Some fans who saw the content in the Steep Season Pass were disappointed. With an additional US$20, players can buy the Steep Gold Edition which comes with the season pass. Ubisoft is offering costumes, in-game credit, and snowboards in the Season Pass. What caught the attention of some gamers is that Ubisoft is also offering new sports which includes Rocket Wings, Base Jump, Speed Gliding, and Winter Sled. Players on NeoGAF feel that the company is breaking their promises as they seem to have held back some content in the retail game.
Previously, Ubisoft said they are changing their DLC model in order to make all players get the full experience. The company claimed that after the Rainbow Six Siege release, the company will follow the game’s DLC release pattern for its upcoming titles. But now that they announced the Steep Season Pass content, it seems that the company has forgotten what they said earlier this year.
It’s worth noting that Ubisoft has not added any paid maps in the Season Pass. This comes as a disappointment for some as the Season Pass doesn’t look attractive to customers because of this omission. But at the same time, doing so will anger players as they will feel that game developers are holding back content in order to cash-in on them.
Overall, most players are not happy with the Steep Season Pass content, meaning that Ubisoft has failed to justify the price of the Gold Edition. While the decision of not splitting the playerbase is undoubtedly good, fans expect that the company shouldn’t compromise the quality of its paid content.
