Content Update: Downtown

Mercenaries,

Before we start i want to say you didn’t do too bad on the last mission. The Spring Cleaning operation was not an easy task but some of you almost made me think you were talented. But enough sweet talking! There ain’t no rest for the wicked! A new mission arrived from HQ and this time it’s a tough one to crack. This is a brand new kind of mission! So much that all of those nerds from R&D are also deploying new toys for you. So read the attached report carefully and try not to embarrass me alright?

We are excited to announce the latest Ironsight Content Update: Downtown! This one is packed with never-seen-before modes, maps, features and more!

Disclaimer: If you have issues patching the Downtown content update, please uninstall and reinstall the game from our website. If reinstalling didn't work please contact our Customer Support.
