Ubisoft today unveiled some more details of their upcoming Snowboarding/Skiing/Paragliding/Wingsuit sports title Steep.
First, there will be both a closed and open beta. The closed beta will begin on November 10th and run through November 14th. You can register for the closed beta here:
There will then be an open beta that runs from November 18th to November 21st. Details on the beta were provided by Ubisoft:
Both phases will include access to various challenges and nine of the game’s Mountain Stories (story-driven challenges) spread across three of the seven areas that will be featured in the final release, including Aravis, Tyrol, and Needles. Successfully completing challenges and Mountain Stories unlocks new gear that players can use to customize their thrill-seekers. Additionally, players will get to share their best lines with other Beta participants and have the option to experience every run in the first-person perspective with the GoPro View mode.
Lastly a new trailer was shared relating to the beta:
It feels like it’s been a long time since we’ve had a proper snowboarding/skiing game and with the multiplayer opportunities in today’s gaming environment, that’s a shame. Hopefully Steep can reinvigorate the genre.
