SNOW Gets Early Access Updates


I know what you’re thinking. We’re in the middle of winter, so snow is hardly in Early Access. It’s right on time, snarling traffic and keeping kids home from school.

Ah, but we’re talking about “SNOW” in all caps, the free-to-play, open-world skiing and snowboarding game powered by CryEngine technology and currently in Early Access on Steam. The full release is still TBA, but the game has received a host of updates even in its current form.

Specifically, multiplayer has been implemented for all users, characters can be customized in-game, the menus have been jazzed up, the store has been redesigned, and the gameplay received a number of tweaks.

It’s a timely batch of updates too, seeing as the eyes of the world are about to be on snow sports for the Winter Games in Sochi in just a few weeks. You can keep an eye on what else is in store for “SNOW” on its official Tumblr, which features a blog by the debs at Poppermost Productions.

And because we’re about showing as well as telling, here’s a look at the latest trailer that goes into more detail on what’s new on the slopes:
