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.

Unless it includes Kojima Productions, the engine and what not. (3 Hours ago)
@alimokrane: Most of those things sound plausible, if SH is truly their franchise now, it would make sense for MS to have Konami pull the demo off PSN, but that amount of money...not plausible. (3 Hours ago)
They said they were still working on it. Sounded like it would be for June, But just now i saw that MS sent me a code for it. Oh yes! (3 Hours ago)
What a nice surprise. Recently the Halo 3 ODST remaster release date was on the Xbox site. 343 then said this was just placeholder, release was for may 29. (3 Hours ago)
If MS indeed buys the IP and gets the original creators on board then it's worth being news. So far, its rumour and speculation...and frankly, I think it's bogus. (6 Hours ago)
@Moonwalker: Will Kojima, DelTorro still be involved? that's the bigger question! (6 Hours ago)
