. Just today we reported on the soundtrack of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2, which you can already listen to as a playlist on Spotify.
