Image During the Gamescom 2011 EA Press Conference, the first details about the online experience for the new SSX were announced. Player ghosts, Global Events and Ridernet - SSX's Autolog powered social network - were some of features discussed.

These, explained by Todd Batty, along with the new trailer, can be found after the break.


Todd Batty: “SSX is going to revolutionize social gaming. We’re gonna make sure it is fun and easy. Even better, there are no lobbies and no need for scheduling.

Today we’re going to talk about two key parts of our multiplayer modes: Explore and Global Events.

In explore you can drop into any of the planet’s iconic mountain ranges. Each time you have a personal best we’re going to upload a ghost of your run that lives permanently and that all your friends can see, even when you’re away from your console.

As you take down your friends’ ghosts and move up the leader board you get money – and if you’re friend tries to take down your ghost and fails … you guessed it, you win money also, even if you are offline.

Global events – up to 100,000 players live at once. Global events also includes Customizable events – fully customizable events you can set up just for you and your friends. Instead of riding against ghosts of past runs, now you’re competing against other players around the world in real-time.

We’re also excited today to announce Ridernet. The same Autolog engine that powered online play in NFS: Hot Pursuit last year. Ridernet will allow you to “like” your favorite drops and it will reccomend new drops for you to try. It will also keep you connected with your friends and let you know how they’re performing in the game at all times.

A new SSX trailer was also released to go alongside the newly announced features:

I've got my XBL friend's list nearly full so excuse me if I don't accept your FR. Currently I'm only playing on the Xbox 360.
