Ubisoft has released Update 1.04 for Steep. This new update brings a new level of online competitiveness to the game by introducing Steep World Tour Tournament and two new types of Challenges.

Players from around the globe can now sign-up for Steep World Tour Tournament, a brand new monthly tournament series available for the whole community. The first competition, Backcountry, has begun with the qualification phase: a challenge in the cursed mountain for skiers and snowboarders, who will have to reach 5000 points to make it to the 2nd phase. The 32 best players on each platform during the Tournament phase will make it to the finals, where they will confront each other to win Steep credits.

The wildest and the most creative challenges made by the community will be available to all players through the Community Challenges feature. Steep players will be able to compete in order to achieve the highest score, to gain reputation points, and to be on the top leaderboards for each community challenge. The development team will also be creating challenges, so the players can go up against the Steep team themselves and try to beat their scores.

Finally, Ubisoft confirmed that the free Alaska open-world map will be released on February 10th, 2017. This new playground will include the first Branded Challenges which are unique challenges that will reward the fiercest players with Steep credits and reputation points.
