Dear Steep Players,
We’re excited to bring you an important update to Steep! Besides including more types of challenges and a monthly Steep World Tour tournament series, we’ve also added some new features and made improvements to existing ones.
Your feedback is invaluable to us, so please continue to let us know what you think about the game and how we can make it even better!

STEEP WORLD TOUR: TOURNAMENT SERIES – New!
It’s time to get in the competitive spirit! We’re excited to announce the start of the Steep World Tour, a monthly tournament series, coming in Game Update 1.04!

COMMUNITY & DEV CHALLENGES – New!
Community Challenges are all about showing off you, the players! We’ll select the most amazing trail challenges created by players and make them available to the entire community to play and compete against each other. The dev team will also be making an appearance from time to time, so be on the lookout for Dev Challenges so that you can go up against the Steep game designers themselves and try to beat their scores!
More information about Community Challenges can be found in this article: Steep Community Challenges

This game update brings you these new challenges and more! Hear from the Steep team themselves as they talk about these new features available now in Steep:
DIRECTOR MODE (REPLAY) – New!
A Steep Star is born! Now you can put those mad cinematography skills to good use with the new Director Mode that allows players to choose from different camera angles (Free, Follow and Fixed Cam), as well as adjust the ambiance and time of day when capturing that epic moment.
OTHER FEATURE & SYSTEM IMPROVEMENTS
We’ve also made some changes and improvements to other existing features in Steep: improvements and tweaks have been made to Mountain View navigation, camera and HUD; a G-force system with clearer feedback; adjustments to jumping that make it more responsive; and finally some enhancements made to the tricks system.
We’ll let Arnaud Ragot, Game Director on Steep, and Thibaut Zimmer, Community Developer, tell you more about all the good stuff coming your way in our first Gondola Lift Game Update 1.04!

Thanks for playing Steep and see you on the mountain!
