mac slide SSX update brings two new game modes

Early this year EA brought back a series that had been a fan favorite of the previous generation, SSX.  It brought back several of the original characters, but the Deadly Descents were definitely polarizing.  Now about five and a half months later they are introducing two new game modes to SSX.  The best part?  The new update is free.

Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ: EA) announced today the availability of two new game modes as part of a free title update* for EA SPORTS™ SSX™. Building upon the successful re-launch of theSSX franchise with 25 review scores of 9/10 or higher, 3-2-1-Go! Events and Freeride bring a new multiplayer and single player experience to SSX. The SSX title update is now available on Xbox LIVE® and PlayStation®Network.

One mode lets you race against others simultaneously, while the other lets you check out the stages however you want.  If you have SSX, now would be a good time to revisit the game.  If you haven’t checked it out and were a fan of SSX Tricky or SSX3, then now might be a good time to see what you’ve been missing.
