Ok, I’m seriously going to have to dive into Steep now. Not only did the game win the Best Sports Game of the Year award at the Game Awards, but now it has sleds. And Winterfest, which I expect is like beer fest but without the Broken Lizard guys. Plus, bikini sledding, T-Rex suits, and big inflatable tubes. It’s coming to all platforms for $11.99 on May 3rd, and is also a part of the Gold Edition and Season Pass. In any case, take a look at the details from the press release below…
What is Steep’s Winterfest?
With the Winterfest add-on content, players will be able to jump into Steep’s stunning Alps to participate in the craziest in-game snow sports festival ever organized. Steep’s massive open world playground gets even more fun with the introduction of a new
action sport: the Winter Sled. In addition to this new sport, Winterfest delivers 21 wacky Winterfest challenges, more than 10 zany costumes, customization items and brand new bosses that will draw players into a breathtaking adventure and invite them to defeat fantastic new foes.
With development led by Ubisoft Annecy*, Steep is designed for a culture that’s all about sharing experiences with the world. Steep features seamless multiplayer, populating the world with players as they explore the Alps and Alaska. Players and friends across the globe can take on challenges together, or compete with each other to snag the top spot on the leaderboards. The game’s replay feature expands this experience, allowing players to relive their wildest tricks and memorable lines and even share them as videos on social media. It doesn’t stop there, as challenges can be created from any line to compete with friends and achieve the best time or score based on customizable factors, such as completing tricks to score.
