Ubisoft also announced today that everyone who preorders Steep's regular or Gold Edition will get the Moonlight Pack. This comes with the following night-themed content:

  • Three extra night challenges
  • Three new night outfits
  • Glowing equipment for each activity (ski, snowboard, wingsuit and paraglide)
  • Wingsuit Rocket Flare

Steep was announced at E3. Set in the Alps, the game lets players take part in a number of action sports, including skiing, wingsuiting, snowboarding, and paragliding. Players can switch between these whenever they want while making their way down a slope. You can play Steep by yourself or with friends, either cooperatively or competitively through skills challenges and more.

While Steep's base game content is set in the Alps, a free post-launch update will add a mountain in Alaska. A beta for Steep is also on the way and you can register for it here.

Development on Steep is being led by Ubisoft Annecy, while associate studios are Ubisoft Montpellier and Ubisoft Kiev. The game will be released for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
