Rebellion's third person shooter, http://www.trueachievements.com/Sniper-Elite-V2-xbox-360.htm
, is set to receive competitive multiplayer DLC in addition to the campaign and co-op multiplayer already packed with the game.
After seeing great success with the title since its release, the teams behind the game, Rebellion and 505 Games, have decided to add on multiplayer support for the title, in an attempt to keep Sniper Elite V2
spinning in console disc trays for much longer. As you can imagine, the big bosses behind the game are very pleased and excited to be bringing this heavy addition to the title.
Jason Kingsley, CEO of Rebellion is all for the community with his comment regarding the DLC:
Rebellion is very excited to release this multiplayer support for console. 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!
Ian Howe, President of 505 Games North America, had this to say:
There has been tremendous support for Sniper Elite V2 since we first announced our relationship with Rebellion and it’s really exciting to see that carry on through to release and beyond. As a thank you for that support, we’re very pleased to now be able to offer a full multi-player feature set, free of charge, to all of our fans on Xbox 360 and Playstation 3
Four new competitive modes will be included with the multiplayer DLC, these being "Team Deathmatch", "Deathmatch", "Team Distance King", and "Distance King". Here's a rough idea on how matches will be played out in these new game modes, as the calmest of snipers attempt to crown themselves the one-shot king in these screenshots:
The upcoming free
DLC pack is set for release later this year.
Thank you to all of you who sent this news in!
