As summer draws to an end, Sniper Elite 3 doesn't show any signs of stopping! This week alone we've had console updates, DLC releases, new maps and new game modes!
So instead of bombarding you all with 10 different blog posts, we thought we'd give you a summary of everything Sniper Elite related this week. Just like an elite sniper, you won't miss a thing!
Final mission, NEW multiplayer mode and FREE multiplayer update now live on Steam
Today (September 18th) announced the launch of three new pieces of DLC for Sniper Elite 3 on Steam for PC, with the content due to come to Playstation 4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and Playstation 3 in the near future.
The Final Showdown
Save Churchill Part 3: Confrontation is the final episode and conclusion to the explosive Save Churchill campaign for Sniper Elite 3, featuring the largest environment ever seen in the series.
German sniper, Raubvogel lies in wait to ambush Churchill’s convoy en-route to the Casablanca Conference. Fight your way through the Axis barricades scattered amongst the foothills, move up into the mountains, flank the enemy encampments and begin your final ascent up the mountain to confront Raubvogel in an epic sniper duel that could decide the fate of a continent.
Stop Winston Churchill’s assassin before it’s too late! One bullet can change history...
Save Churchill Part 3 is out now on PC and will be coming to consoles soon.
NEW multiplayer mode – Capture the Flag
Capture the Flag has returned to the Sniper Elite series, offering players an objective focussed game with more speed and teamwork based gameplay.
Good snipers are still key to victory, but players will need to co-ordinate together to successfully assault the enemy base and capture the flag, relying on each other to protect the flag bearer and their own base from enemy attacks.
Capture the Flag is available now on PC and will be coming to console soon!
FREE multiplayer map – Night Watch
The fifth FREE multiplayer map for Sniper Elite 3 players on all platforms, Night Watch is one of the most challenging maps in the series. Taking players to an oasis shrouded in darkness, the ruins of an old town turned into a makeshift camp for enemy troops.
Two opposing watch towers provide the best sniping opportunities but also carry the highest risk, whereas vegetation on the water front can provide snipers with a place to hide from enemy scopes. The oasis itself provides a choke point as players close in on each other to take new positions and create sniping opportunities.
Night Watch is a balanced map available in all competitive multiplayer game modes, well suited to any team game whilst also offering a more focussed death match experience.
Nightwatch is available now on PC and will be coming to console soon!
