SSX: “Wingsuit Race” trailer finally makes good on Deadly Descents' initial promise

EA's been working overtime making sure you know how far SSX has come since that initial trailer. While the project famously started life as a grim 'n' gritty reboot, subsequent glimpses are far more in keeping with the series' outlandishly fun pedigree. Now the company's revealed what looks like one of the most interesting features yet... which just happens to be the very innovation teased by that first, notorious clip. That's right: it's squirrel-racin' time!

SSX can presumably do what it damn well pleases by this point, having just treated you to a demo. Not to mention revealing locations like Siberia, Patagonia and – yes! – New Zealand's most prominent appearance in a videogame since Taito had a go some 24 years ago. Not that your current correspondent's been keeping track, or anything. Anyway, look forward to the game's full release next week, at which time those squirrel-suits will be yours for the unlocking.

    That. Looks. AWESOME!!!! I love the demo that came out this week but there's not really much need for the wingsuit on the runs there. So glad they included "Classic" controls as well. The new controls work ok but I much prefer the ones I've been playing for ten years or so. See you all on the slopes next week!

    I like that even though using the wingsuit preserves your "Super Tricky" level, you don't actually gain extra points from using it. That way online players won't be able to spam it in order to boost their score.
