The PC version of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 can finally be played without an internet connection, but there is a catch

More than three years after its release, the PC version of the skate collection Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 has finally made its way to the EGS, and a recently released patch for the Steam version brought more good news. However, with reservations.

Activision (the game’s publisher) has not specified why Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2’s constant connection requirement was removed from the Steam Deck version, which has left some Windows and Linux users unhappy.

However, gamers have already found it Workaround Run Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 offline without Steam Deck. To do this, in the game properties (opened through the Steam library), you need to set the following startup parameters:

  • Linux – Steamdeck=1 %command%;
  • Windows – cmd /c “set steamdeck=1 && %command%”.

We would like to remind you that the collection is a remake of the first two parts of the cult skating series Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater. Vicarious Visions, which was acquired by Blizzard Entertainment in 2022, was responsible for the development.

Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 is available on PC (steam, EGS), PS4 and Xbox One, PS5, Xbox Series X and S and Nintendo Switch. Activision had plans for Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 + 4, but it didn’t work out.
