You may recall a few days ago when it was revealed that, unsurprisingly, the EA published SSX would contain an online pass. As such there was a bit of a hullabaloo but nothing too unexpected happened. At least not until today when EA has told Game Informer that the online pass for SSX does not actually lock out the online mode for the title.
Rather than lock them out of the game’s multiplayer functions it will lock out any credits players are awarded for competing in the online modes “Explore and “Global Events”. These credits are stored and will be available if the player chooses to pay the $10 for the online pass. EA went on to say that “Economy balance makes it possible to unlock all available content and allows you to participate in all event drops across both Explore and Global Events, with credits earned solely in Explore.”
