EA has toned down the gritty appearance of new SSX game Deadly Descents by dropping the subtitle.
Gritty SSX reboot Deadly Descents features a rewind button to undo momentary bad boarding.
You can hurtle down and test that on more than 70 mountains spanning 17 regions, including famous peaks in The Alps, Himalayas, Kilimanjaro, Siberia and Caucasus. That's according to an EGM preview of the new game (read by NeoGAF, via VG247).
Mountains are made auto-magically by the sophisticated Deadly Descents engine, which even pulls data for use from Google Earth - oh no it's alive, run! On each of these huge, snow-covered rocks you'll encounter a specific danger. Mentioned are thin air, ice and temperature - all three of which we'd consider common to most high-top pistes.
UPDATE: EA has just confirmed to Eurogamer that SSX: Deadly Descents will be released on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 only.
ORIGINAL STORY: SSX: Deadly Descents uses real world landscapes for mountain ranges – a world first for a snowboarding videogame.
