Even if the end of the year is upon us, it seems that Ubisoft is busier than ever. The publisher continues to celebrate its 30th anniversary by providing free PC games to its fans; and while Ubisoft didn’t release a new Assassin’s Creed game this year, they worked hard on the upcoming Assassin’s Creed movie which will hit the screens on December 21, 2016.
But that’s not all, because Ubisoft’s Watch Dogs 2 is also around the corner and will become available in 2 weeks for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, while the PC version was delayed by 2 weeks.
For those who missed Ubisoft’s E3 Press Conference, STEEP is an open world extreme sports video game directed by Igor Monceau and developed by Ubisoft Annecy.
The action is set in the Alps where those who love extreme sports can test their skiing, wingsuit flying, snowboarding, and paragliding skills in various events and challenges.
Because STEEP is a multiplayer game, Ubisoft announced that players will be able to test the game ahead of its launch during two phases: an open beta and an early access beta.
STEEP early access beta starts November 10 and will end on November 14. To participate you have to to register here.
The second event is the STEEP open beta which will start on November 18 and will close on November 21. This event doesn’t require a registration, and just like the first one it will be available on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
If you enjoy the game and decide to purchase it at launch, you have two editions to choose from.
First, there is the Standard Edition which can be pre-ordered for $59.99 from Amazon (digital or physical); and then there is the Gold Edition which is a little more expensive.
STEEP Gold Edition costs $89.96 on Amazon and includes a Season Pass as well as the Moonlight Pack.
According to Amazon, the Moonlight Pack gives you access to 3 night challenges, 3 night outfits, glowing equipment, and the wingsuit rocket flare.
