Ubisoft® announced that Winterfest, the add-on content for Steep™, is now available for season pass and gold edition owners on Xbox One, PlayStation®4 computer entertainment system and Windows PC. Winterfest add-on is also available for purchase separately.
After tackling the Alps and Alaska on skis, snowboards, wingsuits and paragliders, Winterfest owners will be able to race down the slopes on a winter sled. Winterfest owners will also be taking part in the craziest winter sports festival ever. The start of the in-game Winterfest festival heralds the arrival of the most chilling yeti boss living in the Alps: The Beast, the veritable king of Winterfest. To take over his throne, players will make their way through 21 wacky challenges, such as flying through the air hunting balloons in wingsuits, evading enemy fire while hurtling down the mountain at breakneck speeds, and even taking on the guise of a goat-eating dinosaur. As they take on crazier feats than ever before, players will have to beat 4 mini-bosses on their way to the final challenge; a boss battle against the king himself.
The Winterfest festival also brings more crazy costumes and equipment to the world of Steep. Winterfest owners will be able to access exclusive Winterfest-themed costumes and equipment, including a dinosaur costume, banana costume, sumo suit, swimsuit, and asuperhero costume. The in-game shop will also be updated to include new costumes and equipment available to all players.
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 which populates 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 customisable factors, such as completing tricks.
For the ultimate Steep experience players can purchase the gold edition, which includes the game and season pass. The season pass gives players access to the Adrenaline Pack and Winterfest add-on, available now, and the upcoming Extreme Pack add-on; three packs that include exclusive challenges, unique costumes, and new adrenaline-pumping sports to make each ride unique and each experience even more exciting. Season pass owners will also receive an exclusive Snowman costume, the Sasquatch costume, the Dollar Proximity Wingsuit costume, 10,000 Steep credits, and in-game helicopter tickets.
