Sniper Elite 4: Deathstorm Part 1: Inception Launches March 21st; Free Multiplayer Content Coming as Well
Last Week, developer Rebellion Developments provided a post-launch content roadmap for its recently released tactical shooter: Sniper Elite 4. Now, the developer has announced that the first wave of that content will arrive on March 21st for PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
The first wave, titled Deathstorm Part 1: Inception includes, the opening chapter and mission in the game’s new three-part mini campaign that comes with a completely new storyline for 1-2 players. Here’s a brief description of the opening mission:
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 Night Fighter Expansion Pack will also arrive on March 21st: it includes three new weapons, night-time camo rifle skins for eight weapons, and new male and female character skins. Both the Night Fighter Expansion Pack and Deathstorm Part 1: Inception are included in the Season Pass of the game, or are available as individual purchases. How much both of these will cost, was not divulged.
Sniper Elite 4 is also getting some free content as well. This will come in the form of some new multiplayer content (which will always be free). More specifically, players will be getting a new mode called Elimination. The following overview of Elimination is provided:
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.
A free multiplayer map is coming as well, called Night Woods.
Sniper Elite 4 is available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Below, you can check out the newly released screenshots for the upcoming content (the last two show off the new map, while the first six show off the new campaign mission):
