E3 2016: Ubisoft Debuts New Sports IP Steep

Sports gaming has been largely traditional for the past decade or so. We haven’t had much variety outside of major sports since the Dreamcast days, when games like Xtreme Sports gave people a fair amount of variety. Today, Ubisoft announced Steep and showed off snowboarding, skiing, parachute jumping (complete with a GoPro sponsorship), and wingsuit jumping. Ubisoft has also launched a website where you can register, declare your platform of choice, and get a taste of the game with a bit of beta testing down the road. The full game ships in December of 2016.

 

A more thorough gameplay runthrough also showed off things in a more in-depth view to give players a better idea of what to expect from the game.
