Play Sniper Elite 3 free this weekend

Gaming / PC

As part of Steam’s “Free Weekend” promotion, Rebellion is giving gamers the opportunity to play Sniper Elite 3 for free this weekend.

The third installment in the Sniper Elite series, Sniper Elite 3 is a tactical third-person shooter which takes the player through North Africa during World War II. One of the most fun features, in my opinion anyways, is the X-Ray Kill cam which follows the bullet through the air and through your targets body in x-ray style.

Key features of Sniper Elite 3 include:

  • Award-winning gunplay – Experience celebrated rifle ballistics honed to perfection. Take account of distance, gravity, wind, even your heart rate for intensely satisfying third person combat.
  • Expansive new environments – Stalk huge multi-route levels with multiple primary and secondary objectives than can be tackled in any order. Never play the same way twice.
  • Real tactical choice – Adapt to any situation. Use stealth, distraction, traps and sound masking . If things go hot, use the new Relocate mechanic to slip into the shadows and start the hunt again on your own terms.
  • Revamped human X-Ray Kill cam – The acclaimed X-Ray kill-cam is back and bolder than ever, including a detailed muscle layers, 3D mesh particles and the complete human circulatory system.
  • New X-Ray vehicle takedowns – See vehicles disintegrate in intricate detail with X-Ray vehicle takedowns. Multi-stage destruction allows you to take out armoured cars, trucks and Tiger tanks piece-by-piece.
  • Tense adversarial multiplayer – Five unique modes of online competitive action. Earn Medals and Ribbons as you play. Gain XP across all game modes, customise your character, weapons and loadout. Become a true Sniper Elite!
  • Explosive co-op play – Play the entire campaign in two player online co-op, or put your teamwork to the ultimate test in two dedicated co-op modes, Overwatch and Survival.
  • Customise your experience – Veteran or Rookie, play your way. Turn off all assistance and turn up the AI, or customise the experience to your preferred playstyle. Tweak the regularity of X-Ray kill cams, or turn them off all together.

Extra features include:

  • Supports Steam Big Picture Mode
  • Supports Stereoscopic 3D + Ultra Widescreen + Eyefinity screens

Players will be able to play Sniper Elite 3 free until Sunday, October 9th at 9PM BST (1PM PT/4PM PT), and if you like it enough to buy it you can get 80% off the price of the game this weekend as well.
