SSX

SSX is a snowboarding video game in the SSX series of video games from Electronic Arts. It is a reboot of the series.[1] First revealed at the Spike Video Game Awards in 2010 under the working title SSX: Deadly Descents, the game's trailer appeared to show a much darker direction to the series than previous entries,[2] though later footage revealed a return to a lighter tone. SSX includes the use of real locations, rather than the fictional courses of past games.[3][4][5]
