Sniper Elite III: Ultimate Edition‘s new DLC Available for PS4, Xbox One

If you’ve been holding out on getting Rebellion Development’s Sniper Elite III on consoles, there’s now an even better way to get into the x-ray-blasting action. Sniper Elite III: Ultimate Edition recently made its way to PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One, packing the base game with nine additional DLC packs.

The DLC in Ultimate Edition includes the Save Churchill missions—In Shadows, Belly of the Beast, and Confrontation—as well as 18 additional weapons, bonus multiplayer maps, and other modes that have been added since the shooter’s initial launch. New gameplay modes are the single-player Shooting Range, the co-op Twilight Strike Overwatch mission, and multiplayer Capture the Flag mode.

Wargarming's World of Tanks issues its 'Iron Brotherhood' update, and Rebellion's Sniper Elite III hits PS4 & Xbox One with all-new DLC.

‘Iron Brotherhood’ Invades World of Tanks

The latest update for Wargarming.net’s World of Tanks recently arrived, deploying a line of Soviet heavy tanks across Xbox 360 consoles. The free-to-play game’s “Iron Brotherhood” update adds a new map along with five new Soviet-built heavy tanks, effectively throwing a few more battle options in the mix for Xbox Live Gold members.

New vehicles include the T-150 (tier VI), KV-3 (tier VII), KV-4 (tier VIII), ST-I (tier IX), and IS-4 (tier X), each boasting thick armor which makes them formidable opponents when it comes to soaking up damage on the battlefield. The newest map offering is South Coast, which looks like a comfortable getaway at first glance, but holds within it plenty of sly strategic opportunities. Tight channels allow for devious convoy ambushes, overlooks provide nice spotting locations, and the center and eastern portions are great all-around for vantage points early on in the conflict.

Despite the fact that South Coast comes along with the new batch of Soviet heavies, the varied terrain has some areas that are much better-suited for tanks that tread a bit more lightly. Rolling over to the eastern portions of the map will require ample speed, lest you be caught like a sitting duck in the wide-open spaces. There are combat options here for most any type of tanker, so longtime players of World of Tanks: Xbox 360 Edition now have a nice new playground to dig into whether they decide to roll with the fresh Soviet options or not.
