Sniper Elite 3 dev diary offers a look at co-op and multiplayer

Rebellion has released a new developer diary for Sniper Elite 3 that offers a first look at the game’s competitive and co-op multiplayer.

In the game’s multiplayer players will be encouraged to switch spots between kills by a score multiplier that will increase with each kill after relocating. Players will also have a limited supply of ammo in multiplayer—again to encourage them to move and look for more. Without these encouragements multiplayer would be an incredibly boring affair.

When it comes to co-op, players will be encouraged to work together to take down enemies, and not just to overwhelm them with twice the firepower. An example given was the weak spot on a tank, which is usually found at the back. To access it one player must draw the tanks fire while his/her partner moves round to get a clear shot at the weak spot.

Finally, players will be able to take any customized weapon from the game’s single player into multiplayer, but if they are killed an enemy can pick up that powerful weapon and use it against you. Also XP earned in multiplayer can be used to unlock upgrades for guns that will carry back over to single player.

Sniper Elite 3 is set to launch July 1 for PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One. A PC release, which is being self-published by Rebellion, is due June 27.

Matthew Bennett, Associate Editor
Matthew Bennett finally got his big break with EGM three years ago, following years of volunteer work for various sites. An ability to go many hours without sleep and a quick wit make him ideal for his role as associate editor at EGMNOW.com. He often thinks back to the days when the very idea of this career seemed like nothing but an impossible dream. Follow him on Twitter @mattyjb89. Meet the rest of the crew.
