Here’s a surprise for Sniper Elite fans, the first story expansion for Sniper Elite 4 is out next week. Deathstorm, the first premium story expansion releases on March 21.
This mission is set after the events of the main game and pits Karl Fairburne against the Nazis and the Manhattan Project. In addition to Deathstorm, the Night Fighter Expansion Pack brings three new weapons, a new night-time camo for use on eight weapons and new male and female character skins. Also comes a new multiplayer mode, Elimination, releases on the same day.
Elimination is a two team mode for up to 12 player that plays like a lethal game of dodge ball. You kill an enemy player and they have to sit out but if their team kills one of yours, they can tag back in one of theirs. This is a hefty amount of content for Sniper Elite 4 fans that this writer is certainly looking forward to.
The first chapter in DEATHSTORM, a BRAND NEW mini-campaign for SNIPER ELITE®4, launches March 21st, 2017 on PlayStation®4, Xbox One and PC. It headlines a glut of new content coming to the game on Tuesday, including FREE multiplayer add-ons!
DEATHSTORM PART 1: INCEPTION is the opening chapter and mission in the three-part campaign, playable from start to finish for 1-2 players. Set after the events of the main game, the first chapter takes players to the colder terrain of northern Italy, and a Nazi naval base recently targeted in a bombing run.
With imposing scaffolding, a German destroyer and myriad Kriegsmarine soldiers to negotiate, Karl Fairburne must help finish what the bombing run started. But his primary mission concerns the secret Manhattan Project: To retrieve a critical, mysterious package codenamed Deathstorm.
The new SNIPER ELITE®4 content doesn’t end there; The NIGHT FIGHTER EXPANSION PACK also arrives on March 21st, It includes three new weapons, night-time camo rifle skins for eight weapons and new male and female characters skins.
Multiplayer fans, meanwhile, can look forward to ELIMINATION, a brand new mode that also drops on March 21st, and it’s FREE.
This two-team mode for up to 12 players is all about trying to whittle down your opponent’s numbers. If you kill an enemy player, they’re forced to sit out on the sidelines. But if their team kills one of your teammates, they tag back in one of their sidelined comrades. In Elimination, all is not lost, even when you’re 1 v 6.
SNIPER ELITE®4 players are getting their first FREE multiplayer map on March 21st too, called NIGHT WOODS. As previously pledged by Rebellion, ALL additional multiplayer maps and modes for the game will be FREE.
Rebellion have also released a provisional roadmap for upcoming content, which you can find on SniperElite4.com
