Discover a colossal mountain where gamers will be immersed in a free-roaming snow paradise in an all-new SSX experience, SSX 3. A unique ascent awaits you, and when you reach the summit the ultimate ride is available: an open mountain to board, explore, and compete on. The mountain presents gamers with a world of open vistas and fresh powder for open exploration, filled with trick venues, rail parks, racecourses, and unbelievable half-pipes with new tricks to master and new competitors to take on.
The SSX team has spent almost two years working to improve the core experience by adding loads of new experiences and ways to play. Buckle up your bindings as a returning veteran or keen new rookie. Get ready to take on other riders-and the biggest challenge yet-the Mountain itself.
Open Mountain Environment: Get dropped onto the lower peak of the biggest mountain you've ever seen. You'll seamlessly board from one awesome area to the next-entering competitions, taking on Big Challenges, and discovering hidden collectables. Master the Challenges on all three peaks in your quest to conquer the Mountain… and make it your own.
Characters: Four new rivals join six returning characters. Mac, Elise, Zoe, Moby, Psymon, and Kaori are back, and they're joined by the crazy Swede Viggo, mountain man Nate, 12 year-old phenom Griff, and the talented and sexy Allegra.
Rich, Natural Graphics: SSX3 boasts amazing graphics that show details like incredibly realistic shadows and snow that sparkles, reflects light, and even blows in the wind. These are just some of the rich environmental details created by an OSCAR® nominated Hollywood visual effects designer. The amazing visuals work together to totally immerse the user in the SSX 3 world.
More Tricks: The tricks are completely blown out in SSX3. There is a collection of new Uber Tricks where users can combo and hold. Not only will SSX3 have the addition of specific Uber tricks on rails, users will even be able to perform hand plants. With the new board press tricks, gamers can extend a combo string-forever!
Soundtrack: An adrenaline charged soundtrack promises to be one of the game industry's best yet, featuring a broad range of music from such artists as the X-Ecutioners, Felix Da Housecat, Queens of the Stone Age, N.E.R.D., and many more.
Play How You Want: With SSX 3, users will be able to choose how they play-and how they progress. Users will have the option of competing in a variety of events (Race, Big Air, Slope Style, and Super Pipe) or at the last minute opting to take off and freeride.
Big Challenges: Take on any number of unique challenges as you explore the mountain world. Grind billboards, board press logs, even hand plant the fence line. There are over 100 challenges to board again and again.
Customization and Rewards: SSX 3 has also expanded the character customization and rewards system. You'll earn medals and trophies to fill up your trophy room, level up your riders' abilities through a deeper attribute system, and even rename the peaks as you master them. Along with fully customizable characters (including cheats to equip them with over the top gear and attributes) you can customize your personal play list and much more.
