Sniper Elite 4: Deathstorm Part 1: Inception Out Today; Launch Trailer Released

Last Week, developer Rebellion Developments announced that the first wave of its post-launch content was set to release for PS4, Xbox One, and PC on March 21, 2017.

Most notable of the content is the opening chapter and mission in the game’s new three-part mini campaign that comes with a completley new storyline for 1-2 players, titled Deathstorm Part 1: Inception. Here’s a description of the mission, which costs $6.99 USD/is included with the Season Pass:

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 also arrives today: it includes three new weapons, night-time camo rifle skins for eight weapons, and new male and female character skins. This costs $7.99 USD/is included with the Season Pass.

Sniper Elite 4 is getting some free content today as well. This comes in the form of  some new multiplayer content, more specifically: a new mode called Elimination and a new map called Night Woods.

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.

Sniper Elite 4 is available for PS4, Xbox One, and PC. Below, you can check out the newly released Deathstorm Part 1: Inception launch trailer:
