The game will allow players to access some of the finest National Parks in the US. These parks will become playgrounds for outdoor sports like including biking, snowboarding, skiing, and wing-suiting.

The devs have been working hard to provide a complete experience to the players. To accomplish this task, the team has been working hard to portray an accurate description of the parks. Additionally, over 50 players can enter the virtual-social space and engage in a wide array of adventure sports.

We wanted to look for the ultimate place for outdoor action sports, and when we thought about it, the choice was clear,” he said. “So, we’re going to the to the US, to the National Parks – the home of the most iconic competitions, memorable stories, and most spectacular action.”

The amalgamation of sports with a location and the ability to interact in that sphere is what would drive players to be a part of Ubisoft’s upcoming title.
