Amped was once a highly successful snowboarding series. After releasing Amped 3 in late 2005, developer Indie Built was busily working on Amped 4 and Links 2007. Both games were cancelled when the studio was closed in April 2006.
While the Amped series was formerly exclusive to Microsoft consoles, Amped 4 was going to be published on Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. Major additions included a resort community and technical improvements.
