New SSX Could be Announced at VGAs

Posted December 8th, 2010 at 9:00 am

With the VGAs coming up on Saturday rumors are flying as to new game announcements that will be made. It has looked like a new NFL licensed game could be amongst them based on the reveals trailer, with that possibly being a remake of NFL Blitz. Now though there are signs of a different game emerging from the awards show.

Kotaku went through and detailed numerous indications that a new SSX game is in the works. Domains having been registered, online surveys, and their own source. It would appear to be shaping up as a pretty extreme experience and utilize a right analog heavy control system similar to that found in the Skate series.

In a blog posting yesterday EA Sports president Peter Moore referred to an announcement of an “obscure new title” which links to a quick preview of “The Planet”. The preview flies over snow covered mountains and includes a helicopter which could be used to drop players into locations unreachable otherwise. This all would probably fit with the hints being made as SSX has proven to have a dedicated base of fans and the last game in the series was released in 2007.
