We imagine there’s little to beat climbing a mountain in the Alps, turning around and looking in awe at the vista before you. Well, nothing except throwing yourself off that mountain, opening your wingsuit and soaring over the tree tops and through the valleys and ravines below. And that’s STEEP; soar, ski, parachute and snowboard your way through an astonishing snow-filled open world. Set in the snowy mountains of the Alps and the Pyrenees, Ubsioft hopes to breathe some much-needed life into the extreme sports genre, and capitalise on the absence of white powder and laminated boards since 2012’s SSX. With STEEP, Ubisoft … Read More »

In the modern era it’s rare you’ll find a game that doesn’t get people really passionate before it’s even released. Often a title will have a whole host of supporters and conversely a whole band of people sworn against it. Steep is one of those rarer titles that seems to have been met with a quiet trepidation so far. Yesterday developer Ubisoft revealed what players who invest in the season pass can expect to get in terms of content. Season Pass bonuses -The Snowman Costume. -10,000 STEEP Credits to buy costumes and equipment. -10 Helicopter Tickets, letting the player spawn pretty … Read More »

It’s here, the ever sobering Monday morning has once again snuck up on us once again. As we stand here scratching our heads wondering where the weekend went, we now have a choice; do we have a blue Monday or a wahoo Monday, I choose option 2 and go for the wahoo. Here’s where we can help with that, it’s time for the brand new lineup of ‘Games Out This Week’ – time to grab that brew and get that seat, here comes the hype train. 28/11/2016 Stern Pinball Arcade Many of the all-time greatest pinball tables are being created … Read More »

Mountain sport sim STEEP has just finished a weekend-long Beta, leaving us with mixed impressions; we think there’s an engaging snowboarding game to be found, a little buried under some awkward controls. Nevertheless, the game shows promise, and ambition. It’s that ambition that’s showcased in STEEP: Made in the Alps, a behind-the-scenes documentary exploring the game and the development team behind it. The strongest impression we were left with after some hands-on time with the Beta was the drama and majesty of the world of STEEP – and this documentary clearly shows the inspiration behind the game, and some stunning alpine … Read More »

Steep has been a very anticipated title from Ubisoft, very recently it had a closed alpha that received mixed responses. Today you get to experience it for yourselfs, from midnight last night the open Beta was downloadable. The servers where not turned on at that point by the looks of things as we tried our best to give it a go, more than likely they will be turned on first thing this morning. Lets hope the is the spiritual successor to SSX as some have claimed, let us know once you’ve played how you feel overall. Don’t forget to check … Read More »

Earlier this month the Steep Closed Alpha divided opinions amongst the extreme sports and gaming fans who spend their down time playing video games. Some camps enjoyed the Alpha a lot and saw it as a worthy spiritual successor to the SSX series. Others quite simply did not enjoy the small snippet they were privy to, citing difficulties getting to grips with the control system as well as the travel times as the prime gripes. Those with very little positive to say about their Alpha experience have not deterred UbiSoft one little bit. The pre-release schedule for Steep remains the … Read More »

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 … Read More »

The dust has finally settled on the whirlwind gaming extravaganza that was E3 2016, meaning it’s time for us to look back and reflect on the games that we can now start eagerly awaiting due to their 2016 release dates.
