SSX allows players to experience the franchise’s signature fun and adrenaline-packed gameplay across iconic mountain ranges all over the world. Utilizing NASA topographical satellite data, we’ve mapped out a Massive World for players to explore. Using a Google-Earth inspired interface, navigate throughout nine expansive mountain ranges and regions, each with multiple peaks and multiple drops. SSX packs reality-defying gameplay into every run letting players Race, Trick, and Survive down huge open mountains. In addition, Explore, Global Events and RiderNet – SSX’s recommendation engine – headline an online feature set that will revolutionize social competition for gamers, making it fun and easy to compete with friends on your schedule.
Are you going to make use of backward compatibility by playing SSX on your Xbox One? Personally, I loved pulling off awesome stunts in SSX and I can’t wait to revisit it on Xbox One. Let me know what you think by leaving a comment below.
