SniperElite3_UltimateEdition_004

Planned for simultaneous retail and digital download release on March 10th for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One, the Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition from 505 Games and Rebellion will bundle in the full original game with a huge stash of DLC, including the three-part Save Churchill campaign, six multiplayer maps, six weapon packs, and three additional modes.

Here’s what all that extra stuff looks like in full list form:

‘Save Churchill’ DLC – A three-part campaign challenging players to foil a plot to assassinate inspirational British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill, featuring the biggest environments in Sniper Elite series to date:

•Save Churchill Part 1: In Shadows
•Save Churchill Part 2: Belly of the Beast
•Save Churchill Part 3: Confrontation

Six Weapons Packs – Added fire power to help players eliminate their targets:

•Hunter Weapons Pack
•Camouflage Weapons Pack
•Patriot Weapons Pack
•Sniper Rifles Weapons Pack
•Axis Weapons Pack
•Eastern Front Weapons Pack

Bonus content added to the base game since launch:

Six Multiplayer Maps – Expand your experience in the field with a diversity of treacherous and complex environments
•Fracture
•Night Watch
•Outpost Canyon
•Plantation
•Lost Valley
•Airstrip

Three Distinct Gameplay Modes – Hone your skills with three additional challenging missions
•The Shooting Range (Single player Mode)
•‘Twilight Strike’ Overwatch Mission (Co-Op Mission)
•Capture The Flag (Multiplayer Mode)

Pricing for Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition will range from $29.99 on PS3 and Xbox 360 to $39.99 on PS4 and Xbox One. That’s a pretty nice deal on a game that will only be a little more than half a year old by launch.

Seriously, why does anyone buy games on day one anymore, let alone pre-order? It seems like every game eventually comes out in an Ultimate, Definitive, or Game of the Year edition within a year and offers more content for a cheaper price. In this instance, I actually had my sights on buying the PS4 version of Sniper Elite 3 over the holidays. Now I am so glad that I held off on pulling the trigger.
