Steep is an open world extreme sports video game developed by Ubisoft Annecy and published by Ubisoft for Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Ride a massive open world of the Alps and Alaska, where the powder is always fresh and the run never ends. Defy and master the world’s most epic mountains with skis, wingsuit, snowboard, and paraglider. Go solo or drop in side by side with other players. Record and share the most insane stunts ever captured. Dare your friends to try out your custom lines, then challenge the world to beat your best tricks and relive your most epic wipeouts.
Steep is a very online-focused game, in which all players share the same game world, engaging in various sports activities simultaneously. Players can also collide with each other if they enable the collide feature.To navigate the world quickly, players can use the mountain mode, which shows different “drop zones” in the game. These drop zones serve as fast travel points that allow players to reach different parts of the game’s world without having to actually interactively move that distance. There are various hidden races and challenges and secret areas, which can be discovered and unlocked through exploring the world. Players are also equipped with a pair of binoculars, which can be used to discover new locations.
Steep also has a trick system, which allows players to perform special techniques such as spinning and grabbing while they are skiing or snowboarding. Players receive points if they perform tricks. If the player performs excellently in a race, they will receive a medal as an award. When the player crashes during a challenge, they have the ability to retry it immediately and view the amount of g-Force the player’s character endured during the crash. When players are participating in these extreme sport activities, a trail will be recorded automatically, which can be viewed through entering the mountain mode, Players can use the pause, rewind, and replay features to capture screenshots and view their own performance data and other players’ experience.
