During the weekend Ubisoft launched Steep for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. The game dropped a day after the 2016 Game Awards after everyone was hyped about popular upcoming games like Death Stranding.
To make matters worse, the day after Steep released there was the 2016 PlayStation Experience over the weekend in Anaheim, California. The weekend was ripe with brand new announcements, new trailers for highly anticipated games, and the first revelation of The Last of Us: Part II, creating a vortex of hype and excitement that left Ubisoft’s open-world, extreme sports game out in the cold.
The game was just released at a really poor time. Nevertheless, the game is currently available and despite being drowned out by bigger and more highly anticipated games this holiday season (such as Titanfall 2, Call of Duty, Battlefield 1 and Final Fantasy XV).
A launch trailer was also rolled out for the game last week but it only managed 8,000 views on the official PlayStation YouTube channel as of the writing of this article, which is pretty piss poor for a launch trailer.
The game features multiple ways of traversal and racing in the game, including skiing, wingsuit gliding, snowboarding and para-gliding.
According to some other videos out there, you can use tricks and stunts during your runs as well as modifiers to alter the way you perform tricks using skis and the snowboard. You don’t really get many options with the para-glider but maybe they’ll address that in a post-launch patch.
The game offers up seamless multiplayer action, single-player events and a large open-world spanning a massive mountain playscape.
Ubisoft is also pushing the Steep Gold Edition pretty heavily, which features three DLC challenge and outfit packs, along with 10,000 credits, bonus helicopter tickets and an exclusive in-game costume.
You can pick up the game right now both digitally and physically for PS4, Xbox One and PC for $59.99. For more information on the game feel free to visit the official website.
