11th Aug 2010, Oxford, UK. X2 Games has announced X2 Snowboarding BASE, a new way to try the critically-acclaimed winter sports hit X2 Snowboarding for iPhone and iPod Touch. Substantially different from the X2 Snowboarding School demo and the full-priced X2 Snowboarding, the BASE version features the same slope-shredding, console-quality action of its stable mates in a bite-sized form, with in-game downloads to allow players a means to expand upon the free-to-play content as they see fit.
When downloaded from the App Store, X2 Snowboarding BASE includes two tracks, two characters and two board designs from the full version and supports multiplayer over Bluetooth and WiFi. In-game purchases, each priced at 59 UK pence, 0.79 Euros or 99 US cents respectively and available from the in-game shop, unlock four additional packs that include a course, a character and two snowboards apiece.
Des Gayle, producer, X2 Games comments:“X2 Games is all about what the player wants, so we’re offering X2 Snowboarding’s high-quality gameplay in a new form, which lets them tailor content from the full version to their own wishes by buying what they want from the full version, when they want it.” He continues;“We’re making sure the free-to-play download is enough to get players hooked and compelled to complete the collection without locking away fun features like multiplayer or offering cut-down levels.”
X2 Snowboarding BASE will be available from the App Store on Friday 13th August.
