Ubisoft just announced a new IP, Steep. It’s an open world mountain sports game about skiing, snowboarding, wingsuiting, paragliding and mild GoPro induced vertigo. These sports allow for the opportunity to experience an incredible level of freedom in open world games. Steep’s huge open world playground allows players to take advantage of the freedom it offers, in order to discover, compete and pull off all sorts of crazy stunts. Players can meet with friends from all over the world and create all kinds of unique and memorable moments with them. Here’s the announcement trailer for the upcoming game:
In Steep, players are able to use the ‘trail’ feature to relive their trailblazing run-throughs, as well as share them with friends. You’re not limited to simply sharing these moments, you can also challenge friends to beat your best time down a certain slope, or create amazing stunts, or even discover the mountainside.
Here’s the demo:
The GoPro mode actually looks quite fun!
Rebecka Coutaz, studio manager at Ubisoft Annecy says:
“Along with Ubisoft Montpellier and Ubisoft Kiev, we used our significant online and multiplayer expertise to create a game that captures the excitement and adrenaline we feel when we explore the snowy mountains surrounding us.”
Igor Manceau, the Creative Director at Ubisoft adds:
“We love seeing videos of adventures and stunts that riders from all over the world share on social media. Steep’s open-world and wealth of multiplayer activities were built to inspire this type of creativity. We can’t wait to see what players will discover and share when they first experience Steep.”
