SSX drops Deadly Descents subtitle

SSX Deadly Descents, revealed at last year’s VGAs is no longer SSX Deadly Descents, just SSX. EA decided to drop the subtitle seeing as Deadly Descents only refers to one of the game’s three main modes.

In an interview with Game Informer where the name change was revealed, creative director Todd Batty also explains: “I’ve always thought racing was the core of SSX, and we didn’t want to go away from that, so we’re going to have Speed Descent events and of course we’ll have tricks in our Tricky Descent events.”

The team at EA Canada are promising a lot of things with this revival. Will they deliver? Or will they tumble down the mountain side?
