Steep is Ubisoft’s attempt to reinvent the snowboarding genre in video games and it goes a long way to do this. Last year we reviewed Steep and if you haven’t tried it yet you can read the review here.
Today was meant to see the release of the free Alaska DLC for Steep. Unfortunately this DLC has now been delayed. But don’t worry people, the DLC is still slated for release but we will have to wait until February 24th. So not too far away then.
As a way of explaining the delay Ubisoft said “Our teams are always committed to bringing the best experience possible to all players. With this in mind, we are postponing the launch of our Alaska free game update.” So at least they are thinking of us then.
The Alaska DLC is set to bring about entire new zones for you to explore. The main game is set in the French Alps so this means that this new DLC is set in an entire different country meaning that although the snow will still be there the view will be very different.
As way of compensation Ubisoft have given us a new trailer to enjoy.
