What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“Early Access allows SNOW to reach its audience sooner and improve the core game through community feedback.”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“SNOW will remain in Early Access until it launches fully after the Open Beta period. At that point SNOW will be nearly feature complete with all intended content and gameplay available to the users.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“The full version of SNOW will be a more complete experience having player progression, competitive game modes and a fully-featured multiplayer experience.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

SNOW is currently in a Closed Beta. This means that many features are still in development and the game's controls and core gameplay have not been completed. SNOW will be entering Open Beta in early 2016.

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“SNOW will transition into a fully free-to-play game during the Early Access. During Closed Beta users will have the option to either sign up and receive a free invitation to the game, or skip the queue and purchase immediate access via the Steam Store.”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“SNOW's community feedback is a key component to SNOW's development. Especially in this early state, understanding what features the community wants in SNOW will shape it's long-term development.”

Early Access Review
DO NOT SPEND MONEY ON THIS. This game use to be good, when it first came out on early access. I even paid for the founders pack. the physics, speed, and style of this game are not there anymore. Micro transactions are the meaning of this game now. For example, i would log in when i first got it, and have 20 different styles of jackets. Now i have two, and one of those are from the founders pack. But if i spend 1699 in game credit, i get one outfit with a set of skii's. I use to spend hours on one part of the mountain, trying to see what i could acomplish on that section. Now i cant even stand playing the game for a few minutes without getting bored. This game may be good for someone looking to throw money at a company. But someone who has been following the game since the beginning, just like many others sadly might want to do too, i have to give it a 1/10. As for now, this game will just be one of many i scroll past looking for a game to put time into, and not money.

Early Access Review
SNOW is a BEAUTIFUL Skiing game where you ski around a mountain. It may encounter a few glitches BUT it is in an early state so all will (Hopefully) be fixed. The multiplayer is fun to ski with friends, and just playing alone is lovely. There are even events to challenge your skiing skills! I reccomend this to purchase access into this Closed State or you could wait as it will be F2P!

Early Access Review
Still needs lots of work but has potential

+ Graphics (not amazing but not bad either)
+ Soundtrack
+ Menu layout
+ Can be fun after a little training
+ Crashes look very funny

- Needs better controlls and automatic gamepad support
- Lacks the excitement of other games of the genre

Early Access Review
Only on Steam, the best open world skiing game.

-Character Customisation, You can also earn Credits to buy things in the store by just playing the game.
-You can ride everywhere you want with no limits, riding down the woods? no problem in this game!
-The Soundtrack fits perfect to the game
-Realistic Soundeffects - Graphics could be better
-Quite good Keyboard Controls
-Use the Drone, thats in your inventory to look what you are going into

I am missing:

-Female Character
-A climbing mode, where you can get to the top of mountains - freeriding, like Jeremy Jones or Xavier de le Rue or Johan Olofsson. The Movie Deeper will explain, what i mean.
-Weather changes

Early Access Review
-Sweet graphics
-A big mountain with several smaller maps
-Solid skiing mechanics

-People that didnt read before buying

I got real interested in this game when I first heard about it years ago. A f2p mmo snow-sports game. My main interest was its odd combination of the genres along with a curiosity for how the f2p model would look. Obviously there would be cosmetics, but will there be passes to ski down certain mountains and enter tournaments? Most likely.

In its current state it feels very "in-developement" in lack of ways to describe it, which can make it feel empty at times, but I check in every now and then and its a slow but steady process of improvements. With that said, the game is solid enough to have fun with.
