Ubisoft released STEEP Update 1.04 on Friday and with it came the announcement of free DLC coming on the 10th February 2017.
The update includes tweaks to jumping accuracy, improved mountain view display, community challenges, director mode and more customisation items. It also marked the start of the STEEP World Tour event
A monthly competition series that begins today with an event called Backcountry. Starting with a race on the cursed mountain, the qualifier will challenge players to score 5,000 points in order to stay in the competition, and finals will begin in early February.
The free DLC comes in the form of the addition of Alaska which not only brings a new map, it includes its own events.
The full list of changes in the update read:
- Tweaks to jumping accuracy
- Scaled back the destructiveness of G-force impacts
- Improved the Mountain View display
- Welcome Dashboard – Displays the most important in-game news and suggests content for players’ current game session.
- Live Page – Provides more info on the Steep World Tour and current series going on, as well as which Community Challenges are available to play.

- Community Challenges – Challenges made by the Community, for the Community! Selected trail challenges created by the community will be highlighted and made available to all players as a Community Challenge to beat. Look for them in the new Live Page!
- New Customization Items – Shhh… they’re a surprise! More will be revealed in due time.
- Director Mode – Provides more freedom and Replay Mode options (such as camera types and ambience) for players to get even more creative in their replay videos.
