Starting on Friday, fans of Tony Hawk Pro Skater will be able to hop into a demo for the upcoming remaster of the first two games. Here’s what you need to know about what’s included, how to get the demo, and more.

When Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 & 2 was announced during the Summer Games Fest in May 2020, many long time fans of the franchise were extremely excited. Players would finally be able to revisit the first two games in the series remastered for modern consoles. Basically, it was a dream come true.

Fans were even more excited when they found out that a demo for the remaster would be coming sometime before the game’s full release. Putting the demo out there, no matter how big or small it is, is an easy way to tide fans over until the game’s full release.

Now, we know that the demo is releasing on Friday, August 14, 2020, and Activision has revealed a slew of new details about the demo itself.

Activision
Activision has confirmed that the Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 + 2 demo will come with a single level and four songs.

What’s included with the demo?

As expected, the demo is a very limited experience when compared to the full game, as it’s comprised of just a two-minute Single Session set in The Warehouse level from the original Tony Hawk Pro Skater.

In addition to the single level, players will also have a sparse soundtrack to listen to while playing, with only four tracks available in total.

How do I take part in the demo?

Unfortunately, this is where the bad news comes in. Right now, you can’t just go onto your platform of choice and download it. Currently, the only foolproof way to guarantee yourself the demo is by pre-ordering the game digitally.

It’s also worth pointing out that if you were one of the first 2,000 people to order the Tony Hawk Burrito from Chipotle (yes, you read that right) on Monday, August 10, 2020, you’re eligible to receive a code for the demo, regardless of pre-order. Unfortunately, the 2,000 codes are almost certainly sold out at this point, so unless you already bought it, you’re out of luck in that regard.

Activision
Players who pre-ordered digitally on PS4 and Xbox One can pre-download the demo right now.

Can I pre-load the demo?

If you pre-ordered the game digitally, the demo is available for pre-download right now. All you have to do is go into your library on PS4 or search for it on the Xbox One store and you should be able to start the download.

Unfortunately, pre-loading doesn’t seem to be an option for PC players. You’ll, of course, still receive access to the demo when it goes live on August 14, 2020, at 8 am PDT (11 am EDT), but you’ll have to wait until then to download it.

If I have the game pre-ordered physically, how can I get access to the demo?

Unfortunately, as of the time of this writing, if you pre-ordered the game from retail stores like GameStop, Walmart, etc. you won’t get access to the Warehouse demo at all.

This is surely disappointing to some people, as many fans still buy games physically, and there’s really no clear reason why Activision has this restriction.

Even though the demo is only restricted to digital pre-orders right now, here’s hoping that the Warehouse demo will be opened up to all players in the near future.

Tony Hawk Pro Skater 1 + 2 comes to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Epic Games Store on September 4, 2020.

Valorant Act 3 Battlepass Epilogue Chapter: Rewards & how to complete

Valorant’s Act 3 Battlepass includes a new Epilogue Chapter where you can earn bonus rewards. Here is a look at the bonus rewards and how you can add them to your collection. 

Act 3 in Valorant is in full swing and Riot is giving players more ways to earn rewards with the Act 3 Battlepass. Like with all Battlepass rewards, these items will be exclusive and you won’t be able to get them any other way. Here are the rewards and how you can earn them.

How to get to the Epilogue Chapter

The Battlepass currently consists of 10 chapters with five tiers per chapter. You can begin the Act 3 epilogue chapter after you complete the first 50 tiers of the Battlepass. There are two ways to complete the Battlepass:

  1. Gain tiers by getting experience from playing and completing daily and weekly quests.
  2. Pay 300 Valorant Points to gain an individual tier.

If you want to complete the Battlepass and reach the epilogue without paying real money for Valorant Points, you will need to play a lot.

Completing the daily quests every day is extremely important, as you can earn 4,000 extra experience per day doing this. Getting the weekly quests done is absolutely mandatory, as this is where you get a huge bulk of your experience.

Rewards

Like the other chapters, the Epilogue Chapter has five tiers, each with an exclusive reward. Here they are:

  1. Discotech Gun Buddy
  2. 10 Radianite Points
  3. 10 Radianite Points
  4. 10 Radianite Points
  5. Versus // Vandal + Phantom Card

Riot Games
Epilogue Chapter Rewards

You will only be able to earn these rewards through experience and you cannot pay Valorant Points for them. This means that you will need to get them started as soon as possible to ensure you have time to finish them up.

You aren’t in too much of a rush yet, however, as Act 3 in Valorant doesn’t end for another 77 days. This should give you plenty of time to get through the Battlepass and get the rewards. Just remember to keep grinding away those games and quests each day to get as much experience as you can.
