The next BIG thing

EA launches FreekStyle

EA Sports BIG have taken the wraps off their next big PlayStation 2 project after SSX Tricky, and naturally they are sticking to what they are best at: freestylin'. FreekStyle is "the most dangerous motocross game around", daring you to "harness the power of your bike while pulling off sick stunts in insane, over the top worlds." SSX fans rejoice; it looks as though the overpopulated motocross genre is going to get the BIG treatment. For those of you who haven't kept up with the SSX phenomenon; EA Sports BIG is a Canada-based team that has taken the snowboarding genre to new heights, with virtually every competitor's product now resembling SSX / Tricky in some way or other. EA expect FreekStyle to have the same effect, this time on the motocross genre. Rugged forest floors replace the snow-capped mountains, but hitting massive jumps at more than 70mph will still be the order of the day, "hitting a 40 foot jump at the ledge of a 200 foot cliff and pulling off a Superman Seat grab, a Saran-wrap and 360 all before you land." This time it's all about being fearless, and like Tricky before it, FreekStyle will feature eight colourful characters and a gentle reward structure. FreekStyle will arrive on PlayStation 2 in the Spring. In the meantime, check out our selection of screenshots. Related Feature - FreekStyle screenshots
