WALNUT CREEK, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Today, Maximum Games announced a joint venture with HB Studios to
release Infinite Air featuring Mark McMorris, the first
open-world, physics-based snowboarding video game built in partnership
and close collaboration with top snowboarder Mark McMorris. Infinite
Air
boasts vast, customizable mountain ranges and a highly
reactive, fluid control system, promising to be the most authentic
snowboarding game to date. Gamers can get on board this fall when Infinite
Air
releases on PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system,
Xbox One and PC.

“We could not be happier to be working with HB Studios again,” said
Christina Seelye, CEO of Maximum Games. “They are masters at creating
in-depth sports games and making the thrill of sports accessible to
everyone.”

With the ability to sculpt terrain in an endless backcountry, publish
your best runs, participate in Halfpipe, Slopestyle and Big Air
competitions, and challenge friends online, Infinite Air
combines the exciting social aspects of snowboarding with the
exhilaration of a hyper-realistic experience on the snow. Infused with
the riding style of Mark McMorris, and featuring the top athlete as a
playable character in the game, Infinite Air will focus on
real world physics to give players a genuine taste of the sport.

“The fascinating thing about video games is that they open up
possibilities that wouldn’t be an option in real life, and Infinite
Air
is the ultimate example of that,” said Peter Garcin,
Executive Producer at HB Studios. “We’d all love to snowboard like Mark,
and now with this game, we all can.”

Players will have an unparalleled amount of riding expression at their
fingertips as they master skills — whether shredding infinite
powder-laden runs or testing their abilities on custom courses. They
will also have the option to place rails, jumps and other obstacles just
about anywhere to build their own unique terrain parks. With
procedurally generated mountains and a deep editor that lets players
produce and share their creations for the world to ride, Infinite
Air
brings the mountain to you when it launches this fall on
PS4™ system, Xbox One, and PC.

About Mark McMorris

With immense talent and a healthy dose of charisma, Canadian Mark
McMorris is one of snowboarding’s leading men. The Saskatchewan native
has staked his claim in the sport, possessing 12 X Games medals under
his belt along with 2 US Open wins, Dew Tour wins and many other
accolades to date. In 2012, Mark became only the second person to ever
win double gold at the Winter X Games (Big Air and Slopestyle); it was
also that year that Mark took home the Transworld Rider’s Poll Rookie of
the Year award. As one of Canada’s top Winter Olympic hopefuls, all eyes
were on McMorris in Sochi, 2014. After winning silver at the Winter X
Games despite suffering a broken rib in Slopestyle finals only ten days
prior, Mark shocked the world and walked away with the bronze medal in
Slopestyle and continues to push his limits to grab gold. Mark has shown
nothing short of greatness in 2016, taking wins at Dew Tour, Laax Open,
and X Games, as well as Rider of the Year awards from both Transworld
Snowboarding and Snowboarder Magazines. You can find Mark on Twitter,
Instagram,
and Facebook.
