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.

@Moonwalker: I really like it too. Time to check out the 1996 movie from the Cohen bros as well (4 minutes ago)
I just saw the first episode of Fargo. Awesome! Billy Bob Thornton and Martin Freeman are fantastic in this. Man i hope it stays this strong. (2 Hours ago)
And then on top of that, the races ALWAYS have a checkpoint that is low to the ground...guess what that does without fail? It makes you land. I was intending to platinum this game, but fuck it. (4 Hours ago)
Why, if fucks name would you use digital inputs (X to go up, O to go down) when you have a friggin analog stick that can do it far more accurately. (4 Hours ago)
Lego marvel has quite possibly the most frustrating, mind bogglingly stupid flying controls in the history of video games. (4 Hours ago)
Origins, Legends, DK Tropical Freeze and 3D World are probably the best platforming had to offer in a while. (6 Hours ago)
@nostradamus: It is indeed damn good. I love to 100% all the levels, i had that with Origins too. Some of those levels are really unique too. Looks great too and music as well. Great stuff. (6 Hours ago)
