Sony has announced that a new patch, which adds two new game modes and a number of fixes, is now available for download for SSX.
The first new game mode included in the patch is 3-2-1-GO!, which allows you to compete with up to 5 riders simultaneously in fast paced Trick It and Race It Heats.
In these events, the helicopter acts as your lobby. After joining a 3-2-1-GO! event you will be taken to the top of the drop, where you will then wait in the helicopter for other riders to join. As soon as at least one more rider shows up, you can choose to buy into the event and ready-up.
3-2-1-GO! Trick Events introduce a countdown timer for the entire run, so the winner is determined by who can post the highest score AND cross the finish line before the clock hits zero. The amount of time given on every drop varies based on the length of the track and the Heat Pacing setting - Hyper, Standard or Relaxed.
In the second game mode 'Freeride', there are no rules, no ghosts, no clock, no score and no other riders. Just you, the mountain and your music, allowing you to explore your surroundings at your own pace and with your own style.
