Today, Ubisoft announced that Winterfest, another content DLC for Steep, is now available for season pass and gold edition owners on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and Windows. The Winterfest add-on is also available for purchase separately for those of you slumming it on the standard edition.
After tackling the Alps and Alaska on skis, snowboards, wingsuits and paragliders, Winterfest owners will be able to race down the slopes on a winter sled. Winterfest will also give players the ability to take part in the craziest winter sports festival ever.
The start of the in-game Winterfest festival heralds the arrival of the most chilling yeti boss living in the Alps: The Beast, the veritable king of Winterfest. To take over his throne, players will make their way through 21 wacky challenges, such as flying through the air hunting balloons in wingsuits, evading enemy fire while hurtling down the mountain at breakneck speeds, and even taking on the guise of a goat-eating dinosaur. As they take on crazier feats than ever before, players will have to beat four mini-bosses on their way to the final challenge: A boss battle against the king himself.
The Winterfest festival also brings more crazy costumes and equipment to the world of Steep. Winterfest owners will be able to access exclusive Winterfest-themed costumes and equipment, including a dinosaur costume, banana costume, sumo suit, swimsuit, and a superhero costume. The in-game shop will also be updated to include new costumes and equipment available to all players.
Yeah, this update is a bit beyond me, but then, I never totally got the Steep community myself. But hey, enjoy our virtual selfie fodder while it lasts.
