A modern day reinvention of one of the most critically acclaimed arcade
franchises of all-time, EA Sports SSX will allow players to experience the
franchise's signature fun and adrenaline-packed gameplay across iconic mountain
ranges all over the world.
Redefining the SSX franchise, SSX will pit riders versus both mountain and man. Players will explore the story of a team who seek to be the first to descend the faces of the most treacherous mountain ranges on the planet. The team will travel the world to face the worst that Mother Nature can throw at them.
From the peaks of the Himalayas, where the air is so thin that riders have to descend through the death zone at breakneck speeds to keep from blacking out, to the solid ice ranges of Antarctica, where a sunlit line is the only survival option when temperatures drop 50 degrees centigrade in the shade.
And the mountain isn't the only danger players will face. In SSX the first goal is to survive. The second, in true SSX fashion, is to look good doing it.
Using NASA topographical satellite data, we've mapped out a Massive World for players to explore. Throughout nine expansive mountain ranges, SSX packs reality-defying gameplay into every run letting players Race, Trick, and Survive down huge open mountains. In addition, Explore, Global Events and RiderNet - SSX's recommendation engine - headline an online feature set that will revolutionize social competition for gamers, making it fun and easy to compete with friends on your schedule.
Conquer the planet's mountains: From Antarctica to Africa and the
Himalayas to the Alps, players will drop into nine of the most iconic mountains
ranges on planet earth. Using NASA topographical data and our proprietary
Mountain Man tool, each of these iconic mountain ranges have then been
exaggerated to deliver a gameplay experience that is true to SSX.
Race it: Way beyond your typical racing experience, SSX allows players to race down huge open mountains with multiple elevations and no invisible walls to hem the player in
Trick it: Defying the laws of reality, SSX will enable players to pull off tricks that would make even the world's greatest snowboarders cringe. Forget a 1260 Double Mctwist, in SSX if you still have both feet strapped to the board while you're spinning 200 feet in the air then you're still a beginner. With a refined trick system and levels designed to deliver trick opportunities at every turn, filling your Tricky meter is a must.
Survive it: A new gameplay element inspired by big mountain snowboarding, SSX asks players to survive some of the most treacherous descents on earth. Challenged by the power of Mother Nature, players will have to survive avalanches, white outs, freezing cold temperatures and much more, as they make their way down these natural boss battles.
Advanced physics: Harnessing the power of the current generation of consoles, SSX introduces a revolutionary physics engine that will allow players to ride and trick off almost anything in the environment, unrestricted by invisible walls and barriers
Upgradeable gear: From boards of varying speeds to wing suits that let you glide for longer distances, upgrade your gear to ride faster, trick higher and survive longer
Characters old and new: Favorite characters, as selected by the fans, make their return to SSX along with new faces that will be joining the franchise
Explore: Explore every drop in the massive world of SSX. Set your fastest time on Race Drops, post your highest score in Trick Drops, and descend as far down the mountain as you can in Survival Drops.
