Ubisoft has revealed that its upcoming Olympic Winter Games-themed expansion for Steep, Road to the Olympics, will feature a new story mode.
The story will take players on a journey through the world of freestyle competition as they work their way up to qualify for Olympic competition and strive for gold in Big Air, Half Pipe, and Slopestyle events, according to Ubisoft. During the story, players will be able to get tips and insights from real Olympians, including Lindsey Vonn, Bode Miller, Sage Kotsenburg, and more.
As well as the story mode, players can also compete in new Giant Slalom, Slalom, Super-G, Downhill, Parallel Giant Slalom, Halfpipe, Snowboard Cross, Slopestyle, Big Air, Ski Halfpipe, Ski Cross, and Ski Slopestyle events for medals and a place on the leaderboards on several new South Korean slopes.
“Road to the Olympics also introduces an expansive new massif set in Japan, where multiple new peaks loom over slopes dotted with temples and cherry blossom forests,” Ubisoft added. “Players can cut loose and take on a ton of new challenges while enjoying the new rail-grind mechanic and, of course, the deep powder that Japanese slopes are famous for.”
Steep Road to the Olympics is scheduled to launch December 5th for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Players who are yet to pick up the game can purchase the Steep Winter Games Edition, which bundles the base game with the expansion in one handy package.
