EA has today released the demo for EA Sports SSX on both Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network in North America.
The demo, which features online play, will let gamers experience a race event in the Rockies and a trick event in New Zealand. The demo also lets players try out the game’s main mode – Explore.
Fans should be aware that the demo will only be available for download until March 20. The game is set for a Feb. 28 release in North America and March 2 in the rest of the world.
“When crafting the online experience for this new SSX, we wanted to design something that took into account people’s busy schedules and addressed the issue of not always having friends to play online with you at the same time” says Todd Batty, Creative Director, SSX. “The Explore game mode, which allows you to challenge your friends’ times and scores on your own schedule, is one part of that online design. The other half of our online design, Global Events, is built around the idea of constant ongoing live tournaments against real people in real-time, with the added flexibility of letting you drop in and out at your convenience. We think that when any gamer gets their hands on SSX they are going to have a lot of fun with our modern take on this classic franchise.”
