SSX has been on hiatus since the release of SSX Blur didn’t turn heads like EA wanted it to. The franchise, which started as a very arcade-style snowboarding game for PS2, had evolved by then and was trying new things, attempting to feel out its fans’ reactions and desires for future SSX titles. After five years, it looks like EA Vancouver have delivered on the promise to bring back SSX in a BIG way. Since SSX 3, no SSX title has been so familiar at its core, so welcoming of newcomers, and yet so different from the source material. Welcome to team SSX.
