Steep – Freeride World Tour Begins Now

You rule the slopes in Steep. From the Alps to Alaska, there isn’t a run you’ve missed or an inch of powder you haven’t crushed. If you’re ready for a bigger challenge (or just want to see how your skills stack up against everyone else’s), we’ve got good news: qualifiers for the Freeride World Tour have officially started, giving you a chance to test your mettle against other players and prove you have what it takes to be ranked among the world’s best.

From March 17 through March 22, you’ll have the chance to compete in six different challenges, with a new one added every day. If you can make it to the tournament phase (which runs from March 23-27), you’ll be tested by the Steep of Doom challenge, set in the Cursed Mountain region. You’ll need to be exceptional, though, because only the best 32 players on each platform will move on to the finals in Aravis – from March 31 through April 4 – for a shot at claiming the Steep Credits and unique in-game items reserved for the top three contenders on each system.

Those who don’t claim the top spots won’t be left empty-handed, either. Players who make it to the tournament or finals will also be eligible for exclusive prizes, so hit the slopes and make your mark.
