Ubisoft announces the release of Steep, a new action game that allows players
to take the plunge with some extreme wintersports. The
Steep website has details on the release, future plans, season passes, and
more. This trailer offers
a look at gameplay, and
details the season pass. Here's the deal:
In Steep, players drop in to the Alps and ski, snowboard, wingsuit and
paraglide through the game’s massive open world playground, filled with
exhilarating challenges and breathtaking views. Riders can discover remarkable
places and experience unforgettable moments through many different activities
including “Mountain Stories”, which offer more narrative oriented opportunities.
To show off their creativity, players can combine six different playstyles as
they perform crazy stunts and discover uncharted areas: Explorer, Freerider,
Freestyler, Bone Collector, Extreme Rider and Pro Rider. The sky is the limit;
thrill-seekers and explorers alike can drop in anywhere and roam the Alps to
learn the mountains’ secrets. Steep’s open world will be further enriched by the
majestic slopes of Alaska in a free update available after launch.
With development led by Ubisoft Annecy*, Steep is designed for a culture
that’s all about sharing experiences with the world. Steep features seamless
multiplayer, populating the world with players as they naturally explore the
Alps. Players and friends across the globe can take on challenges together or
compete with each other to snag the top spot on the leaderboards. The game’s
replay feature expands this experience, allowing players to relive their wildest
tricks and memorable lines and even share them on social media. It doesn’t stop
there, as challenges can be created from any line to compete with friends on a
variety of customizable levels: time, tricks, risks taken and many more.
For the ultimate Steep experience players can purchase the Gold Edition,
which includes the game and the season pass. The season pass gives players
access to three packs of exclusive challenges, unique costumes, and
adrenaline-pumping add-on sports to make each ride unique and each experience
even more exciting.
