Snowboarding is cool. I’ll never be cool enough to snowboard. I mean, I’m spending my Saturday writing video game news about a video game about something that’s plainly too cool for me. That’s how uncool I am.
Nonetheless, here we are. Being uncool and writing about the opportunity to participate in the Beta phases of Steep, Ubisoft’s wonderfully snowy open world mountain adventure simulator. And it’s not just snowboarding. There’s skiing, too. Swoop. Swoop. Swoop. And Paragliding. And wingsuit…ing? Wingsuit flying? Whatever. That’s a different kind of swoop.
But it’s still cool.
Ride a massive open world of the Alps and Alaska, where the powder is always fresh and the run never ends. Defy and master the world’s most epic mountains on skis, wingsuit, snowboard, and in paraglide. Go solo or drop in side by side with other players. Record and share the most insane stunts ever captured. Dare your friends to try out your custom lines, then challenge the world to beat your best tricks and relive your most epic wipeouts.
Steep comes out DECEMBER 2016.
The mountain is yours to explore. So strap in, suit up, and drop in.
Wow. That sounds really cool. While I know I’m not cool enough to do any of those things in real life, I’m pretty sure I’m not cool enough to do them in a video game either.
But you just might be.
If you think you’re cool enough, why not register to be part of Steep’s Beta phases. All you have to do is visit the signup page and sign in with your Ubisoft Uplay account. I think if you’re the kind of person who has a Uplay account, you’re probably automatically cool. Hopefully.
Look how cool this is.
I’ve said ‘cool’ too many times, haven’t I? Uncool, man. Uncool.
