[embedded content] Steep: Road to the Olympics is the first major expansion for Steep and it releases on December 5, 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC, Ubisoft announced today. Here’s the description: Having given players the chance to ski, snowboard, paraglide, and wingsuit around the massive open worlds of the Alps and Alaska, Steep is planning a trip to new locations to take on new challenges in honor of the Pyeongchang 2018 Olympic Winter Games. In partnership with the International Olympic Committee, Steep Road to the Olympics will let players loose in South Korea and Japan to participate in Olympic events and explore gorgeous new environments… It wouldn’t be the Olympics without official Olympic events, so the expansion will include Downhill, Slopestyle, Halfpipe, Giant Slalom, Super G, and Big Air. There will also be some unique challenges to keep things fresh as you choose a country to represent and test your skills against players around the world.

E3 2017 – Ubisoft Announces Steep Extreme Pack DLC

[embedded content] Ubisoft has just announced the Steep Extreme Pack DLC which will add, among other things, three new sporting events to Steep including Rocket Wingsuit, Speed Skiing, and Base Jump. Think you can maneuver through the air at breakneck speeds amongst the mountains? You’ll want to head right for the Rocket Wingsuit events and see if your reflexes are up to the challenge. Maybe you prefer a more leisurely glide across the slopes with an occasional burst of speed to vary things up? Speed Skiing will give you the opportunity to take in the sights as you swiftly glide from area to area before touching down with your skis to gain some speed and show off your skills. Finally, Base Jump will give all thrill seekers a chance to jump from the top of the mountain and enjoy a ripping ride down the cliffside before pulling your ‘chute and safely touching down. The DLC is set for release on June 27, 2017. No word yet on pricing for the the Extreme Pack DLC. We’ll keep updating this post as new information becomes available. In the meantime, check out all our E3 coverage here. READ FULL STORY AT PLAYSTATIONLIFESTYLE!

PSA: Steep’s Free Alaska DLC Has Been Delayed But Here’s a New Teaser

[embedded content] If you weren’t able to download Steep‘s free Alaska DLC yesterday or were planning to do so this weekend, then you might want to note that Ubisoft has delayed the content by two weeks. A very brief announcement was posted on Ubisoft’s blog this past Thursday but it looks like it got buried under the avalanche (no pun intended) of financial reports, betas, and updates on other major releases. The developer wrote: Our teams are always committed to bringing the best experience possible to all players. With this in mind, we are postponing the launch of our Alaska free game update to Feb 24th on PS4, Xbox One and PC. In the meantime, you can watch a new teaser for the update above. Ubisoft recently said that Steep, which released in December 2016, performed “slightly” higher than the company’s expectations. For more on the game, check out our previous coverage.

Ubisoft Delays South Park: The Fractured But Whole Again, Says Steep Exceeded Expectations

Previously delayed from December 2016 to Q1 2017, South Park: The Fractured But Whole has been delayed again and is now releasing in Fiscal Year 2017 – 2018, which runs from April 2017 to March 2018. The news comes from Ubisoft’s financial report for the quarter ending December 31, 2016, where they also said Watch Dogs 2’s launch was “not as dynamic as expected, but momentum now positive.” Steep, meanwhile, had a “slightly higher-than-expected performance.” Elsewhere in the report, Ubisoft said Rainbow Six Siege has 15 million registered players and record Daily Active Users, The Division’s number of Daily Active Users is up 152% since October 24, and the Assassin’s Creed movie is over $213 million worldwide, making it the seventh most successful video game adaptation. Sales for Ubisoft’s third quarter were down 5.7% year-on-year to €529.9 million ($567 million USD), but sales for the first nine months of this fiscal year are up 5.5% to €811.3 million ($868 million USD). Because of the delay to South Park, Ubisoft expects total sales for this fiscal year to drop from around €1.67 billion to €1.5 billion. PlayStation 4 was by far Ubisoft’s biggest platform, with 46% of sales coming through Sony’s console. Xbox One was at 26%, with PC at 13%, and PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, READ…

Games, Franchises, and Experiences We Want in VR

Resident Evil 7 is proving to be quite the virtual reality masterpiece, with 10% of registered players across all platforms choosing to play in PlayStation VR. While playing for our review, I played for eight hours straight in VR, happy that virtual reality is getting longer triple-A experiences. As I was playing, I couldn’t help but think what the success of Resident Evil 7 could be paving the way for in the future of VR. In fact, certain segments within the game sparked ideas for what I wanted to see, setting off the series of ideas you see below. Don’t worry, it’s not just a bunch of horror games I want adapted into VR, though those dark experiences do make up their fair share of the list. We’ve also added some games that are visual masterpieces, as well as experiences that are improved through the intimate immersion of PlayStation VR. With such a fascinating platform, I’m hoping that developers take the initiative to take some risks and continue to develop unique experiences for PlayStation VR. If any developer wants to skim off the ideas we have below, fell free. We here at PlayStation LifeStyle think these would make for stellar READ…
