So Criterion Games got greenlit by EA to produce a new game called Beyond Cars.

I know this is a far reach, doesn't even show any snowboards at this point. But, I really think EA would want to go this way with any extreme sports game instead of just offering snowboards to appeal to a broader population of gamers. None of the characters have been confirmed yet and Criterion says it's a new IP so I might be completely wrong. But, I personally can see how some SSX'y things could be recycled into the game.

Sweet. But yeah, definitely looks like a completely "new" idea and not a spiritual successor to anything.

However it seems like this project is on hold? There hasn't been any news since its first reveal at E3 2014.

Yeah, I tend to agree, there hasn't been anything on this since they revealed it at E3. It didn't seem like all that strong of an idea anyway.

I like the colorful vibe of the characters though. There's nothing quite like a game with 8-10 playable characters whom all have their own unique looks and personalities.

I can't really think of any other game series that has emphasized this kind of character variation except for SSX.

Gamers all around the globe got a taste of what multiple character engagement could feel like with GTA V. Hopefully, GTA V will pave the way for more games with multiple playable characters - with unique looks and personalities.

This reminds me of motorstorm: arctic edge. God I loved that game even though I just played a demo version of it.

I wouldn't like this one because I'm not into first person games.
