According to Vicarious Visions boss Jennifer Oneal the Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 1 + 2 remaster will not feature microtransactions at launch, but they could come in the future.

In an interview with GameSpot, Oneal said, "Everything that you see at launch is going to be unlocked with gameplay. We're not planning on having monetisation at launch." However, if there is enough player demand, Vicarious Visions might consider releasing more content that needs to be paid for.

The remaster includes both games complete with updated graphics, all the original levels and skaters, new and old tricks and game modes. Create-a-park and create-a-skater both return complete with a number of customisation options that allow players to make their own skateparks and customise the look of their skaters. All content is currently available through playing the game, apart from exclusive items that come with the Deluxe Edtion.
