Well, it’s not SSX Tricky, I’ll tell you that much. In fact, it looks a lot different than the original XBOX game. It seems as if it will be taking a more realistic approach to snowboarding and it’s actually looking really good. I’m pretty impressed with the trailer. While I was hoping for something more like SSX Tricky, which I still think is the best game in the SSX series, I think I just may be surprised once I get a chance to play this. Looks like it could be a lot of fun. According to the press release:
Redefining the SSX franchise, SSX: Deadly Descents will pit riders versus both mountain and man. Players will explore the story of a team who seek to be the first to descend the faces of the most treacherous mountain ranges on the planet. The team will travel the world to face the worst that Mother Nature can throw at them. From the peaks of the Himalayas, where the air is so thin that riders have to descend through the death zone at breakneck speeds to keep from blacking out, to the solid ice ranges of Antarctica, where a sunlit line is the only survival option when temperatures drop 50 degrees centigrade in the shade. And the mountain isn’t the only danger players will face. In SSX: Deadly Descents the first goal is to survive. The second, in true SSX fashion, is to look good doing it.
Anyways check out the trailer on YouTube. It’s just CG footage but hey, it’s better than nothing.
