E3 2017: Big Olympics Expansion Announced For Steep

Downhill, snowboard cross, and more.


At its E3 2017 press conference today, Ubisoft announced that a big new expansion is coming to its extreme sports game, Steep. It's an Olympics expansion and adds a ton of new sports and modes.

Highlighting the expansion is the addition of downhill skiing. Right now, Steep only includes freestyle skiing; ski races are open-mountain affairs that send skiers careening down big cliffs and over huge jumps. Downhill is more technical, requiring skiers to ski on a set track.

Steep originally launched last year for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It currently has four extreme sports: skiing, snowboarding, wingsuiting, and paragliding.
