SSX Delivers Avalanche of Rewards and Badges

Throw down the controller and celebrate. “That’s right, I just owned you extremely hard course that took my 17 replays to complete!” I don’t know about you, but sometimes–that is what it takes to complete an in game challenge. After completing the challenge, there is always room for an MC Hammer dance or two.

Unlocking characters and upgrades is nothing new, but games nowadays take it to a whole ‘nother level. Whether it is in game comics, characters, or avatar items-the universe of unlockables has reached a new peak. What better ways to deliver on all levels than to have SSX give us those goods?

From what we can understand from the nicely laid out explanation, earned badges stem from eight different categories. The first three come from the games main story mode. In total, there are 177 badges in game–which also plays into Xbox LIVE Achievements, or PlayStation Network Trophies. Those categories are:

  • World Tour
  • Explore
  • Global Events

The others come from the games “three pillars” of gameplay. Those are as follows:

  • Race It
  • Trick It
  • Survive It

Gear & Air & Trick-also a part of these areas.

Among other rewards, players will also be rewarded on performance. Such things as Drop Bonuses will be divvied out on a run-by-run basis. If a player gains a 70 trick combo, they will earn the bonus titled ‘Combo Chain’ at the end of their run. The first time doing one of these will earn a badge, which gives a bit more depth and creates something more than just your typical snowboarding game.

If you didn’t believe us on how intricate the design was for the games rewards, check out this chart which breaks down each accomplishment. It was great seeing other EA faces in games like NBA JAM: On Fire Edition, so who knows who will make their way into SSX.
