Ubisoft goes 'Steep' at E3

LOS ANGELES, Calif. – For its next open-world game, Ubisoft is combining collaborative multiplayer action with snowy extreme sports.

The video game publisher capped off its Electronic Entertainment Expo presentation Monday with a look at “Steep.” The game will set players loose on a virtual rendition of the Alps where they can ski, paraglide and drive off mountain cliffs.

It’s a topic the game’s creators know well. The development of “Steep” is being led by Ubisoft’s studio at the base of the Alps in Annecy, France.

Ubisoft also showcased the superhero-themed “South Park: The Fractured But Whole,” virtual reality starship simulator “Star Trek: Bridge Crew,” open-world tactical shooter “Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon Wildlands,” and hand-to-hand battle game “For Honor.”
