Steep Update Allows DLC Activities to Be Bought With In-Game Currency, Improves Gameplay & More

Ubisoft is rolling out a new patch for Steep, across all platforms. The patch introduces the opportunity to perform a lot more tricks while grinding, including: Rotations, Nose press and Tail press. You can also combine rotations with both Nose and Tail press, and more.

In addition to this, you can now purchase Steep DLC activities (Sled, Rocket wingsuit, Speed Riding, Base jump) with in-game credits.
