Sniper Elite III krijgt flinke day one update

Sniper Elite III is het laatste hoofdstuk in de prijswinnende serie

Deze week ligt Sniper Elite III in de winkels voor de PC, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4 en PlayStation 3. Als je de game installeert, verplicht op de PlayStation 4 en Xbox One, kost het 21 Gigabyte aan ruimte. Nu verschijnt er op de dag van de release al een update, voor alle systemen, die op de Xbox One maar liefst 10 Gigabyte weegt. Ontwikkelaar Rebellion laat weten:

“The main part of the update is to sync data between the game’s retail discs and the Xbox Live digital download edition of the game. In the several weeks between sending the code off to manufacture and release, rather than sit around or take a break, we’ve continued to work on the game, making improvements and optimisations. We’ve also begun work on multiplayer DLC and a small part of this update is to introduce a compatibility pack. This is standard for any game that adds DLC – it’s just to make sure everyone can have the same multiplayer experience whether they own DLC or not.

While we understand gamers will be frustrated at the wait, the good news is that the update will actually reduce the size of the game’s total install footprint on their hard drive, and reduce the size of future patches significantly. It’s part of this ongoing optimisation process that’s enabled Sniper Elite 3 to perform well at a native 1080p on both Xbox One and PS4. We appreciate everyone’s patience and we firmly believe Sniper Elite 3 will be worth the wait!”
