Greentube brings back Ski Challenge as an all-new esports title

Novomatic-owned GREENTUBE is teaming up with Swiss-Ski, the Austrian Ski and the German Ski Federation, to bring back its Ski Challenge game this Autumn. 

The winter sports app captures players competing in races for the best times on real-world-inspired ski racing tracks across various online events, tournaments and challenges.

The new esports game, which will include suit and gear customisation and other features, also grants players access to tracks from the skiing world including brand new ones that haven’t been part of the game before.

The all-new return of the Ski Challenge franchise is planned to operate the game all year long and not only during the skiing season. Additionally, new features and tracks will be added after the launch. The original Ski Challenge game was Greentube’s first-ever gaming title when it hit the market in 1998.

Ski Challenge established itself as a legendary title when it was available to play on desktop,” said Greentube’s  CFO/CGO Michael Bauer. “We are more than happy to not only announce the return of this popular game, but it’s very exciting to be able to bring it back as a true esports mobile app, to players old and new. Especially since we can do so with key partners in winter sports. The updated version is packed with special features that the community is certain to love and we have some very ambitious plans for the franchise in the future.”

Swiss-Ski director marketing & deputy CEO Diego Züger commented: “We have seen just how popular Ski Challenge has proven to be with players in the past and it’s fantastic to be able to introduce the game to a new audience. Greentube has done a great job capturing the excitement of the sport and it has been a privilege being a part of the game’s development.”

Austrian Ski Federation secretary general Christian Scherer added: “It is a tricky task to create a game that is as fast-paced and thrilling as downhill skiing, but that is exactly what Greentube have managed to do. We are sure players all over the world will react positively to this new title that allows them to experience the fascination of sport so realistic and enables us to reach new target groups.”

German Ski Federation CEO Stefan Schwarzbach also added: “Having been a part of the development of Ski Challenge, it is very gratifying to see a final product that is as polished and compelling as this is. We are happy to have partnered with the Federations from Austria and Switzerland to help deliver a game that we believe will prove to be a success worldwide.”
