E3 2016 has come and gone, but we still have a few last goodies that came out of the convention to check out for the weekend.
First up was a bit of a curve ball at the end of Ubisoft’s presentation. Instead of their usual games such as For Honor, Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon: Wildlands, and Watch Dogs 2, they introduced a new kind of open world game titled Steep, which exchanges the fighting and shooting and hacking for the world of action sports.
A trailer and gameplay demo for the game have been released, and you can head below now to see how it looks.
Defy and master the world’s most epic mountains on skis, wingsuit, snowboard, and in paraglide. Go solo or drop in side by side with other players. Record and share the most insane stunts ever captured. Dare your friends to try out your custom lines, then challenge the world to beat your best tricks and relive your most epic wipeouts. The mountain is yours to explore. So strap in, suit up, and drop in.
