The next lot of DLC has been announced by game developer Rebellion for their third-person shooter, Sniper Elite 3
. The new and upcoming multiplayer map, "Outpost Canyon", will be the title's fourth free map, along with a new weapon pack containing some deadly, life-ending, but all so sweet weaponry.
There's nothing as relaxing as climbing up to a high platform with a breath-taking view, hunkering down into a prone position, adjusting the scope on your sniper, and then getting your face blown off
taking shots at the enemies scurrying below. In "Outpost Canyon", gamers will battle across an "abandoned supply line, high up in the windswept Atlas Mountains". The new map features a "free-flowing design" and there will be plenty of nice, high and elevated places for the sneakiest, stealthiest, and most patient snipers to get settled in.
Ominously deserted, the map is littered with evidence of previous skirmishes for what was once a crucial supply line for German forces; forgotten artillery positions and the scorched remains of vehicles mark the undulating landscape, ridges and barren river-bed.
What better way to enjoy some quality scoping in the Canyon than with the newly revealed "Axis Weapons pack". Shipped in fresh from "German, Royal Italian and Imperial Japanese armies", the Type 99 rifle, MAB 38 submachine gun, and Army Pistol 38 will be put to good use in a variety of ways. These weapons do it all as players can annoy opposition with long range kills, break hearts close range with rapid close-range fire, and if ammo's running dry, be sure to quickly whip out the new sidearm which will be available.
All three weapons can be used in any multiplayer, singleplayer or co-operative game mode in Sniper Elite 3.
The Axis Weapons pack includes:
• Type 99 rifle: Japanese made with a higher zoom and lower recoil, this bolt action rifle is one of strongest long range weapons available.
• MAB 38 submachine gun: boasting an improved rate of fire, range and zoom this Italian submachine gun has a distinct advantage over most.
• Army Pistol 38: used by German officers and soldiers alike this semi-automatic pistol has a strong rate of fire whilst still maintaining its impressive range.
The "Outpost Canyon" map pack will be free for gamers playing Sniper Elite 3
on both the Xbox 360 and Xbox One. The "Axis Weapons pack" is yet to receive its price tag. Both DLC packs are scheduled for release "later this month".
