Got nothing to do this weekend? How about a free game? Ubisoft’s downhill skiing/snowboarding game, Steep, will be offered free of charge this weekend only. It’s not a limited demo, it’s the full game, including online play and the newest region added, Alaska.
· Grinding: In Alaska, there’s new spots to try adding a new spin to tricks, including more colorful villages and snow banks. Grinding on rails is now easier in Steep, and you can combine these with other tricks to create truly sick stunts.
· Spinelines: Exploring Alaska in Steep can feel just like it would in real life. With long, winding trail of spineline down the side of epic Mount Denali, you can cut and carve your way to sweet lines.
· Editor Mode: New camera angles are available for your editing pleasure! You can also remove the HUD to ensure your final creation is polished and nothing gets in the way of showing off crazy stunts.
