Steep Open Beta Set for November 18

Steep Open Beta Set for November 18

Ubisoft's winter sports extravaganza will enter beta next month!

Ubisoft today announced that Steep, its upcoming winter sport title, will be having two beta phases in the month of November. The first phase will be the weekend of November 10, available to players who register on the official website by November 9. The second phase will take place on the weekend of November 18 and is available to all players who download the client.

"These beta phases will allow players to discover the diversity of Steep's world by exploring, riding and completing dozens of challenges through three of the seven regions composing Steep's massive open world inspired from the Alps – the Aravis, the Tyrol and the Needles," said Ubisoft in its announcement.

"Players will also find nine Mountain Stories – narrative-based challenges that will delve deeper into unique moments in the world of Steep – throughout their journey. Completing these challenges and Mountain Stories will also unlock new gear for players to customize their characters."

I'm looking forward to jamming with Steep once again, after my time with the game at E3 2016. I have a hunger for digital snowboarding, but adding skiing, paragliding, and wingsuits into the mix prevents me from holding back my hype.

Steep is coming to PC, Xbox One, and PlayStation 4 on December 2.

M.H. Williams is new to the journalism game, but he's been a gamer since the NES first graced American shores. Third-person action-adventure games are his personal poison: Uncharted, Infamous, and Assassin's Creed just to name a few. If you see him around a convention, he's not hard to spot: Black guy, glasses, and a tie.
