EA Games commissioned us to promote SSX, their new snowboarding video game, and one of the most critically acclaimed arcade franchises of all-time.
SSX allows players to experience the franchise's signature fun and adrenaline-packed gameplay across iconic mountain ranges all over the world.
As part of the campaign we seeded a short film. Defy Reality Live invited fans from around the world to 'race, trick and survive' a dramatic 400-metre long zip-line night jump, flying down from 60 metres up at speeds hitting 80kph from the top of Battersea Power Station in London.
