Ubisoft's Steep Free to Play This Weekend

Ubisoft's Steep Free to Play This Weekend

Steep, Ubisoft's open world extreme sports thing, costs nothing to play this weekend. The free weekend will end at 10am PT/1pm ET on Monday, March 13 for PS4 and PC players, while Xbox One players will have until 11:59pm PT on March 13. If you're on PC you can start a preload via Uplay right now, if you like.

You're getting access to the entire game, which includes courses in the Alps and in Alaska, a region that was added in a recent free update. The update was supposed to be released on February 10, but it was delayed because "Our teams are always committed to bringing the best experience possible to all players". In Steep's Alaska, players can conquer new terrain, including spinelines, extreme crests, massive glaciers, new urban features, and miles of untouched nature.

To download the game for free on Uplay, please launch Uplay PC.

Along with the free game play, players will get the ability to dress in custom gear, grow the athletes reputation by competing in challenges, receive invites to sponsored events and even tackle some of the high heights and the more unsafe courses, according to the official website. Xbox One owners will be able to buy the standard version of the game at a 50 percent discount.

Developed by Ubisoft Annecy, Steep is an online multiplayer-focused game allowing players to explore the snow-covered mountains of the Alps and Alaska. You can try sponsored events or just progress through the game to unlock more challenging runs.

Also beginning on March 10, Steep will be 50% off and the Steep Gold Edition will be 40% off through the PlayStation Store, Xbox Games Store, and Ubisoft's Store.
