Tony Hawk's Pro Skater HD DLC is a bit metal

Metallica’s James Hetfield has a clause written into his contract which famously forbids him from riding a skateboard while the band is on tour. While we can imagine that rule is a little frustrating for the keen skater, Activision may have a solution, featuring the guitarist as part of the Revert Pack downloadable content for Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD, out today for Xbox 360 and PS3.

Of course, there’s more to the pack than just Hetfield. Three levels from the original Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 have also been added – Airport, Los Angeles and Canada – as well as skateboarding legends Steve Caballero and Geoff Rowley. Hetfield’s bandmate Robert Trujillo makes an appearance too, with the band’s track All Nightmare Long added to the soundtrack.

But wait – there’s (even) more to it than that: The Revert move is back, all set to help you create some mindblowing combos. Combine Revert and Manual and gain some ludicrously high scores – all with a significantly reduced risk of injuring your guitar-playing arm.

The Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 3 HD Revert Pack is out today for Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater HD via Xbox Live Arcade and PlayStation Network – if you want it on Steam, you’ll have to wait “a couple days”.
