During Ubisoft’s E3 2016 briefing, the publisher announced Steep, an open-world action sports game for consoles and PC.
Steep has been in development for at least 2.5 years. Leading development on the game is Ubisoft Annecy, a French studio that most recently collaborated on The Division. The developer is physically located close to the Alps, helping them become inspired, developers said.
Some of the action sports types available in Steep include skiing, paragliding, snowboarding, and traversal in a wingsuit. Players can also change to a different method on the fly. Players will find “hundreds” of activities to participate in, while there will also be challenges to take on.
Some of the settings include Austria, Italy, Switzerland, and France, though no specific mountain ranges were announced. It’s also unknown if the game is based on real-world places.
In a Q&A this week, Ubisoft revealed that Steep will let players choose between first and third person. There will also be the option to use a “free cam” as well as a “Go Pro-like” perspective.
