Redefining the SSX franchise, SSX: Deadly Descents will pit riders versus both mountain and man. Players will explore the story of a team who seek to be the first to descend the faces of the most treacherous mountain ranges on the planet.
The team will travel the world to face the worst that Mother Nature can throw at them. From the peaks of the Himalayas, where the air is so thin that riders have to descend through the death zone at breakneck speeds to keep from blacking out, to the solid ice ranges of Antarctica, where a sunlit line is the only survival option when temperatures drop 50 degrees centigrade in the shade. And the mountain isn't the only danger players will face. In SSX: Deadly Descents the first goal is to survive. The second, in true SSX fashion, is to look good doing it.
•Battle the Elements - The mountain and your competition aren't your most formidable foes. Survive in the harshest climates against hurricane force winds and zero-visibility snow storms, based on the deadliest elements of real world locations.
•Survival Gear that Matters - If you want to stand a chance of surviving a Deadly Descent alive, you're going to need the right gear and you're going to need to know how and when to use it.
