Earlier this week EA Sports launched a new and free update for SSX. Part of the update brings two new modes of play to the game;
3-2-1-Go! Events are a completely 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 3-2-1-Go! Race Events are simple – the first rider to cross the finish line wins. 3-2-1-Go! 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. In Freeride, it is just you, the mountain and your music.
And just for fun here are some neat stats about the game so far:
· Players have dropped into the world of SSXmore than 200 million times
· Players have completed 18 million runs in Global Events earning them more than 3.5 trillion credits
· Players have uploaded over 10 million ghosts that are currently stored on the SSX servers
· Players have earned over 67 billion credits from hiding geotags
