Free Version Of Ubisoft's Extreme Sports Game Steep Is Available Today
Ski, snowboard, wingsuit, and paraglide in an open-world.
Depending on your platform and where you live, Steep's free version may already be available. Check out the image below to find out more about global availability. The free play weekend wraps up on Monday, March 13.
As announced previously, the free version of Steep comes with access to the entire game, which includes courses in the Alps and in Alaska, a region that was added in a recent free update. The game lets you ski, snowboard, wingsuit, and paraglide in an open-world, sandbox-style environment.
During the free weekend, Steep's standard edition will be 50 percent off. The Gold Edition will be 40 percent off on Xbox Live until March 13 and until March 20 for PS4. Ubisoft's own Ubisoft Store will discount the game's standard and gold editions by 50 percent until March 14.
All progress from the free weekend will carry forward if you decide to buy the game. You can read more about Steep's free weekend here on the game's website.
Steep launched in December and has been updated multiple times. In addition to the free Alaska DLC, the game has added things like new camera angles and the ability to record replays without the HUD. The game exceeded Ubisoft's sales expectations, though the company never said what it was projecting the game to sell or how many copies it's moved to date.
