SSX Getting Two DLC Packs May 1
Don’t put away your SSX discs just yet kids, as it seems that the newly released snowboarding hit from EA Sports will be getting its first slice of downloadable content soon.
On May 1, two new DLC packs will be available on Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network, both inspired by SSX Tricky, a past title that’s considered an influencer of the base game itself.
The first bundle is the Mt. Eddie pack, an SSX Tricky stylized descent with a total of nine new drops for you to grind down, all with their own race and trick tracks to conquer. Additionally, a bunch of new music tracks will be added, with two of them featured in a previous SSX game.
I’m saying it right now – if the original Run DMC song “It’s Tricky” is included in that list, that’s worth the price of the DLC alone. I don’t care that there’s a dub step version bro, I want my Run DMC.
Second, we have the Classic Characters pack, which offers seven playable characters from past SSX titles, each with his or her own snowboard and clothing options. For those of you who like video games, snowboarding, AND dress-up dolls – this pack is tailor-made for you.
Each DLC pack goes for $5.99 individually, but you can get both as part of a discounted digital bundle for $7.99.
