SSX3 details and shots released

Snow time.

EA has finally issued a press release laden with details on SSX3, the follow-up to our favourite snowboarding game, SSX Tricky. Instead of obvious courses with an intricate network of trick-oriented shortcuts, developer EA Canada is aiming for a completely free roaming, seamless game this time out, jamming a lot more onto the slopes of the colossal mountains of old.

Of course we can expect new events, courses, tricks, riders and shortcuts, too, not to mention hidden collectibles and bigger-than-ever trick combos. There will even be a series of more than 100 unique "Big Challenges" to complete.

Obviously a lot of work is also expected to go into the visual side of things, with "snow that sparkles and blows in the wind and realistic character shadowing", and the soundtrack will include X-Ecutioners (who?), Felix Da Housecat, Queens of the Stone Age, N.E.R.D. and others to be announced.

SSX3 is due out on PS2, Cube and Xbox in late 2003.
