By: on May 2, 2012

Electronic Artannounced today the availability of the EA SPORTS SSX Mt. Eddie and Classic Characters DLC packs on XBLA and PSN. Building upon the successful re-launch of the SSX franchise, the SSX DLC packs pay homage to the franchise’s rich heritage with the SSX Tricky inspired Mt. Eddie, three retro music tracks, and seven classic retro-themed characters from the SSX universe. SSX fans can purchase both packs as a bundle for $7.99 or download the packs separately for $5.99 each.
