Sniper Elite 3 Support Updates

December 2014

Latest update, now live on Xbox 360!

The latest console update is now live on Xbox 360. The update features 3 new multiplayer maps, a new multiplayer mode, an Overwatch co-op mission, and the Shooting Range!

For anyone struggling to download the update or access multiplayer try deleting the previous ‘Multiplayer Expansion Pack’ then attempt to re-download it from the Sniper Elite 3 main menu (you may also need to restart your console and delete you cache). If you’re still unable to download the update you can go to SETTINGS > ACCOUNT > DOWNLOAD HISTORY where you should be able to download the latest multiplayer expansion pack.

Thank you all for your patience and continued support of Sniper Elite 3!

Xbox 360 Multiplayer Issue

**EDIT** The Free Multiplayer Expansion pack is now live on Xbox 360 (worldwide)

We’re aware of an issue currently being experienced by Xbox 360 users not able to access multiplayer and being prompted to download a Free Multiplayer Expansion Pack (not currently available).
 
The Expansion Pack was submitted and scheduled to be released simultaneously alongside a compatibility update that would allow the new content to be played -  however it wasn’t until we saw comments from players that we discovered the update had actually gone live without the Expansion, causing this issue.
 
We’re working with Microsoft to get the Expansion Pack out tomorrow to end this issue. We’ll keep you updated.

Console patches: now live on Xbox ONE, Xbox 360 & PS4 (North America)

**EDIT** All console patches are now live!

Console Patches are now live on Xbox ONE, Xbox 360 and PS4 in North America (We’re just waiting for word from Sony about PS4 Europe) **EDIT** The PS4 Europe patch is now live (17:30 BST - 31/08/14)

If the update has not yet appeared in your dashboard the store in your region may need a few moments to refresh.

Thank you all for your patience and now that the patches are out the way we can start cracking on bringing the Save Churchill missions, FREE multiplayer maps and more to consoles...

Issues addressed in the patch include:

  • Fixed a potential hang on the Sniper Elite 3 logo screen due to corrupted stats in profiles (should hopefully reload the old faulty profile so no progress is lost).
  • Fixed occasional missing rifle reticules after upgrades
  • Fixed potential issue with level completion (tagging of officiers) in Siwa when in custom difficulty with no binoculars tagging option.
  • Added achievement support for all 3 x upcoming SaveChurchill DLC missions
  • Rifle customisation preserved more reliably.
  • Co-operative play now available for both DLC missions ("Hunt The Grey Wolf" and "In Shadows").
  • Total collectable count now reflects currently installed DLC rather than ignoring DLC or counting DLC that isn't installed.
  • Added the option to disable the aim assist zoom and reticle independently of difficulty setting (the multiplayer aim assist setting will override this, as will Authentic difficulty).
  • DLC collectibles/achievements no longer counted against campaign progress.
  • Total collectable count now reflects currently installed DLC rather than ignoring DLC or counting DLC that isn't installed.

Console patches: ready and waiting 

Earlier in the month we gave you provisional patch releases dates of August 26th across the consoles.

Despite submitting the patches on schedule we are still waiting on Microsoft and Sony to release the updates.

We understand everyone's frustation at the delay however there is nothing we can do once the content is submitted - it is now up to the platform owners to hit the imaginary green 'release' button. 

We have no control over this, explaining why our release dates were provisional only.

*Update August 27th*

  • PS3 patch already live.
  • Xbox One / 360 expected within 24 hours.
  • PS4 still waiting on Sony.

 


 

August 8th 2014 *Updated August 19th 2014*

Console patches: PROVISIONAL release dates

Below is a list of our projected release dates for the upcoming console patches. Please note these dates are PROVISIONAL - submission is not an exact science, and the different platforms/stores have different rules and restrictions, including the days and dates we are permitted to launch.

We hope we can deliver these dates for you all. Once these patches are live, we will finally update you on the fun stuff - dates for new console content!


Playstation 3 - August 12th *UPDATE* PS3 patch is now live

Xbox 360 - August 15th *UPDATE* New provisional date of August 26th

Playstation 4 - August 21st *UPDATE* New provisional date of August 26th

PS4 multiplayer update now live in USA

The multiplayer update (see yesterday's notes below) launched yesterday across PS4s in Europe and 'rest of the world' is now live in the US. 

 


July 15th 2014

PS4 & Xbox One updates now live

Multiplayer improvements for Xbox One (worldwide) and PS4 (Europe) are NOW LIVE. The PS4 patch for America is expected imminently.  

Xbox One Players should see more players in their lobbies, while PS4 players should see a significant reduction in the number of connection timeouts.

PS4 players please note: in order for us get this fix tested and submitted as fast as we could, we’ve had to temporarily disable team voice chat. This will be reinstated soon. Chat between players in a PSN system party is unaffected.

Again we’d like to say a huge “thank you” from everyone at Rebellion and 505 for all your patience on this. 

If you have any more feedback please get in touch here: research.net/s/SniperElite3

 


July 10th 2014

PS4 & Xbox One updates now in submission!

After a lot of hard work from the team, fixes for the multiplayer issues affecting the PS4 and Xbox One editions of Sniper Elite 3 have been cleared through our internal QA and are now in submission with both Microsoft and Sony.

Depending on your region, submission will begin over the weekend or early next week. If passed by the platform holders we hope these fixes should be live sometime next week.

Thanks again for your patience and we apologise for the frustration caused. If you are experiencing any other issues please report them here http://www.research.net/s/SniperElite3 so the team can fix them as quickly as possible.

 


July 3rd 2014

Playstation 4 Multiplayer Patch

The Sniper Elite team have now managed to isolate the matchmaking issues and time-outs on Playstation 4 and are confident we have a fix that can be released soon.

However any changes made to the game require rigorous re-testing by our QA team. Once this is done, the patch will be submitted to our publisher, 505 Games and Sony.

We’ll let you know when this happens and how long we believe it will take for the patch to go live.

Xbox One Multiplayer issues

A few players have been finding empty multiplayer lobbies or only managed to get into games with very few players. We’ve found the issue and are in the process of fixing this.

For now, players are unaffected if they send invites to other players or join lobbies as a group/party.

We'll update this page tomorrow. Again we thank you for your patience!

Playstation 4 Multiplayer Patch

We are aware that some players are experiencing match-making issues in multiplayer and syncing problems in co-op in the PS4 edition of Sniper Elite 3. 

Thank you to everyone that has alerted us to this so far.

This is our NUMBER ONE priority right now and the team is working full time on trying to isolate the issue.

Match-making can take a few attempts, but should eventually result in joining a solid lobby - or if you're able - set up a private game. 

Please also check that you are not behind a NAT 3 router - NAT 1 and NAT 2 will give you a much better chance of connection, especially in coop. We will keep you updated but hope to get this resolved very very quickly.

We will be updating this page regularly with more information.
