Take your sniping experience to a whole new level, 505 Games and Rebellion today released online multiplayer support, free of charge, for their European World War II action game, Sniper Elite V2.
The Multiplayer Expansion DLC offers 4 all new gameplay modes (Deathmatch/ Team Deathmatch/ Distance King/ Team Distance King) across six maps (Mountain Pass, Quarry, Graves, OpernPlatz, Church and Kreuzberg) and will support two to eight players via Xbox LIVE® for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®Network.
A number of new screenshots have been released for Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 showing the multiplayer and popular zombies mode. This title comes out just a month away on November 13th. Check out the screens below and see if they motivate you to make the purchase.
505 Games and Rebellion are going to be offering additional multiplayer to Sniper Elite V2 later this year. If you have not picked up this game that is all the more reason to do so. If you do have it than lucky you because you’re getting more bang for your buck. It will be a free feature and will feature Team Deathmatch along with other game types. It was something I was personally hoping for in the game but it did not make the final cut. It’s cool to see the companies wanting to bring more life to their game. While Battlefield 3 and Call of Duty are more kinetic multiplayer experiences, Sniper Elite V2 still has a lot to offer and could be a nice alternative to your other multiplayer titles. Download the demo on Xbox Live or The Playstation Network and give it a go if you have not already. It’s worth it. So brutal.
Don’t forget to check out our review of Sniper Elite V2 as well:
I saw some concept art for this a few months back before I knew it was a game and its design, look and charm won me over. I followed the art to a Kickstarter page that you can view at this link:http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/massiveblack/zombie-playground-zpg-3d-action-online-battle-rpg. I was glad to see it had already reached its goal and the game would be made and get to be played. Zombie Playground is the project of San Francisco art collective/now an indie developer Massive Black Inc. It is currently in development and has no publisher as of right now. With its premise and the level of professionalism being put forth I see this having no problem finding one. It will certainly be playable on PC’s and Mac’s but hopefully we will see it make its ways to consoles as well. Continue reading →
