The first part of Sniper Elite 4‘s Deathstorm campaign will launch on March 21st, 2017, developer Rebellion has announced.
“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,” the developer explains. “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…”
Part one will be followed by two other parts in late April and June. All three parts will be included in the game’s season pass.
As well as this, the Night Fighter Expansion Pack also arrives on March 21st, introducing three new weapons, night-time camo rifle skins for eight weapons, and new male and female characters skins.
Finally, multiplayer fans will get a brand new free game mode called Elimination and 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,” the mode’s description reads. “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 available now on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
