Rebellion has released the first chapter of a new three-part 'mini-campaign' for Sniper Elite 3 that tasks players with preventing the assassination of Winston Churchill.

Available on PC today for £4.99 and soon on PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PS3, Save Churchill: Part 1 continues the story of sniper Karl Fairburne after the events of Sniper Elite 3 as he travels to the city of Siwa to save the prime minister.

Parts two and three will be released later in the summer and, according to Rebellion, will "blow people away".

In addition, a new Airstrip multiplayer map has been released for free, with three more multiplayer maps also due later this summer.

Save Churchill follows the general release of Sniper Elite 3's 'Hunt the Grey Wolf' DLC earlier this week which sees players tasked with assassinating Hitler and Charlie Brooker.
