Next week is when players will find themselves stepping back in time to take part in the "Mt. Eddie" DLC for SSX
. Inspired by the SSX
games of old, including SSX Tricky
, the DLC will have a feel that is noticeably different to the main game. Big air drops and fireworks will be the name of the game across the nine new trick and race drops on this completely new mountain.
The "Classic Characters" pack will also be released on the same day as the "Mt. Eddie" DLC. This pack includes seven riders, complete with retro outfits, who will be riding down Mt. Eddie. Each rider will also get a unique board, but these are yet to be revealed. Here are the seven riders:EddieEliseKaoriMacMobyPsymonZoe
