Steep: Australians won’t be able to play online until 7pm AEDT tonight
Or is that launch evening?
Ubisoft Australia today confirmed that Steep‘s servers will go online pretty late into the game’s launch day.
Those in Australia can expect online functionality from 7.00 pm AEDT on launch day, this Friday, 2 December.
“We have communicated publicly about Steep’s servers going live worldwide on December 2nd at 9am CET through our Ubiblog as well as on community forums,” Ubisoft said in a statement to Stevivor.
“Steep operates on one worldwide server per platform which will go live at 9am CET on December 2nd. In order to ensure a fun experience with a larger pool of online players from day one, Steep servers will open worldwide once it is day time in Europe, so players from Asia to Europe will populate Steep’s immense open world at launch.
“As a consequence, players in Australia and New Zealand will only hit the slopes from 7pm AEDT on launch day. We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may cause and can’t wait for everyone to discover the world of Steep.”
Steep will be available — late in the day — on 2 December for Xbox One, PS4 and Windows PC. As review code will be sent out on launch day, expect our thoughts in the days following launch.
