SSX Brings Social to the Slopes

Forget the headache of piling into a van and renting a cabin because SSX makes it a piece of cake to hit the slopes with your friends — and rivals. Straight from GamesCom is a brand new video showcasing some of the amazing new online features we can look forward to in SSX.

In bringing the SSX series to the current generation, EA SPORTS has added sweeping social additions like ghosts, Ridernet, and global events supporting up to 100,000 simultaneous players live. Check them out along with new gameplay footage in the new video!

SSX marks the long-awaited return of the pre-eminent snowboarding franchise to consoles. In addition to the over-the-top, exhilarating action the series is known for, players can conquer real-world mountains — courtesy NASA geotagging data — to create an amazing open world experience. Pre-order your copy on Origin and get ready to carve up the mountainside starting January 3, 2012.
