EA Ships SSX Tricky

REDWOOD CITY, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dec. 11, 2001 --Lace up your boots, grab your snowboard and get ready for an adrenaline rush as EA (Nasdaq:ERTS - news) announced today it's shipping SSX Tricky for the Xbox(TM) video game system from Microsoft. SSX Tricky, the eagerly anticipated sequel to the top-selling original PlayStation 2 title SSX, features huge new tricks, challenging tracks, zany celebrity characters and innovative "making of" DVD content.

SSX Tricky features incredible big air tricks including the all-new Uber Tricks. Uber Tricks are maneuvers taken from the world of motocross, BMX, skateboarding and even break dancing to create player specific trick rewards. In addition to new tricks, SSX Tricky features two new tracks, while the original eight tracks received a face-lift with redesigns and updates, totaling ten tracks.

One of the innovative new features to SSX Tricky is its release on DVD. DVD allows for extra game content on the disc including two new tracks, alterations to original tracks and the "making of" content similar to what is found on a movie DVD. The "making of" section includes exclusive behind the scenes video featurettes covering subjects from "track creation" to "celebrity voices," giving gamers a peek into the hard work and creativity that goes into creating a hit title.

Bringing the riders to life is another key ingredient in SSX Tricky. The characters in SSX Tricky each bring their own attitude and riding style to the mountain and are brought to life by voice-over and character development work by voice actors including Hollywood celebrities. David Arquette (Scream), Lucy Liu (Charlie's Angels) and Oliver Platt (West Wing) are just a few who contributed their vocal personalities to SSX Tricky. In addition, their real-life counterparts inspired the personalities, looks and styles of the celebrity-voiced characters.

SSX Tricky features totally revamped "trick" versions of the courses called Showoff courses. Here gamers race against the clock while performing huge tricks in an effort to win gold medals for total trick points. Improved rider artificial intelligence makes racers more competitive, while enhanced rider physics affords players more control.

Music plays a huge role in SSX Tricky. New songs and exclusive mixes from the cutting edge world of electronic breaks and beats comprise the techno soundtrack cut by such turntable all-stars as Mix Master Mike of the Beastie Boys, Aphrodite, BT, The Plump DJ's and others. Nettwerk Records will be releasing a soundtrack CD of the music in SSX Tricky. Also, a cool in-game soundtrack delivers an interactive and intelligent companion to gameplay, while music and sound effects, incorporating Dolby(TM) Digital 5.1, are woven into the game to create more emotional moments.
