Steep: An open world mountain sports game about skiing, snowboarding, wingsuiting, paragliding and more !
Steep is an upcoming open world extreme sport video game published by Ubisoft and set to release in December 2016 for Microsoft Windows,PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. The game places a great emphasis on online multiplayer, focusing on competing in various winter sporting challenges with other players online.
The game development was started in late 2013 by Ubisoft Annecy. The concept was inspired by the developer’s close proximity to the Alps. Additionally, the decision to move forward in developing the game was greatly influenced by the large number of extreme sporting videos on the video sharing website Youtube. The game was pitched by employees at Ubisoft Annecy, who began creating the prototype shortly after.
The game was revealed at the 2016 Electronic Entertainment Expo as the closing act to Ubisoft’s press conference. The showing included a trailer and playable demo.
