EDDIE THE EAGLE PLAYS ‘STEEP’ in Wind Tunnel

Posted by TurtleGirl On November - 29 - 2016

Ubisoft has announced  Eddie ‘The Eagle’ Edwards flew into the record books once again this week, becoming the first person to successfully play a videogame in a vertical wind tunnel at 90mph. Check out the incredible achievement in the video below.
 


 

Ubisoft set out to put an extreme winter sports fan to the test by tasking them to play upcoming videogame, STEEP, whilst balancing themselves in mid-air. Boasting an undeniable sporting prowess and his well-documented determination… Eddie did not disappoint.
 

Eddie completed this unique challenge, finishing in the medal positions, whilst competing against two pro skydivers, who also attempted to complete the STEEP challenge alongside the national treasure.
 

The challenge was an in-game wingsuit race on Mont Blanc – just one of many exhilarating locations in STEEP. It’s no walk in the park… especially whilst flying through the air.
 

Eddie previously achieved hero status in the late eighties, when he became a British ski jumping world record holder and Britain’s first representative in the Olympic sport since 1929.
 

When asked about taking on the STEEP challenge, Eddie said: “I couldn’t wait to give it go. I love a challenge but this was unlike anything that I’d ever tried before. As soon as I started playing, I was determined to glide past that finishing line.”
 

Tom Goldberger, Senior PR Manager at Ubisoft, said: “When we first developed the concept of playing a videogame in a wind tunnel, we instantly knew that there was only one person that we could call to take on the STEEP challenge. Along with being a British icon and an absolute gent, Eddie stunned us all by not only mastering the challenge, but landing himself in the medals table too.
 

STEEP will be released this Friday on Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
