Two no-fee multiplayer maps and new game mode on the way

To coincide with the release of Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2, which is out today in Europe, the game’s developer, CI Games, has announced the tactical first-person shooter will be supported with some free post-launch DLC.

Included in the gratis expansion will be two new multiplayer maps – ‘Tower Defence’ and ‘Temple Crossing’ – and an all-new game mode to play. It sounds like this is the first DLC reveal of many, with CI Games promising that this add-on is “just the first step in our plan to support the Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 experience for our fans after launch.”

Here’s images of the two multiplayer maps:
