Electronic Arts announced today the availability of two new game modes as part of a free title update for SSX.
3-2-1-Go! events are a new way to experience multiplayer in SSX. Unlike the asynchronous competition found in Global Events, this new game mode will allow you to compete with up to five riders simultaneously in fast paced Trick it and Race it heats. The rules for Race Events are simple - the first rider to cross the finish line wins. Trick Events introduces a countdown timer for the entire run, so the winner is determined by who can post the highest score and cross the finish line before the clock hits zero.
One of the most requested modes from the SSX community, Freeride is a single player experience that allows you to endlessly explore every inch of the massive mountains of SSX at your own pace and with your own style. There are no rules, no ghosts, no clock, no score and no other riders.
So far in the SSX game world, players have completed 18 million runs in Global Events earning them more than 3.5 trillion credits, and have uploaded over 10 million ghosts. Starting today, the game has also dropped in price to $39.99 in North America.
SSX was developed by EA Canada and is available for Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
