Out this week is Sniper Elite 3 will launch with a 10GB day-one patch on Xbox One, it has been confirmed. The sizeable day one patch will be used to make a variety of improvements and reduce the install size from 21GB to 19GB, Rebellion has told Eurogamer.
“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,” a Rebellion spokesperson explained.
“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.”
“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,” the spokesperson continued.
“We appreciate everyone’s patience and we firmly believe Sniper Elite 3 will be worth the wait!”
Sniper Elite 3 will make its European debut on 27th June for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4, PS3 and PC. It will launch in North America on 1st July.
