Online Races Appear Headed to SSX

Despite the excellent social-based online system for SSX fans never stopped clamoring for traditional head-to-head racing. Two new screenshots and a video just released point towards that being a likely addition with upcoming DLC. 

Around three weeks ago EA Sports began to tease – in similar fashion as they did prior to release of the first set of DLC – something in the pipeline for SSX. The initial video led many to believe among new DLC options would be the return of Merqury City and the ability to “freeride”. Now the latest images and video suggest that head-to-head online play is also in the plans. Instead of racing against high scores and their respective “ghosts” users would be facing off against live opponents.

The announcement of DLC for SSX could very well come during the GamesCom conference which begins August 15.

    I’m never going to hold my breath with EA, but the online races, if they really are coming, really should be free DLC.

    I don’t say that as one of the “It should’ve been on the disc” people, but as someone who realizes that very few people are probably still playing this game, so the chances of enough people buying this DLC to make it worth buying for the people that do, is just slightly above zero.

    The only way you’re going to have any chance of people actually getting online to play the content (and thus making it at all worthwhile since it’s multiplayer content) is by making it free. Otherwise, it’s a complete waste for them to even bother making it.

    What “fans” have been “clamoring” for anything with this game? SSX hasn’t been on the Top 100 weekly sales chart for the past 3 months.

    This smells like EA soaking the few suckers who did shell out for this game for even more money when this shit should’ve been free as a reward for spending $60 on a $15 game. FAIL

      Now, what was it Pasta said a few days ago? He doesn’t know why anyone who reads his site, would say that he was in the EA camp? That nobody has ever been more critical of EA than he has?

      Wow.

  • Crimson

    And there you go again Pasta, trying to do a positive write up for another EA turd that never sold well, and acting like the demand for it is still strong. Online races as DLC? Sounds will sound like another poorly thought out scheme to get more money out of the few suckers that bought this game. Since when do you add online play as paid DLC? Once again Pasta, you blatantly prove that you bend over backwards to help turn EA’s peanutty shit into shinola, instead of recognizing this for the scam that it is. Oh, and word on the street is that the game sucks too. You are sooo good at holding EA’s feet to the fire,aren’t ya Pasta? OMG.
