Steep season 12 is now live and tasks players with sneaking into enemy territory

Steep is a game about winter sports. Snowboarding, skiing, wingsuit flying around mountains. Steep is not generally considered as a game that has enemies and stealth missions, but that changes with Steep’s season 12 which brings in the Active Descent System. In the main event, players are tasked with getting some intelligence in an enemy area without being detected. The trailer doesn’t give too much away except for the operator gear you may get.

There will be a number of challenges going live this November as well and they are listed below.

We have 6 new challenges for you to test your skills:

  • Week of Nov. 12
