We’re just under a month away from the release of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2, a remaster of the original two Tony Hawk games. Recent Tony Hawk games and remasters have not necessarily lived up to the legacy of the original Pro Skater series. There are a lot of unknowns that could be put to rest if people could just get their hands on this game a little early.
People who pre-order the remake digitally will be able to preview the game starting August 14, when the Warehouse level demo releases. However, that means committing money to a remake with dubious predecessors. If you’re not willing to buy before you try, a new opportunity has arrived for you. The promise of a Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 demo has arrived in the strangest of places: a Chipotle burrito.
The Tony Hawk Burrito
People with the Chipotle app on their phone received this notification today:
“Get demo of Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1+2. Order Tony Hawk’s Burrito to claim. First 2k orders receive demo on 8/14. Online only.”

Based on a press release from Chipotle, it appears this demo is the same one accessible through pre-order. Chipotle will have Tony Hawk, fellow skateboarder Jagger Eaton, and actor Finn Wolfhard playing the demo when it releases on August 14 on Chipotle’s twitch channel.
Why Chipotle? Well, a quick search of Mr. Hawk’s Twitter account shows that he’s already a huge fan of the establishment. Chipotle made him a custom burrito card back in 2014, good for a year’s worth of free burritos. Tony Hawk’s titular Chipotle order is even a to-go order, exclusively on the Chipotle app. The order is available until the demo’s release on August 14. Could just be that the game’s soundtrack just happens to lend itself to burrito eating.
For digital pre-orders and burrito lovers with quick fingers, the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 + 2 demo drops August 14. For the rest of us, the game comes out on September 4 on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Microsoft Windows.
