Winter is coming and that can mean only one thing – the Winter Olympics. This time round though things are a whole load different as Ubisoft will be sorting the official Olympics game with Steep Road to the Olympics. Want to check out all the details and dates of the open beta?
Ubisoft have today announced that the beta for Steep Road to the Olympics will take place on Xbox One, PS4 and PC, with enhanced features being put in place for those on PS4 Pro and Xbox One X. It’ll be running between the 28th November to 4th December 2017 and will include five challenges alongside a free roam area. Players will be able to compete in two Olympics events in the South Korea map, Downhill and Big Air, and overcome two snowboard and one wingsuit challenges in the Japan map. A segment of the Japan map will also be able to be explored in free roam.
If you wish to preload the open Beta, then it will be available on November 28th at midnight local time on Xbox One and PS4, with a 23:00 UK time on Uplay PC. Servers open on November 28th at 17:00 UK time.
You may well wish to get involved too as the player who finishes on top of the downhill leaderboard at the end of the Open Beta will have a chance to win a ticket to the Olympic Winter Games PyeongChang 2018 in South Korea. Details regarding that will be coming soon.
Steep Road to the Olympics will be available from 5th December on Xbox One, PS4 and PC priced at £26.99. Steep Winter Games Edition, which includes the base game and the expansion, will set you back £39.99. The Winter Games Gold Edition, also includes the Season Pass , which gives players access to three previously released add-on packs featuring additional sports, challenges and outfits for £59.99.
If you wish to get involved in some skiing, snowboarding, wingsuiting and paragliding, all whilst hitting the Big Air, Half Pipe and Slopestyle freestyle events, then you could do worse than hit up Steep and its Road to the Olympics expansion. The competition takes place in the South Korean mountains, where the Olympic Winter Games are being held this coming February, 2018 and the additions will allow you to be able to explore the mountains of Japan, carving through unique powder and exceptional environments.
