Ubisoft announces Steep esports tournament

Henry Stenhouse spent his younger life studying the laws of physics, even going so far as to complete a PhD in the subject before video game journalism stole his soul. You'll find Henry chugging along the news train most days, throwing out features into the wild and finding any excuse possible to talk about esports when he can.

Formerly of the freelance life, Henry held such esteemed (read: imaginary) titles as PC Gamer's go-to CS:GO freelancer, and has been smitten with the competitive shooter life since growing up on the slopes of Dust2.

Henry's experience culminated in his role as AllGamer's premium FPS player, meaning he's won at least a single game of PUBG, we promise. Henry is also a fan of all things Nintendo and strategy, and still can't get over just how good Breath of the Wild is.

If you'd like to send Henry free stuff (he'll take a Vive Pro, thanks) contact him via email at henry.stenhouse@allgamers.com or catch him on Twitter, here.

For the skilled snowboarders among you.

Ubisoft has announced a Steep esports tournament titled Road to the Olympics.

Players will be able to compete in online qualifiers on the Slalom leaderboards until January 8, where the top players will be invited to compete in a Grand Finals event on January 27 at the ESL Studio Katowice, Poland.

The grand prize for the event? Not what you might expect from an esports tournament, Ubisoft is offering tickets to the PyeongChang Olympic Winter Games in 2018 to watch the opening ceremony unfold

Qualifiers will take a bit of an unusual format too, with one player invited from each platform (PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One) so if you’ve got hopes to go, you’ll need to be the very best on your platform of choice.

The Grand Finals will challenge the top three to complete in two disciplines, Slopestyle on the snowboard, and Downhill skiing. The best player from each will win tickets to the Olympic Winter Games opening ceremony.
