Winter sports sandbox Steep is free to keep this week

Ubisoft's open world winter sports sandbox (snowbox?) Steep is the publisher's latest giveaway. Available to snag and keep forever between now and Tuesday, May 21st, it features skiing, snowboarding, wingsuit diving and paragliding - four fun ways to hurl yourself down a mountain without dying. While sadly not coming with its copious collection of DLC, it is, per Ubisoft standard, still more than enough to…

Steep expansion carves path to 2018 Winter Olympics

Imagine a world in which Steep [official site] was a game about brewing tea. Instead of racing down snowy peaks you'd be keeping an anxious watch over a set of mugs, trying to gauge the strength of a brew and serving it to a visitor's specifications. Harder levels would feature darker mugs making it hard to tell whether you'd got a tincture on your hands…

Steep adds Alaska in free update today

I have written a topical joke: A: Which region is Ianthe Ubisoft adding to Steep [official site] in a free update today? B: I'll ask her. A: Don't worry, Alaska myself. While B did not know, the answer is: Alaska. The open-world snowsports 'em up today adds a chunk of virtual Alaska which Ubisoft say is about the size of its Alps region - doubling…

Feature: Hug that mountain

Steep review

Steep [official site] is a lot like the extreme sportspeople it represents. It is excitable, loud and eager to have fun, fast and fresh. But in its haste and keenness it has somehow forgotten to take some of the most obvious precautions and frequently falls down flat on its face. The disappointing thing is that these failings – mostly failings of control and flow -…

Feature: It's snow SSX

Steep open beta: Great mountains, infuriating controls

The world has been in want of a good snowboarding game for a while. Having spent a few hours with the beta of Steep [official site] over the weekend, I’m not yet sure that it is the successor to SSX and Cool Boarders that we're looking for. But that’s okay, because there are three other extreme sports rolled into it. And one of them involves…

The beta doesn't begin until Friday but you can now preload the game, which is handy as it's a 19GB download. If that sounds big to you, hey, consider how big the Alps are. You could…

Ubi’s Steep Wingsuiting, Skiing Etc. To December

The most surprising and delightful announcement of Ubisoft's E3 shindig is Steep [official site], an extreme wintersport 'em up with wingsuiting, snowboarding, paragliding, and skiing around the Alps. It looks fast and fun and generally pretty dang cool! And briefly gruesome when people slam into the side of a mountain at a million miles per hour. Along with online racing and whatnot, hey, it can…
