Not content with letting players shoot Hitler through every possible extremity, Rebellion are lining up another famous face for their next Sniper Elite 3 DLC pack.
A new three-part mission will let you foil a plot to assassinate Winston Churchill. If it doesn't let me snipe an explosive cigar from between Churchill's teeth seconds before it detonates I'm not interested.
Part 1: In Shadows is out now via Steam, and sees SE3 protagonist Karl Fairburne return to the oasis of Siwa in search of enemy plans that could reveal the nature of the assassination plot. According to the Steam page co-op is coming soon, so if your friend gets hold of the DLC as well you'll eventually be able to save wartime Britain together by rescuing its famous figurehead.
So this initial episode is a reworked map from the main campaign, which Rebellion say "feels very different", now set at night and with new foliage and bombed-out buildings. The second and third episodes will apparently have all-new environments. Creative head Tim Jones promises “new encounters, new weapons, new unit types ... the new missions are going to feel very different.”
You can grab the first episode of the new DLC trilogy for Â£4.99.
In addition there's a new weapon pack with a Springfield rifle, M3 "Grease Gun" and an M1911 pistol sidearm. Thewill set you back Â£2.99, and it's also out now.
You've killed Hitler, now you can save Churchill in Sniper Elite 3
