SSX gets an update from EA with the latest in their snowboarding line of games. Despite the name try not to confuse SSX with the original under the same name from 2000. The newest SSX will feature real world mountains from the Alps to the Himalayans without forgoing any of the over-the-top and colorful characters or gameplay that makes SSX the fun series it is. The races should be more open-world and less linear than previous titles with mountains that are quite extensive. SSX vets like Mac and Elise will be returning to the series along with new characters. EA is promoting a new feature called Ridernet that connects players for online competitions. From racing to trick scoring they claim that you could face up to 100,000 online at any given time using Ridernet.
SSX will be out in January 2012 for Xbox 360 and Playstation 3.
