With Overwatch and Titanfall 2 being the most notable games to offer post-launch multiplayer maps and modes for free, it seems more games are slowly getting into the act, too. The latest game to join the bandwagon? Rebellion’s Sniper Elite 4.
In an interview with PlayStation LifeStyle set to hit the site later this week, Rebellion’s Head of Creative Tim Jones confirmed that all Sniper Elite 4 multiplayer maps and modes will be free to the community post-launch!
PlayStation LifeStyle: Will the game include any microtransactions? How about a Season Pass?
Tim Jones: Sniper Elite 4 doesn’t include any microtransactions in the free-to- play, pay-to- win sense I imagine you’re referring to. As with Sniper Elite 3 you will be able to buy weapon skins, new weapons and characters to use in most modes but there are no in-game currency packs tobuy or that sort of thing. And yes, there is a Season Pass. It’ll give you access to all the DLC we create, and as we did with Sniper Elite 3, we plan to support Sniper Elite 4 with tons of content after launch, including new campaign content, so there’s something for everyone.
And like I said, all multiplayer map modes and maps will be entirely free for the community.
This is definitely the kind of news gamers want to hear when developers talk about post-launch support. Let’s hope this becomes a trend for more and more games down the line.
