Ubisoft's new open-world skiing, snowboarding, and gliding title Steep has today been given an official release date of 2nd December. Initially believed to be set solely in the Alps, the company has also revealed that the game is set to expand following its launch.

While Alaskan slopes will be a free addition as part of a post-launch update, Ubisoft has also revealed a Season Pass will be available, which will accompany the $79.99 Gold Edition of the game. What that will equate to in British Pounds is anyone's guess at this point, although it's unlikely to be a forgiving translation. Steep by name, steep by nature...

A beta for the game will also be available at some point later this year. You can register over on the game's website.
