SSX – First Online Details Announced

August 16, 2011


During the EA Press Conference, they announced the online aspects of SSX.  Todd Batty stated on stage that, ““SSX is going to revolutionize social gaming. We’re gonna make sure it is fun and easy. Even better, there are no lobbies and no need for scheduling.”

“Explore” let’s you play with your friends via ghost tracking.  You will earn money by taking down your friends records that will transfer to your campaign.  You don’t need to be playing online with your friends to actually compete with them however.  If your friend competes with your ghost and fails, you will receive money as well, even if you’re not playing.  You will even receive notifications on Facebook and iPhone when your friend takes down your record.

“Global Events” will allow up to 100,000 riders to compete in a single event and could last from a few minutes to several days.  You can fully customize events with your friends as well.

“RiderNet” is going to be the “Autolog” of SSX.  It will guide you to where your friends are and recommend new friends for you.  It will also keep you connected with your friends by letting you know how they’re doing in the game at all times.  Todd Batty stated that you can even vote friends down if they “annoy you.”

There you have it, a brief touch on the online aspects of SSX.  Excited to take on the mountains with your friends? Check out the trailer and be sure to sound off in the comments below!

    ITs a great series for them to go back to. Can’t remember how long it was since the Xbox game was out but remember it being a lot of fun.

      It truly is a great series to see EA revive. It was a huge hit when it was released as a PS2 launch title and eventually going multiplatform with later titles helped broaden the install base. This title sure is looking very promising and appears to deliver from what I’m hearing!
