Snow has been given a thorough overhaul since its Steam Early Access Debut; hit the break to find out what’s new since we last checked in with the CryEngine-powered sports sim.

The developer-narrated video below goes through the additions in detail, but Blue’s News summarised them as follows:

  • Multiplayer is now available for all users
  • Main Menu updated with new functionality
  • Visual and Gameplay options added to Main Menu
  • Store redesigned
  • Skis now use both left and right graphics
  • You can now customize your character while in-game
  • Session Markers have been implemented
  • New in-air rotation system
  • Rework persistent player profile
  • Improved half-pipe gameplay
  • In-game UI and Spawn Selection have been updated to a new style

Snow has some pretty interesting features; it offers a lot of customisation, and has licensing deals with most major snow sports brands. It was built by a team of just three, is free-to-play, and offers solo and multiplayer events and challenges – or just the free-roaming pleasure of a full-sized mountain.
