Sniper Elite 3 gets rifles DLC, free multiplayer map

Sniper Elite 3 - 10

Rebellion have fired off some new rifles at Sniper Elite 3, as well as a free multiplayer map on which to use them.

The new rifles are courtesy of the aptly-named Sniper Rifles Pack. This bit of DLC will grant you access to a trio of long-range murdersticks: the Kar 98k, the M1917 Enfield, and a “specially tuned version of the fan-favourite Springfield rifle.” I have no idea how much this will cost but, as all of the other Sniper Elite 3 weapon packs are £2.99, I’m going to take a wild guess that it’ll be £2.99.

If you don’t fancy shelling out money, then you can at least get your hands on the free Lost Valley multiplayer map. Rebellion reckon it’s one of the most diverse maps in the franchise, offering vertical terrain, excavated ruins, a sinkhole, some open jungle, sea shallows, a temporary airfield, and some camps. Which is quite a lot of stuff. It’s apparently got a load of different routes through, plenty of vantage points, and a lot of foliage-based soft cover.

Both of these bits of Sniper Elite 3 DLC are out today, so I’d wager they’ll be popping up around 6pm UK time (if they haven’t already appeared by the time you read this).
