SSX Is Back!


Back in the day, SSX was the best snowboarding game available for the PS2, with SSX Tricky being the highlight of the series in my opinion. During the VGAs, EA showed off the following teaser trailer for the newest installment of the franchise, SSX: Deadly Descents.

Redefining the SSX franchise, SSX: Deadly Descents 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. In SSX: Deadly Descents the first goal is to survive. The second, in true SSX fashion, is to look good doing it.

I loved SSX, so I’m hoping that Deadly Descents returns the franchise to its former glory. No specific date or platform has been revealed.

    Oh man I LOVED the original SSX! SSX Tricky was the highlight for sure. I can still hear the word “TRICKY” being said in my mind when you nail a certain trick correctly. Me and my sister played that soo much. It’s a blast to to play. Easy to control, massive airtime, fun tricks, you get to punch other people. Ahhh, good times.

    What is this? SSX BLACK OPS? Lol. Radical departure from the past cartoony SSX’s. Is it by the team that made SKATE series? If so it’ll be good.

    @derrickgott007 yes I believe the Skate team helped on the PS3 version, and the cartoony arcade gameplay is being replaced by more “realistic” action gameplay.

    I don’t either .. what made SSX fun was that it was arcady and not realistic. If they go the realistic route, that will ruin the spirit of SSX.

    I’m with Tosh, I really hope they don’t go the route of being realistic. I was a huge fan of SSX Tricky and been anxiously waiting the comeback. Please stay arcady!!!
