Sniper Elite 4 Deathstorm Part 1, the start of a new mini campaign, launches March 21 for PS4, Xbox One and PC, Rebellion has announced.
Deathstorm Part 1: Inception: The opening chapter and mission in the three-part campaign, playable from start to finish for 1-2 players. 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...
Also coming on March 21:
Night Fighter Expansion Pack: Includes three new weapons, night-time camo rifle skins for eight weapons and new male and female characters skins.
Elimination: A brand new free mode. 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.
Night Woods Multiplayer Map: Free to all players
Rebellion has previously stated that all new maps and modes will be offered free.
Two further DLC drops will take place in late April and May/June, including parts 2 and 3 of Deathstorm.
