At E3 2017, Ubisoft Annecy announced a brand new expansion for its hit sports game Steep.
Titled Road to Olympics, this expansion is entirely focused on, as the name suggests, the upcoming 2018 Winter Olympic Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea. Six new game modes will be added to the title in this expansion. These include the following:
- Giant Slalom
- Super G
- Big Air
Also available in the expansion is the ability to choose a country to represent, and compete with players from around the world.
Unfortunately, players will have to wait a while for the expansion, as it’s set to release on all platforms on December 5th, 2017.
A trailer for the expansion was also released. You can check it out at the end of the article.
