Since the release of Steep, there has not been many snowboarding games. If you’re looking to scratch that Amped itch, Shredders may be the game for you. Xbox Series X players can hit the slopes in a Multiplayer experience launching in December 2021. Foam Punch studio announced the game during Microsoft’s E3 presentation on June 13.
For Riders, By Riders
Though details were scarce, Shredders showcased beautiful snowy mountain tops and tricks reminiscent of the snowboarding games before it. The game has carefully curated ramps, rails, and terrain prime for shredding. With the tagline “For Riders, By Riders”, the team at Foam Punch studios is looking to deliver an authentic snowboarding experience. Shredders will be the first next-gen snowboarding experience and players will not have to wait long to play it.
During the course of the game, players break into the snowboarding events to pull off unimaginable tricks in hopes of gaining entry into more exclusive invitationals.
From the Shredders website “Shredders takes inspiration from a whole bunch of awesome snowboarding films, the Amped games from the original Xbox, and the snowboarding heroes on Instagram.”
It continued, “Shredders is full of hand sculpted parks, urban environments, and off-piste adventures. An open world just waiting to be shredded. Almost every other rider you see on the mountain is a real rider playing right there with you. Compete, shred together with friends, or take on a journey of your own.”
During the gameplay reveal, there seemed to be a few power-ups scattered around the area. They also opened and closed with someone shooting a video of tricks so it seems that a social media and/or photo mode will be in the game.
Shredders is coming to Xbox Cloud Gaming and Xbox Series X|S. It will be available on Game Pass day one.
