Hi All,

 

So I've started this thread, rather than have to comment all over the place on the subject!

 

For those that haven't heard, there's buzz on Twitter about new DLC coming soon & I'll try my best to keep this thread updated when I see/hear anything! If you guys can do the same please?

 

Todd Batty (EA Creative Director) via Twitter... "Oh man, #SSX fans in for a treat soon #YOP"

 

Jeffery Simpson  (Communications Specialist for EASports) via Twitter... "Working on lots of cool #SSX stuff with kinbitty this month. Very excited."

 

More later...:smileyhappy:

Thanks again nick and anyone else that posts any latest shiny news here, to keep us all in the loop.

I think this is gona be a BIG One!

Who knows might actually see some of you guys on the slopes (and not your ghosts?) soon.
Edit: ((although thats probably more for SSX 'HD' 2?))



Ps nick, 'troll'!?!? Lol. I prefer something like "merq'er lurker"
Ive been peering over the shoulder of those guys since about a week after launch. Most of them used to seem really hardcore, and I never felt 'hardcore' enough it make an account there.

True, they could never replicate the feeling of the, walm motherly "pillow" that is the Official PlayStation Forum. No no!!
Neither do they have their own "legend that is Vissy", although they do have some DJ bloke over there. But he doesn't seem half as important or legendary ;-p



Nah dont trust em... Any news on SSX DLC etc, isn't real until its posted here!!!

Seems like the crowd over on mercurycity.com are starting to get a bit irritated with Todd Batty "trolling" them about the new DLC & he has posted the following over on that sight in reply to one users message, to maybe help people check their expectations of what (& when) the next DLC will be!

 

martymcflyy85 wrote:
Next time can you please begin the trolling a little closer to the actual date of whatever is you are trolling about...like maybe a couple of days before?  Because the longer this drags out the bigger our expectations will grow until it turns into a monster that will end up being a letdown.  Like if we found out that maybe Allegra is coming in 2 days or whatever...everyone would be so pumped.  But at this point...after all this...if it turns out to be ONLY Allegra, then that would suck.
That being said...I would so download Allegra in a second and I am thankful that we are getting anything at all.
Todd Batty reply:

Haha, okay Marty I gotcha. Thanks for the feedback.
So let's manage expectations for a moment.
There are only a handful of us still working on support for this game. SSX is not COD. There are very few games that get multiple DLC, expansions, TU's, etc and SSX has already had 2 TU's (one of which patched in the Ridernet Radio feature) and a pretty solid PDLC in Mt. Eddie + friends. We have also worked hard at support in keeping things fresh and reacting to all of your valuable feedback whenever we can. For this, I hope you are all already thankful. I know we are sincerely thankful to have had the opportunity to even do this much.
The fact that we are soon bringing something else to you, our beloved fans, is very exciting for all of us still working on SSX. And we can't wait to share it with you no matter how big or small it may be.
I suppose we could just stay quiet and wait until it is a few days away, but figured it might be kind of fun to stir things up a little and see if we can get your interest back up. Even this site of our most dedicated fans has started to grow a bit quiet recently.
So there you go. If you would rather just wait for a big, official announcement with all the details there will definitely be one of those at some time in the near future.
In the meantime, I will try to keep any and all hints and trolling confined to this thread. And probably twitter.
Cool?

Just woke up and had my morning scan of the forum and saw this ^ ^ ^

Watched it once so far whilst half asleep, the only things ive noticed so far are.
There's no hud and the heli pick up on a non survival run....?

Ill have another look later after 1 or 5 more coffees!

^^^ I hear you on the coffee's mate! :smileyvery-happy:

 

MerqCity is abuzz with the no HUD & heli pick up as you said... Basically a freeride mode all have been asking for, so as to truly enjoy the sights & the tricks, without always feeling that competitive push lurking there!

 

Some guys were asking about new tricks & initially I thought there is, but most of the pros seem to say they've always been there! Guess I'm always flipping/spinning each trick & therefore never really took time to notice each trick... Something I'll do in freeride mode I guess! :smileywink:

 

Anyhoo... I have expressed my curiosity about the one handed rail grind at 0:56 in the vid? :smileysurprised:

Would love to know your guys thoughts?

Hi All...

 

Just wanted to let you know I have been keeping my eye on things & seems there's not much happened this past week, or I'd have let you know already! :smileyhappy:

 

& this from Twitter confirms it...

 

Todd Batty@kingbitty

@SeanZen there was no new news this week, I'm on vacation so out of the loop. should hopefully hear something early next week?

 

 

On that sad note... Enjoy your weekend & maybe there's more news next week!

They're releasing puzzle pieces & there's a whole lot of speculation over on MerqCity thread if anyone interested?
