Shredders is exactly what fans of games like SSX and Steep have been asking for. Launching on March 17th on PC, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and Xbox/PC Game Pass, Shredders is the newest arcade snowboarding game to hit the slopes. In many ways, Shredders sounds like if Forza Horizon were a snowboarding game. You get accepted to a participate in a thrilling snowboarding invitational, the wild card participant who no one sees as likely to make a splash. You get to explore a wide open world full of different events, plenty of real snowboarding stars for you to unlock, and a gallery of gear for you to customize your avatar with.
Shredders was originally planned to release last year but was met with a series of delays that pushed its launch date to March 17th. The extra time seems to have paid off however, the world is large, beautiful, and full of high speed snowboarding tricks and thrills. I really appreciate the amount of personality that the developers have managed to inject into the game, reminding me a lot of Tony Hawk’s skateboarding series, but with that Forza Horizon style open world adventure feel.
