Has anyone seen a list of the confirmed alpine peaks to be included with the Alps portion of the base game? Not sure if anyone compiled something. It would be interesting to see what is in so far. Most Blanc, Matterhorn, and Monte Rosa are a few.

Confirmed Peaks as of August 26, 2016

Alps Region

France:
Mont Blanc
"Mont Blanc (French pronunciation: ​[mɔ̃ blɑ̃]) or Monte Bianco (Italian pronunciation: [ˈmonte ˈbjaŋko]), both meaning "White Mountain", is the highest mountain in the Alps and the highest in Europe after the Caucasus peaks. It rises 4,808.73 m (15,777 ft) above sea level and is ranked 11th in the world in topographic prominence."
Grand Jorasses
"The Grandes Jorasses (4,208 m; 13,806 ft), is a mountain in the Mont Blanc massif, on the boundary between Haute-Savoie in France and Aosta Valley in Italy." Wikipedia
Monte Lupre (reference unknown - France?) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-YCCwduBKYs (6:41)
Aguille Verte https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-YCCwduBKYs (8:24)
"The Aiguille Verte, which is French for "Green Needle", is a mountain in the Mont Blanc massif in the French Alps" Wikipedia
Chamonix Aguilles (generic name, actual Aguilles in game unknown) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yjsJs_5Z2pc (5:40)
Saut Du Barrage (roughly corresponds with a peak known as Aiguille de la Grande Sassière) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jpt4MwC6bJQ (8:50)
Aravis Range https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yjsJs_5Z2pc (7:20)
"The Aravis (French: Chaîne des Aravis) is a mountain range in Savoie and Haute-Savoie, eastern France. It is part of the French Prealps, a lower chain of mountain ranges west of the main chain of the Alps. Its highest summit is the Pointe Percée, at 2753m. The orientation of the Aravis is north-south, and it stretches from Cluses in the north, to Ugine in the south. "
Pointe Percee' https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YGOu-raM25k (1:20)
"The Pointe Percée is the highest mountain in the Aravis range of the French Prealps in Haute-Savoie. It rises to 2753 meters and has 1643 m of prominence, and is thus is classified as an ultra prominent peak." Wikipedia
Grand Pointe Blanche (could be Dent Blanche?) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YGOu-raM25k (3:10)
La Grande Balmaz https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YGOu-raM25k (3:10)
"Grande Balmaz is a mountain of Savoie and Haute-Savoie, France. It lies in the Aravis Range and has an elevation of 2,616 metres above sea level"
Tête du Colonney (please correct this one. It appears for a brief moment as the player lands and the letters can not be read fully) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YGOu-raM25k (3:10)
Tête du Danay Peak within the Aravis range. Sourced from closed beta video.

Switzerland:
Matterhorn
"The Matterhorn (German pronunciation: [ˈmatərˌhɔrn]) or Monte Cervino (Italian pronunciation: [ˈmonte tʃerˈviːno]), also known in French as Mont Cervin is a mountain of the Alps, straddling the main watershed and border between Switzerland and Italy. It is a huge and near-symmetrical pyramidal peak in the Monte Rosa area of the Pennine Alps, whose summit is 4,478 metres (14,692 ft) high, making it one of the highest summits in the Alps and Europe." Wikipedia
Monte Rosa https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YGOu-raM25k (1:20)
"The Monte Rosa (or synonymously used as a pleonasm: Monte Rosa massif (Italian: massiccio del Monte Rosa; German: Monte Rosa-Massiv; French: massif du Mont Rose) is a mountain massif located in the eastern part of the Pennine Alps. It is located between Switzerland (Valais) and Italy (Piedmont and Aosta Valley). Monte Rosa is the second highest mountain in the Alps and western Europe" Wikipedia

Italy/Austria:
Tyrol region (Actual peaks unknown) https://youtu.be/EhzzvyC7cf4 (4:38)
Ortles (Ortler) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YGOu-raM25k (1:24)
"Ortler is, at 3,905 m above sea level, the highest mountain in the Eastern Alps outside the Bernina Range. It is the main peak of the Ortler Range" Wikipedia

I think Eiger Mönch Jungfrau in Switzerland is very likely. The building on the Jungfraujoch is seen in one trailer...

We still don't know the extent of the map. Some Tyrol region just came out.. we know the Matterhorn is out there.. can't wait for the full map reveal :D

It would be strange to have the Eiger and not have climbing...

We know Mont Blanc is in game (of course). With the Mont Blanc Aguilles being in the demo versions already, has anyone seen Mont Maudit? Weisshorn?

They might adjust the south face to be skiable. Also it would make a great challenge to ski or board the north face....

I'm starting to put a list together now. The strange thing is some of the names I'm seeing on the peaks and areas don't match up with real life place names. Some are close such as Monte Verde could be Aguille Verte? Others like Aravis, Switzerland are a little tougher to decipher. Maybe there are some that relate to local names for places, peaks, or features. The downside is the resolution on some of the posted YouTube videos is low and the peak names appear gray and hazy over the background.

From what I've seen only the west face is skiiable and only by true maniacs! The south face of the Eiger is pretty much vertical. For some reason I'm having a hard time finding any record of anyone climbing the south face. Check out Uli Steck's Eiger north face speed record video. Near the end when he is running across the final section of ridge you can see how steep the south face is.

Are there any swiss peaks even shown in videos yet?
The map is cut together so Aravis is next to Matterhorn or smth like that. But I agree. If you look at the Gameplay Walktrough from E3 you can see "Pointe Helbronner" when they show mountain view. The Aiguilles are on the other side of the Mont Blanc though.

Might aswell be the west face, I didn't look at a compass when I was up there... If it's only skiiable for maniacs that can be great since it would make it a great challenge ingame. Also Paraglider and wingsuit might be good on this peak then.

Hello all,

the world is populated with close to 100 initial drop zones to which players will progressively gain access as they are exploring the world of Steep.

Thanks,

Thought you might be interested in that one ;)

Here. Go to 4:38 for a Tyrol Freedride..

At the risk of offending any Austrians out there, why Tyrol? There are so many classic alpine 4,000m peaks you could put in game.

Anyways, still working on the list but does anyone know what Aravis could mean? I can't find any real world reference to it. Also I am going to revise the original post to include all the known peaks I have so far. If anyone has any to add, please put an interview or video reference below.

100 initial drop zones .... good news! Will unlock all of them the real and honest way by hiking there! No binoculars or teleporting. You put foot on a dropzone's ground, you deserve it. You don't, you don't. First Alps, then Alaska!

Will open thread with route taken for each dropzone and time. Will measure it by starting any event in the valley, then unstrap boards/ski and start hiking to create the trail. Will post achievement photo for each dropzone.

It might take a lot longer than you think to get to the drop zones by walking. There are a few key points in the game that I might try to climb to, but not sure if I can stick with it to hike to most of them. The Matterhorn will be a prize climb for many aspiring Steep players! If you find any new peaks in your travels around the web or YouTube, let me know here.

I've added some more peaks to the list. So far there is no gameplay of anyone on the Matterhorn. Maybe it is locked at the moment? There was most definitely two different builds for E3 and GC as the dropzones are named after that particular show...

Anyways, if anyone can clarify the new peaks in France as I can't find full references that would be a huge help.

Also, please tell me that the Weisshorn and Zinalrothorn are the two peaks sitting behind Matterhorn in mountain view. They can't really scroll over there yet so it has yet to be confirmed.

If this game got together with the makers of a VR climbing game it would inevitably be the best mountain VR game that has ever been made. This game can make mountain climbing a new path for VR and all snow sports in one. If you add ice, then this game becomes the most expansive mountaineering game ever made. All you have to do is add ice assets to the surfaces of rock and you have a steep digital world changing new layer. Boards, skis, and shoes all will react differently. Spikes and picks on shoes/hands will also have impact. Traditional climbing tools will quickly be relevant and the expansive meta inside of these tools will be valuable. I have always thought and said this game has amazing potential. Build a mountain and someone will climb it ;)

@Fruitarian: Found it after the original post. The Aravis range is listed above. I'm hoping that the final Alps map has more of the iconic 4,000m peaks. I bookmarked the map that you posted. Point Percee' is already in game. Will have to confirm eventually which of the others made it.

@Trials: Yup, added above. I believe Saut Du Barrage is a region in game. There is a peak Aiguille de la Grande Sassière which is just outside of it.

If you guys find any others, please let me know and I can update this.

Great thread K, they ought to release a full map..

One update.. I think Tête du Colonney is actually Tete du Danay.

Maybe someone can confirm that name. I based some of the peak names off of some pretty sketchy YouTube video caps of the game. Thae peak name appeared for maybe a second or two while a guy was landing. The tag resolution in the clip was rough and I had to pause/unpause several times to make out what I could.

Please remember that if you're participating in the Closed Alpha, you are under an NDA and as such can not discuss anything pertaining to the Alpha publicly. If you'd like to report a bug or give a suggestion please head over to the Closed Alpha Forum. If you do not know where that is and would like help, please contact me directly or create a post requesting assistance. Thank you!

Technically I've not signed an NDA and therefore able to post about it. Still waiting on confirmation of the full map pending release to really flesh out the list and tie these places into their real life counterparts.

Added Tete Du Danay from the closed beta. Unfortunately a lot of points of interest do not spawn in closed beta so it's hard to dd to the already known peak list.

Do you plan on using the paraglider or wingsuit to help?

Those are the fastest options but I'm hoping they make hiking, climbing, and mountaineering more viable in the finished product.
