Love watching amazing stunts recorded by fearless people with skis, snowboards or even wingsuits? Don't have the guts to do all those things yourself? Ubisoft wants to give you the power to experience some of the very same experiences without all the danger with the aid of GoPro in the form of their latest project Steep.

Steep is essentially a virtual playground for those who dig snow sports. Players will be able to navigate the mountain playgrounds of the Alps using four different and unique methods of traversal: ski, wingsuit, snowboard or paraglide.

There are droves of hidden spots and various areas to uncover as you explore the snowy terrain, all spread throughout the Alps. To keep things as realistic and immersive as possible, the game also utilizes various GoPro perspectives including footage from actual GoPro cameras and several potential new products.

While playing, you'll be able to meet and follow other players or gather friends to pull off some stunts, even mixing different sports to record some truly insane tricks. If you fly solo, you can take on a series of challenges like Big Air, Proximity Flying or Forest Slaloms to prove to the rest of the world you're not to be trifled with.

When you've done something truly share-worthy, you can send your feats to your friends via social media. You can choose the pace, camera angle and even speed to capture your run, which becomes uniquely yours.

Steep will be releasing for Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
