Steep Gameplay: How to Ride Like a Pro

11/07/2016 10:00 AM

The open-world mountain of Steep offers endless opportunities for competition. Other players are everywhere, giving you chances to outperform their tricks, outscore them on their own runs, and outrace them in downhill competitions. If the thrill of speeding past your opponents and claiming gold is what gets your blood pumping, you might find yourself building a reputation as a Pro Rider.

Everything you do in Steep earns you a score in one of the game's six playstyles. Successfully executed tricks earn you Freestyler points, for example, while smooth runs improve your Freerider score. The Pro Rider style, meanwhile, focuses purely on racing, rewarding those who embrace speed and consistently surge to the front of the pack. Earning the best scores in timed and competitive challenges builds your Pro Rider score, gradually identifying you to other players as a formidable racer.

A successful Pro Rider isn't focused solely on speed, either. With so many trees, boulders, buildings, and other environmental features dotting the Alps, being able to weave precisely through obstacles is the key to finishing first. The challenges you'll face reflect this, as tactical races challenge you to find the best route from start to finish, and checkpoint races push you to follow an exacting line as closely as possible.

If you've got what it takes, you'll have a chance to prove it across all of Steep's sports, carving unbeatable lines on skis or a snowboard, rocketing past opponents in a wingsuit, or catching just the right updraft to pull ahead while paragliding. Chances to win gold medals are everywhere, whether you're testing yourself against up to three other players at once or beating "ghost" racers, and those who can take first consistently will climb Steep's rankings quickly.

There are lots of ways to play Steep, and a Pro Rider can expertly use them all to come out on top, no matter the challenge. Are your skills up to it? There's only one way to find out, and you can get started when Steep arrives in December.
