The lights are on
It may be the middle of summer, but EA still has its mind on shredding gnar pow.
Today the company made available two new SSX game modes via a free download. Fans lobbied heavily for a freeride mode, and EA has granted their wish. The Freeride mode is a single-player experience that allows boarders to rip up every inch of the mountains free of objectives.
The second mode, called 3-2-1-Go!, is an online competition that pits five riders against one another simultaneously in a series Trick It and Race It heats. The winner is determined by who can post the highest score and cross the finish line before time expires.
If you haven't picked up SSX yet, EA also dropped the price to $39.99.

Sounds awesome, might start playing this again.
Alright, now I'm regretting trading this in last month.
All that sounds great!
Love me some SSX. I am just glad that EA is working to return the game to form. I do agree with the need for splitscreen, but this is a good start on the path to making SSX great again.
Great to see them adding additional content to keep players coming back!
Guess it's time to start playing this again. Just make sure this stuff is in the game from the start next time, guys.
Kudos to EA for making this free.
EA is already talking about returning to split screen soon. There have been rumors, so this should keep people happy for a bit. Thanks EA, this game will never leave my house!
Sounds neat now that it's free as well...
Score. I've been waiting for something like this to get me back into SSX mode.
is this fun?
Awesome!!! Well then, it's official. I'll get this :D
wow. as soon as i get rid of it too..........well, actually, got rid of it like two months ago.......
Makes me kinda want the game back
I'm pumped for this now, I played some of the older ones and really enjoyed the freeride mode. Now that we can freeride I might actually play it more often.
Updates like this are the best ones.
