Ubisoft’s open world winter sports activities sandbox (snowbox?) Steep is the writer’s newest giveaway. Available to snag and hold perpetually between now and Tuesday, May 21st, it options snowboarding, snowboarding, wingsuit diving and paragliding – 4 enjoyable methods to hurl your self down a mountain with out dying. While sadly not coming with its copious assortment of DLC, it’s, per Ubisoft normal, nonetheless greater than sufficient to get your tooth into, and there’s the choices to develop it additional if you wish to stick round on the slopes. Grab it here, free, and hold it perpetually.

When Brendan Caldwell reviewed Steep back in 2016, he discovered it to be a generally spectacular, however often-frustrating, buggy expertise. That could be a motive to skip on making an attempt it, however Ubisoft have been excellent over the previous few years at responding to criticism and refining their games post-release. I’ve not had the time to check out Steep for myself, however between updates and a number of other expansions, I’d not be shocked if it’s a smoother and extra polished downhill journey now. Such is the character of games now – I by no means may have predicted For Honor’s comeback, for instance.

If you want the bottom game, the season move provides three new packs of stuff. The Adrenaline Pack provides three night-time challenges and a few further gear. The Extreme pack provides three new sports activities to the game – rocket-wings, base leaping and velocity gliding – which look like even much less secure methods to journey down a mountain. The Winter Fest Pack provides sledding, extra challenges, and a few very foolish customization stuff. The Road To The Olympics growth is huge, however extra straight-laced, including Slopestyle, Ski and Snowboard Halfpipe, Big Air, Giant Slalom, Downhill, and Super-G occasions, plus new Japanese & South Korean mountains.

Steep is free to grab here, though you’ll want a Ubisoft login so as to add it to your account. The game’s DLC is all discounted here on the Ubisoft store. Note that the Season Pass contains the Winterfest & Extreme packs, however not the Winter Olympics growth.
