Sniper Elite 4 Trailer Reveals Upcoming DLC Details Plus Free Content

By Andrew Ogley, 9 days ago
Fans of the popular WWII stealth title Sniper Elite 4 will be pleased to know that there is plenty of new content heading their way in July, some of which is free, too.

Deathstorm Finale

Firstly, Rebellion has released a trailer revealing details of the final part of the Deathstorm DLC. The installment, entitled "Obliteration", returns players to the heartland of WWII Germany. In the town of Steigerloch, the Nazis are busy at work on a nuclear project with potentially disastrous consequences for the planned allied D-Day invasion. Naturally, it falls to Karl Fairburne to thwart the nefarious plans and bring Deathstorm down, once and for all.


Along with the clip, Rebellion has also released a few screenshots from the new DLC pack that also includes six new Axis characters to use in multiplayer.


For those looking for a little new firepower to add to their arsenal, the new "Lock and Load" expansion pack will be available, bringing the SVT, M30 Drilling and Mauser M712 rifles to the fight. If that wasn't already enough, the new Authentic Plus mode will be available, reducing onscreen aids and bringing relentless enemies. Clearly, this is something for the diehards and those succeeding in the challenge will be rewarded with two new achievements.

It's worth noting that the new mode is free and there are a few more freebies arriving at the same time. Elite ranks will raise the level cap from 50 to 250. There will be a new survival map named "Facility" based on the Magazzeno Facility campaign mission, and a new adversarial map named "Bunker" that is inspired by the Allegra Fortress campaign mission. Finally, Rebellion has listened to fans and brought back the option to choose your rifle's scope reticule.

All of the new Sniper Elite 4 content will be available from July 18th.
