The $5 DLC arriving roughly a month after the launch of Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD
will bring back the revert, a kind of bridge move introduced in Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 3
that allows players to chain together combos they couldn't otherwise in previous games. Activision confirmed the news to Joystiq at a recent event.
There's one catch: revert will only work within the DLC, and will not be a compatible mechanic in the core Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD
, brah. An Activision rep told us this is because "reverts were introduced in THPS3
and the levels were designed accordingly."
Yesterday, Activision told us Airport will be one of the three THPS3 levels
to make the cut in the DLC, and that several more skate pros will be added as part of the $5 DLC pack. Above you can see the very first screen from the remade Airport map.
