Announcing Classic SSX DLC


After a week of teasing the community by slowly releasing puzzle pieces of a screenshot jam packed full of classic SSX elements, we revealed on Friday that we would be bringing some of that classic, retro fun from previous SSX titles to the newest SSX release with our upcoming DLC.

Today we’re proud to announce that on 05.01.2012 we’ll be releasing the SSX Mt. Eddie & Classic Characters Bundle Pack. Mt. Eddie is a TRICKY inspired, ultra-long mountain that features 9 new Race and Trick drops, and is filled with huge kickers, ridiculous grinds, a Big Air drop, fireworks, and a whole lot more – the classic SSX experience! This DLC bundle pack also comes with 7 retro SSX characters from SSX 3 and Tricky, each with a unique snowboard. And as if that weren’t enough, this pack also includes 3 classic music tracks.

You can even get these elements separately in the SSX Mt. Eddie Pack or the SSX Classic Characters Pack. Leading up to the May 1st launch we’ll be showing off what exactly we’re releasing with character images, gameplay videos and a live Q&A with the development team talking about the new DLC.

Stay tuned to our Facebook page www.facebook.com/easportsssx for the latest news, and read on to see details on the pack breakdowns.

See you on the slopes!

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX It's a meaty campaign too. And you'll probably like the MP anyway. It's a fun throw-away experience. (11 minutes ago)
  • Megido
    Megido @Tinks: The single player campaign is the best raw action FPS gameplay since Painkiller though, it's totally worth it. (28 minutes ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks if the MP ain't good I ain't buyin it (48 minutes ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @KORNdog: the headset itself is selling for almost $600. It's unusually expensive considering there's proper distribution of sony products here in retail. (4 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Melmoth: it seems cheaper to break things down and buy older stick. Like the sqare design camera can be had for less than the new one. And old move controllers less than the ore packaged VR ones. (5 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth lol, PSVR (with camera) will sell for $650 here in Norway. talk about overpricing stuff. the console itself isn't expensive ($350) (5 Hours ago)

    crookedmind ... in Doom 3 I was begging for the game to end after 300 something levels, Doom kept me interested the entire time. They tried to keep to their simple FPS gameplay, and they succeeded. (6 Hours ago)
