Rebellion has released the first chapter in Deathstorm, more campaign-oriented content for Sniper Elite 4 along with some free multiplayer freebies.
Dubbed Inception, the first part of Deathstorm is the opening chapter and mission in the three-part campaign, playable from start to finish for 1-2 players. The events of this new campaign are set after the events of the main game as 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.
Additionally, Rebellion brings the Night Fighter Expansion pack which includes three new weapons, night-time camo rifle skins for eight weapons and new male and female characters skins. But that’s not all! The developer is also releasing a new multiplayer mode, for free, dubbed Elimination along with a free map called Night Woods.
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 out now for PC, PS4 and Xbox One. If you have yet to dip your feet in the Sniper Elite universe, you can read my review right here. Hint: I liked it. A lot.
