One of the most exciting things about the release of EA Sports SSX earlier this year was that it marked the return of a fan favorite series from the last generation of consoles. But just in case reliving some of the snowboarding action of the early 2000′s wasn’t nostalgic enough for you, EA Sports has released two new sets of DLC featuring content from previous games in the series including SSX Tricky and SSX 3. The DLC will allow players to enjoy old school songs and characters, as well as a new course inspired by the series’ roots. Read on for more details.
