The Belgian and Swedish team FoamPunch is super excited to announce that their snowboarding game Shredders is coming to Xbox Series X|S this December, and launching day one on Xbox Game Pass.
As a Belgian myself and knowing some of the people involved with this project, I’ve been massively excited to see more details dropping on socials these past few weeks and seeing their trailer in the Xbox + Bethesda E3 2021 showcase has been nothing short of exhilarating.
In Shredders you’ll break into the snowboarding event of the year to pull off one of the most insane tricks imaginable, all for the hope of scoring a wildcard entry to an exclusive invitational. To prove you’re up to the challenge, master the art of park riding, backcountry, rails and massive kickers and earn your place in the world of snowboarding.
Shredders has powder so fresh you’ll lose yourself for hours carving down mountains. Tweak your grabs, bend your board, and butter like the very best. With the help of world-class pro-riders soon to be announced, go beyond the boundaries of what was thought possible.
“We built a snowboarding experience that allows you to define your own style. In snowboarding there are so many incredible ways to do a simple 180 and Shredders gives you that level of control. Carving, buttering, and the sensation of floating on fresh powder all feels amazing.”
(Dirk Van Welden — project lead)
“In the same spirit as snowboarding, we want to give players freedom and agency over their ride. It should be rewarding to explore the mechanics and find your own style. That sort of exploration has always drawn me into gaming.”
(Marcus Forsmoo — tech lead)
Shredders is full of hand sculpted parks, urban environments and off-piste adventures. An open world just waiting to be shredded. Almost every other rider you see on the mountain is a real rider playing right there with you. Compete, shred together with friends, or take on a journey of your own.
Shredders takes inspiration from a whole bunch of awesome snowboarding films, the Amped games from the original Xbox, and the snowboarding heroes on Instagram. Shredders is a project fed by passion and built to shine on Xbox Series X|S.
Shredders is made by riders, for riders, and is coming first to Xbox Series X|S in December 2021, and will be released day one to Xbox Game Pass.
