Steep’s most recent update added the wild, extreme peaks of Alaska’s Mount Denali, including 21 new challenges, 2 branded challenges and one Mountain Story. In Steep’s Alaska, players can conquer new terrain including spinelines, extreme crests, massive glaciers, new urban features and miles of untouched nature. Two additional invitationals challenge players to raise their reputation by pushing their limits on the slopes and outdoing themselves on the leaderboards. Steep fans can continue to customize their lines and replays by donning new Alaska items and costumes.
The latest Steep title update lets players focus on the fun with enhancements made to features, including the tricks system and g-force impacts. Additionally, new camera angles and the ability to capture replay videos without the HUD gives players even more freedom to show off their best stunts with the editor mode.
In Steep, players drop in to the Alps and Alaska and ski, snowboard, wingsuit and paraglide through the game’s massive open world playground, filled with exhilarating challenges and breathtaking views. Developed 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 and Alaska regions. Players and friends across the globe can take on challenges together or compete with each other to snag the top spot on the leaderboards.
