Sniper Elite has been one of my gaming “guilty pleasures” ever since I was introduced to Robbaz’s Sniper Elite videos. From Sniper Elite 2 and 3 to the Zombie Army Trilogy released last year by Rebellion, the company has delivered a fun sniping experience complete with their x-ray kill cam.
With over 10 million copies sold in the Sniper Elite series to date, Rebellion has announced that Sniper Elite 4 will be launching later this year for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
Set in the immediate aftermath of its award-winning predecessor, Sniper Elite 4 continues the series’ World War Two heritage by transporting players to the beautiful and diverse environments of Italy in 1943.
Covert agent and elite marksman Karl Fairburne must fight alongside the brave men and women of the Italian Resistance to help free their country from the yoke of Fascism, and defeat a terrifying new threat with the potential to halt the Allied fightback in Europe before it’s even begun.
If his mission fails, there will be no Operation Overlord, no D-Day landings, and no Victory in Europe.
Sniper Elite 4 will run in native 1080p on both the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, and will feature dedicated campaign, co-op, and adversarial multiplayer modes. From sun-drenched Mediterranean coastal towns to colossal Nazi megastructures, daunting forests, and giddying mountain monasteries inspired by Monte Cassino, Sniper Elite 4 will offer breathless emergent stealth action and unrivalled sniping freedom across maps many times the size of those seen in Sniper Elite 3.
A release date has not been revealed as of yet, but keep it tuned here and we’ll update you once we know when the next-gen sniping game from Rebellion is set to launch.Source: Sniper Elite 4
