Fans of Sniper Elite 3 know that there's no greater joy than plugging a bullet right into the head of an enemy soldier, only to watch their skull explode in the process. Gross? To some, sure. But definitely satisfying. Now you'll be able to do more of it, as Rebellion has announced two additional pieces of downloadable content that will be coming very soon to the game.
The first item is a new multiplayer map called Lost Valley. Per the press release, here's the description: Packed with secret routes, vantage points and plenty of lush foliage for cover, snipers must decide whether to navigate the dangerously exposed mountain terrain for a commanding view of the battlefield, or opt to ambush enemy combatants from the waterfront shallows, temporary airfield and tented camps below. The map will be available free of charge.
In addition, a new Sniper Rifles pack, which features new weapons such as the Kar 98k, the M1917 Enfield, and a specifically tuned version of the Springfield rifle, which is clearly a fan favorite.
There's no word on how much the Rifle Pack will cost, but it probably won't cost you an arm and a leg, unlike the soldiers that you'll be shooting over the course of the game. Sniper Elite 3 is available now for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.
