Ubisoft announces Steep, an open-world action game set in the Alps and Alaska
which will center around winter and extreme sports, saying this will come to
Windows and consoles by the end of this year. They also are planning several
beta phases between now and the release, and those interested in participating
should register on
the game's official website. Here's
an announcement trailer
and a gameplay video.
With development led by Ubisoft Annecy,* Steep drops players onto the
peaks of mountains, with exhilarating experiences that include skiing,
wingsuiting, snowboarding, and paragliding. These sports establish an incredible
level of freedom to explore the gameís open world, allowing players to choose
the way they travel and play. Steepís vast playground offers a wide range of
activities that give players the opportunity to discover, compete, pull off
crazy stunts, and more. Players can meet with friends from all over the world to
create unique and memorable moments.
In Steep, players can use the innovative trail feature to relive their most
inspiring rides and trailblazing achievements, and share them on social networks
with friends. Along with sharing ride replays, players can also use this feature
to challenge friends to outrace them on a shared path, create epic stunts or set
out to discover the massive mountain playground.
