EA reveal they'll be showcasing SSX's "very unique online mode" with details likely spilling August 16th. So far only singleplayer gameplay has aired.
The latest episode of EA's PWNED announced that SSX will be strutting its multiplayer assets for us to hopefully drool over at Gamescom. The game features an open world with real-world locations to experience. It was formerly known as SSX: Deadly Descents.
The series appears to have adopted a more serious tone and introduced wingsuits to help the player traverse the harsh landscapes. This has divided the community somewhat who are used to more action arcade antics in the series.
SSX releases on Xbox 360 and PS3 in January 2012. Gamescom runs August 17th to the 21st with EA holding a press conference on the 16th.
