Steep Open Beta Weekend Hits The Piste In November

To the max, dudes!

Given that the PC version of Watch Dogs 2 is delayed, mid-November will be sorely lacking in Xtreme Livin' It To The MaxX Kickin' It Hangin' Loose Dudes To The Max from Ubisoft. But wait, what's that rumbling sound? Glory be! It's an open beta weekend for Ubi's xtreme wintersports 'em up Steep [official site], set to run November 18th to 21st. If you play the beta while listening to music from 2014 and shouting old Internet memes, Steep might just give you enough xtreme 'tude to tide you over.

Steep, to refresh your memory, is an open-world wintersports game combining skiing, skiing, wingsuiting, snowboarding and other coldstuff. Ubi say this about the beta:

"These Beta phases will allow players to discover the diversity of Steep's world by exploring, riding and completing dozens of challenges through three of the seven regions that compose Steep’s massive open world inspired by the Alps – the Aravis, the Tyrol and the Needles. Players will also find nine Mountain Stories – narrative-based contests that will delve deeper into unique moments in the world of Steep – throughout their journey. Completing these challenges and Mountain Stories will also unlock new gear for players to customise their characters."

A notopen beta will come before then too, on November 10th to 14th. For a chance to play that, you can sign up over here. Then the full game will launch on December 2nd.

To be clear: I do adore the ha-ha-hilariously over-the-top Hackers-looking vibe of Watch Dogs 2.
