There’s a new Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 + 2 Remastered box art that seemingly confirms that players will need an online download in order to play the title.
Found on the AU version of EB Games, the box art for Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 + 2 remaster confirms that, in the least, physical buyers will be required to have online in order to play the title due to a required download. You can see the box art down below.
And for those thinking that this could possibly just be a mistake on the retailer part, a user over on Reddit who happened to get the title early in his region posted an image of the case, which is also sporting the online requirement.
We aren’t sure if this will be an always online title or if it is going the route of the Spyro Trilogy Remaster where the online was required to download the full title. It’s an odd decision on Activision part if we do say so ourselves as the Spyro Trilogy was roughly 30GB, something that could have easily been put on the disc at launch. We can’t imagine the Tony Hawk remasters being larger than what current blu-ray discs support. This most likely is some sort of online activation.
Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 Remastered will be releasing on PC, Xbox One, and PS4 September 4. Stay tuned to our review hitting the site soon.
