If you’re a fan of snowboard, or extreme sports involving snow, then Steep might just be the kind of game you’re looking for. Steep is available for free starting today, and players will be able to download it via the Uplay store until May 21, when the special deal ends.
Back when Steep first came out, our reviewer stated, “There are neat aspects of Steep. The environments are beautifully rendered, made up of striking vistas and comfortable mountainside villages. The character animations are elaborate and complex, changing as they trudge through varying depths of snow and alternate between walking, running, and crawling along steeper inclines. Gliding along and cutting through the powder on a snowboard or skis has a smooth, natural feel, and flying through the air in the wingsuit or parachute feels strangely peaceful, yet chaotic. Everything about it visually is extremely well-executed and evocative.” You can, of course, check out our full Steep review for more of our thoughts on the game.
No matter which way you slice it, Steep is well worth picking up for absolutely free while the deal lasts. To do so, all you’ll need to do is login to your Uplay account and then make your way to the Steep Giveaway tab. One thing to note is that Steep might focus around snowboarding, but the game itself is so much more than that, offering an intense look at several other extreme sports that continue to thrill the wide world of sporting fans.
Make sure you grab Steep before this special deal ends on May 21. You’ll also want to head on over and follow Shacknews on Twitter. We always tweet out new guides, news, and other content, which you can have delivered right to your timeline, so that you never miss any important news or information.
