New competitive multiplayer modes added to the third-person shooter via free DLC.
Six months on from release, competitive multiplayer has finally been added to the console versions of Sniper Elite V2, via free DLC.
Team Deathmatch, Deathmatch, Team Distance King and Distance King modes have been added to the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 versions of the third person shooter, bringing it on par with the PC spec. It’s about damn time Rebellion!
“Rebellion is very excited to release this multiplayer support for console” said Jason Kingsley, CEO of Rebellion.
“We have always believed in supporting and building our games’ communities as best we can. This is in part to say thank you to dedicated gamers for buying our games, and also to say keep an eye out for our next big Sniper Elite announcement!”
We’re sure a lot of the original purchasers of Sniper Elite V2 have long since sold or traded in their console copy, but if you haven’t – kudos to you!
The really interesting thing about this announcement isn’t necessarily the promise of new content though, it’s actually Jason Kingsley alluding no so subtly that this franchise will return soon with a new announcement confirming that fact.
Where would you like the next Sniper Elite to be set? Russia? Space? The underside of an industrial oven in Gordon Ramsey’s kitchen?
