CryEngine-Based SNOW Has Entered Open Beta

Just in case you’re not already aware, Poppermost Productions has been working on a brand new open world, winter sports game named SNOW, which has recently entered a free-to-play open beta phase on the PC platform. SNOW was created using CryEngine, and it now features free-roam multiplayer as well as competitive events, leaderboards and a large mountain that includes 20 areas just waiting to be discovered. As you can probably imagine, being a free-to-play game, the developers are relying on cosmetic item stores as a way to make a profit, but it’s also worth mentioning that players will be able to purchase access to premium events that offer unique rewards.

Right now, the team is working on implementing snowboarding and snowmobiles into the game, which will be unveiled soon enough in the Open Beta. From what I’ve seen so far, the game certainly needs some more work as far as animations and physics are concerned, but I’m confident that things will improve over time. The CEO over at Poppermost, Alexander Bergendahl, has stated the following:

“Open beta is a huge leap forward in fulfilling SNOW’s promise of a fun and authentic sporting and exploration experience that’s totally yours to do with as you please, alone or with friends. Now the lifts are open to the whole world. Winter is finally here!”

You can try out SNOW on Steam right now.
