SSX sneaks in as the latest Xbox game available for free on EA Access

SSX, the Xbox 360 snowboarding game from Electronic Arts, has become the latest game to be added to The Vault of free titles with an EA Access subscription for Xbox One owners.

While EA has not officially announced SSX as the latest EA Access title, it's arrival was first noted by Reddit readers, along with commentors on the UK Hot Deals forums. Since, we've been able to verify the game's arrival in The Vault and download it for the Xbox One.

SSX was first released in 2012 for the Xbox 360 and in May, EA added support for Xbox One via the console's backwards compatibility feature. Here's a quick description of the game:

EA SPORTS SSX will allow players to experience the franchise's signature fun and adrenaline-packed gameplay across iconic mountain ranges all over the world. Utilizing NASA topographical satellite data, we've mapped out a Massive World for players to explore. Using a Google-Earth inspired interface, navigate throughout nine expansive mountain ranges and regions, each with multiple peaks and multiple drops.

SSX has become the 24th game added to The Vault for EA Access. Subscribers to the service can play all the games for free for $4.99 a month or $29.99 for 12 months. They also get 10% off the price of all digital Xbox One EA games and get a chance to play free trials for upcoming titles several days before they are released.
