Steep update 1.19 is now available for players on PS4 and Xbox One. According to the official Steep 1.19 patch notes, the new update has added new Steep PvP multiplayer mode as well as various fixes for crashing, stuttering, game client, and UI bugs. In addition,Steep version 1.19 also includes various bug fixes and gameplay improvements. Previously, a big update was released with new features as well as bug fixes and gameplay changes. Unfortunately, since this update, many players were experiencing a number of issues when trying to play the game. Today’s Steep patch 1.19 is expected to fix all these issues.

You can start the new Steep PvP multiplayer mode by joining the multiplayer lobby in the Mountain View and automatic matchmaking system will group you with up three other players. As soon as everyone is ready, a 5-second timer will appear and count down to the start of the match. When the countdown reaches zero, the competition begins.

You will encounter a series of different challenges in the Alps, linked together through playlists. Every PvP session will start with a randomized playlist. Each playlist includes different challenges with the same theme, such as race, freestyle, rocket wingsuit, and wingsuit. You will compete twice in every challenge before the final winner is decided. The synchronous PvP gameplay also allows for collisions with other players, so pay close attention to your surroundings!

According to the game developers – “Steep is a multiplayer game at its core – you can always seamlessly play with other players. But so far, the moments when you play together with the same objective are rare,” Steep Creative Director Igor Manceau commented. “We’ve been working to find the right combination of cooperative and competitive play, where players can truly play together, at the same moment, and tackle the same dedicated objectives together.”
