505 Games and Rebellion is bringing full multiplayer support to Sniper Elite V2, off the back of strong success in the charts since the game's launch. A host of modes will be making their debut in Sniper Elite V2 later this year and will be absolutely free.

“Rebellion is very excited to release this multiplayer support for console” said Jason Kingsley, CEO of Rebellion: “We have always believed in supporting and building our games’ communities as best we can. This is in part to say thank you to dedicated gamers for buying our games, and also to say keep an eye out for our next big Sniper Elite announcement!”

There's three new screenshots showing multiplayer below, showing Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, Distance King and Team Distance King modes that will all be coming as part of the free DLC later this year.

Game could have used full co-op over MP. Eh, whatever tho. Really dug the game, but MP doesn't float my boat.

Havnt played it yet,I am interested though. Must've sold pretty well for them to add free multiplayer.It's nice to know and it's very smart. They are taking care of their customers and building a franchise. I think it's great that it's Free and that'll go a long way in building a loyal fanbase.

That being said they didn't have much competition with Ghost Warrior 2 being delayed. A game that I was much more excited for and would've bought already had it not been delayed.

Anyway thats how to support your customers.Thanks ahead of my purchase 505 and Rebellion.Also since it'll be free, I doubt there will be any achievements.However there are plenty of examples of free dlc's with achievements.

It's cool they bring this and free so how about bring new single-player campaign missions and coop missions with either of those come with new achievements, if happen I will buy it. I enjoyed this game and 1000G on this game already bit after launched so I hope new achievements in this game.1100G, 1250G, 1400G or whatsover. Please Rebellion and 505 Games!! :)

@17 - Use your beast of a PC to download some programs that will teach you basic grade school grammar.

All right, ladies, put your dicks away... nobody cares about your tiny cock swordfight in an actual thread.

As for the game: It's a cool move by 505; hands down, it's truly good business. Don't invest in MP until the game sells well, and then when it does, make good on your original goal. They did that, and they should be commended for it. HOWEVER... my opinion is that what made the single player so addictive to me was the bullet-time cameras. Every one is so unique, and... well, to me, hilarious. I love watching those things. The problems with multiplayer in games of this nature -- well, I can't pinpoint the problem. But anybody who wants to lose their sanity, start up a multiplayer game of Sniper: Ghost Warrior. It's like playing a round of everything you hated in Call of Duty. Yes, I understand it's a sniper's game, but it's so obnoxious to either sit around and see nothing, or move in a position where you could POSSIBLY see someone, only to get your entire dick blown off by a sniper that was already waiting.

Long story short: I think multiplayer for this awesome game is not a good idea, because it will probably share the woes of Sniper: Ghost Warrior, and, it would have to get rid of bullet time kills, which I just love too much.

I'd try it... I wish you guys luck. I just don't think it'll pan out the way you hope.

The PC version of the original game never had a strong following in the sense of player numbers, it did gave a rather large tight nit community that loved the game and played it for years on end. There's still people playing it to this day so I can only imagine V2 might have the same sort of life after death. Truly a game for people who want a pure sniper experience.

I'll be picking this up as soon as I get some spare cash.

Huh I downloaded the Demo off of steam but I never actually played it. I think I just uninstalled it too in one of my recent Demo Pogroms.

Dont agree with WelshDragon 88 at all! Its a wonderful game with more DLC and new weapons than MW3 had Not to mention the extreme graphic and dynamic quality these make SE v2 something very special.
