A stunning reinvention of the classic action snowboarding franchise, SSX: Deadly Descents packs adrenaline into every run with compelling characters and heart-pumping adventures as riders battle the most treacherous and diverse mountain ranges on Earth.
â€œAn entire genre was born from the original SSX a decade ago, and itâ€™s time to reboot one of the most popular franchises of all-time in an unpredictable and unexpected way,â€ said Peter Moore, President, EA SPORTS.
â€œFans have been begging for this since the launch of this generation of consoles, and we have an experience that will be worth the wait. This franchise has always been about racing, tricks, characters and fun â€“ SSX: Deadly Descents will deliver all of that, and more, on a global scale, with rich online experiences, and with the sense of adventure never before imagined on a snowboard.â€
Redefining the SSX franchise, SSX: Deadly Descents will pit riders versus both mountain and man. Players will explore the story of a team who seek to be the first to descend the faces of the most treacherous mountain ranges on the planet. The team will travel the world to face the worst that Mother Nature can throw at them. From the peaks of the Himalayas, where the air is so thin that riders have to descend through the death zone at breakneck speeds to keep from blacking out, to the solid ice ranges of Antarctica, where a sunlit line is the only survival option when temperatures drop 50 degrees centigrade in the shade. And the mountain isnâ€™t the only danger players will face. In SSX: Deadly Descents the first goal is to survive. The second, in true SSX fashion, is to look good doing it.
Also they have unveiled the complete music track listing for EA SPORTS SSXTM, featuring 36 licensed tracks* by established and upcoming artists and ten original tracks composed specifically for the gameâ€™s Deadly Descents. In addition, these original ten tracks â€“ created by The Qemists, Camo & Krooked, Raffertie, and Amon Tobin â€“ are now available for download as part of the â€˜SSXâ€™ soundtrack via iTune
â€œSSX has always been one of EAâ€™s most music intensive, genre diverse and sonically adventurous titles,â€ says Steve Schnur, Worldwide Executive of Music & Music Marketing. â€œThe songs on this new soundtrack cover ground from indie rock, dub step, hip-hop, drum + bass and beyond. As fans of the ultimate snowboarding franchise have come to expect, our artists range from top cutting-edge stars to tomorrowâ€™s hottest underground acts. Ultimately, itâ€™s a soundtrack full of next-level music that is totally ripe for discovery.â€
Gamers will have the ability to upload their own music to SSX to create custom playlists for menu and in-game music. SSX also features a dynamic music remix tool that will automatically remix licensed tracks and custom music based on the playerâ€™s actions and performance in-game.
