E3 2011: SSX Shows Off at EA Press Conference

on June 6, 2011 4:02 PM

Before EA Sports’ Peter Moore took to the stage, we saw a CGI trailer of the upcoming SSX. The trick-filled trailer looked great, but it was the details that came afterward that were truly exciting.The franchise, which is being reinvented, lets you “own the planet,” according to Moore. He also described a “massive open world.” That’s right – open world snowboarding.

By using NASA satellite data, EA Sports has scanned the planet and promises every major mountain range in the world will be available.

Moore also discussed the 3 gameplay modes – Race It, Trick It, and Survive It.

Those looking for character information should keep their eyes peeled on the game’s Facebook page.

SSX releases in January 2012.
