Almost six months after its February 2012 release, SSX is hitting the summer slopes with a free title update. The new content boasts two additional gameplay modes, 3-2-1-Go!, a multiplayer race combining points for both tricks and speed, and Freeride, a single player experience that allows open world exploration. Described as the most highly demanded feature from the community, Freeride can be played on any course, removing all competitive aspects for one long smooth trek through the game's vast mountain regions.
The update and new game modes are available now for free on both Xbox Live and PSN. If you've yet to purchase SSX, it can now be picked up for $40.
