The guys at Rebellion sure do love their historical personalities. In the last Sniper Elite 3 DLC pack we were tasked with blowing the moustache off Hitler himself, but this time around you’ll be preventing an assassination, not performing one. Your charge: Winston Churchill. If one ember on his cigar is out of place by the end of your mission, it’s to the brig with you.
The DLC will be made up of a trio of parts, and the first is available to buy right now from Steam.
Save Churchill is set in the aftermath of Sniper Elite 3’s main campaign, as OSS sharpshooter Karl Fairbourne investigates the Nazi plot to knock off Churchill in the run up to the Casablanca Conference in 1943. Part one is set in a nighttime variant of a previously visited area - Siwa - but will see some notable changes. Parts 2 and 3 will be released later in the summer and will contain some of the largest Sniper Elite environments ever made, including a massive coliseum. The DLC is currently only playable solo, but co-op support will be patched in at a later date.
Alongside Save Churchill will be a smaller DLC pack: the Patriots Weapon pack. The kit will contain US classic guns 1911 .45 pistol, the Springfield rifle, and the M3 Grease Gun.
For those more reluctant to part with cash, a free new multiplayer map is now available. Airstrip is the first of several free maps that will be released over the summer months.
