Battleground Europe deploys snipers to the battlefield

Matrix Games and Playnet announce that the first person shooter and massive multiplayer game Battleground Europe has brought a new class into the virtual battlefield; the Sniper. This new addition comes hot on the heels of the game's availability in North America from the Matrix Games store. The sniper unit is armed with a historically accurate scope that modifies the standard issue rifle. These elite troopers are fast, stealthy, and dangerously accurate. No commander is safe from the crosshairs of a skilled sniper. Due to their limited ammunition, the sniper unit will always be on the move to strike and return to base for re-supply.

The full release in North America provides the latest version and goodies that were included in the European release last month. Enjoy a huge variety of extras, such as a 150-page game manual in electronic form, a combat equipment guide, wallpapers, game music, comics and more. Included is a key for 30 days of free play.

The Battleground Europe world features over 600 cities and 29,000 buildings. The zoneless map covers 350,000 Km of terrain with a whopping 4,000,000 trees. Battles can rage for days and the servers can support thousands of players online simultaneously.
