August 30, 2016 – Walnut Creek, CA – Video game publisher Maximum Games, in partnership with developer HB Studios, announced the addition of five top professional snowboarders for its upcoming action sports game, Mark McMorris Infinite Air, which is set for release on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam on October 25th, 2016.
Joining the Canadian pro-snowboarder and cover athlete, Mark McMorris, will be Olympian and three-time X Games Gold medalist Silje Norendal, two-time X Games Gold medalist Torstein Horgmo, two-time X Games Gold medalist Danny Davis and Norwegian style master Ulrik Badertscher. Proving that snowboarding runs in the family, Mark’s very own brother, professional snowboarder and on-air personality Craig McMorris, also joins the pack, rounding out the group of top athletes. This all-star lineup of six well-known and highly talented pro snowboarders will be available to play in-game, adding yet another layer to the authenticity and excitement of the snowboarding experience only available in Infinite Air.
“Working closely with the development of Infinite Air and getting these amazing riders involved in the game has been amazing,” said pro snowboarder Mark McMorris. “We wanted players to experience the same thrill we feel on the snow, and it’s exciting to think that soon they will know what that adrenaline feels like.”
From the high alpine snowy mountain tops to the beloved powdery play zones, Infinite Air boasts more than 100 square miles of vast backcountry terrain in a highly detailed open world waiting to be uncovered. The options are endless as procedurally generated mountains guarantee that no two rides will ever be experienced the same way. Soaring high across the panoramic sky and utilising the assistance of a helicopter that drops you in, just like the real pros, players will also have the ability to land in virtually any location offered in the game.
Infinite Air amplifies the hyper-realistic experience of snowboarding with the thrill of achieving massive air. With the inclusion of real-world events such as the popular Burton US Open Slopestyle and Half Pipe, courses can mirror the twists and turns of the real life competition. Infinite Air promises to deliver the visceral intensity of professional snowboarding for those who seek it.
Mark McMorris Infinite Air is currently in development from HB Studios and will be published by Maximum Games. The game will be available worldwide on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC on October 25th, 2016.
Mark McMorris Infinite Air is available to pre-order for £39.99 / $49.99 / €49.99. Please visit the official website for more product information.
