E3 2016: Ubisoft Announces Steep, a New Extreme Sports IP

Prepare to tackle the slopes and show your friends in Steep. 


During their dedicated E3 press conference earlier today, Ubisoft announced Steep, an all-new IP combining an open world and extreme sports. 

Being made in partnership with GoPro, Steep features a number of extreme sports including snowboarding, skiing, and base-jumping, all in a large, open map partially set in The Alps. 

The GoPro partnership brings with it a new way for players to share their experience with others via the multiple camera functionalities capable of capturing images and uploading them to share with friends. 

Through this open world, players can take on new quests and challenges, compete for rankings on the leaderboards, and upload replays and images of their adventures on the mountains. 

It is a project that initially served as a demo for Ghost Recon Wildlands and has since been rolled out as a passion project for Ubisoft's Annecy studios, who have been working on it for just over two years. 

During the presentation, Ubisoft also rolled a new look at For Honor and South Park: The Fractured, But Hole
