The Rockies And New Zealand Take Center Stage In SSX Demo

 

SSX Fans Can Challenge Their Friends’ Best Times & Scores in the Online & RiderNet Enabled Demo

The SSX demo is out on XBL Worldwide and PSN in North America and we’re so excited to finally get it into your hands!

What game mode does the demo feature?

The online & RiderNet enabled demo allows SSX fans to get a taste of one of the modes in the SSX online feature set – Explore Mode. Mimicking the Explore experience that will be in the full game, as players post race times and trick scores in the demo, ghosts of those runs will be uploaded to the SSX server. These ghosts are exact replicas of a player’s run, from the line that they took, to the tricks that they performed. RiderNet will recommend challenges as players take on their friends’ ghosts or let their own ghosts chalk up wins and losses, even while they’re away from their console.

What events can I play in the demo?

  • Two SSX tutorials featured in the full game: Skyboarding – an aerial tutorial where you learn the basic aerial controls and grabs as you freefall; and Ground Tutorial – a track designed to whip you into shape as you master jumps, grinds, spins, boost, combos and everything else that you’ll need as you attempt to defy reality!

  • Two unique events for SSX fans to experience: JT2, a race event in the Rockies and Bulldog, a trick event in New Zealand.

Who do I get to play as?

You’ll start off playing as Zoe Payne, but if you ‘Refer a Friend’ to the demo you’ll unlock Mac Fraser as a playable character.

The demo will be available until March 20, 2012 so be sure to download as soon as it’s available.
