For the past few months the EA SPORTS SSX team has been working on something special, an update to the game that adds two complete new game modes along with some much requested fixes. Using feedback from fans like you the development team focused in on making SSX even better.
Congratulations to the entire SSX team for picking up Best Individual Sports Game at the 2012 Video Game Awards. Everyone here at EA SPORTS is incredibly proud of SSX’s achievements this year, and we’d like to thank our great community of fans who have been along for the ride.
With your feedback in mind, the SSX dev team worked hard on the upcoming Mt. Eddie & Classic Characters DLC to bring back the classic SSX experience. They wanted the DLC to have the same feel as classic SSX titles – hence, Mt. Eddie was born; an SSX TRICKY inspired mountain with billboards and fireworks and more.
At the start of the SSX campaign, we sought out the most passionate, die-hard, long-time SSX fans we could find. We scoured forums, fan sites and even had a first-look contest that allowed fans from all over the world to come to the EA Canada studio in Burnaby, British Columbia to get an early look at SSX. We knew that if we could show these fans, our biggest and most scrutinizing critics that SSX was back, then we’d have a game that was worthy of the franchise name.
SSX fans have shown their love for the game’s rich history. We love that history as well, and that’s why we’re excited to be bringing some classic elements to the newest SSX release in our upcoming DLC release. We’ll be letting you know more on Monday, but for now we’re off to launch some fireworks in celebration.
