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.

I sure as shit don't care if they make a PS4. Guess I don't exist. (0 minute ago)
@GriftGFX: Sure, fans want less power... (0 minute ago)
And stop saying that fans are demanding more power. A very vocal segment of forum nerds are demanding more power. You can't speak for everyone. (2 minutes ago)
@droezelke: Bullshit. I'm not the one pretending that I know what's going to happen, nor am I claiming industry expertise. But that's a fact. Nintendo practically abandoned the WiiU out the gate. (2 minutes ago)
@droezelke: third party abandoned the gamecube, even though it had better hardware then the ps2. so there are more factors to it. (4 minutes ago)
@Melmoth: Again, it's not only the power that counts. You need third party support. If you fail to create a platform where third parties trust in, you're doomed. (4 minutes ago)
@GriftGFX: Well that's good that you can charge the console while it's in handheld mode via a cable. (8 minutes ago)
