Ubisoft’s mountain sports game, STEEP has unlocked for many but those launching the game are blocked from playing, at least for a while longer. According to the Official Twitter, the game servers aren’t live for another few hours.

Currently, players trying to launch the game are faced with a server error DE-014-01.
This isn’t just poor planning or bad decision making by Ubisoft by having a game unlock on digital channels ahead of the servers being available but it also means that the game is always online. Unable to bypass the error and the only option on the Menu being to connect means the endless loop prevents you from even getting on the mountain in solo play. This also means that owners of the game will have to get used to the music on the Main Menu screen.
