Sniper Elite 4 is an upcoming third-person tactical shooter stealth video game developed by Rebellion Developments and published by Sold Out.
Schedule for release on 14 February 2017, the game is set for release on Microsoft Windows, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
Sniper Elite 4 is set in Italy in 1943, in the immediate aftermath of the events in Sniper Elite III. Players control Karl Fairburne, an Office of Strategic Services agent, who is tasked to assist the Italian resistance force to fight against the Fascists in World War II.
What can players expect from Sniper Elite 4?
The game offers players a unique experience. When players kill an enemy using a sniper rifle from a long distance, the X-Ray kill cam system will activate, in which the game’s camera follows the bullet from the sniper rifle to the target and shows body parts, bones, or internal body organs being broken or ruptured by the bullet.
The game also has improved artificial intelligence, so when an enemy is killed, other enemies will begin actively looking for them.
A new inclusion in Sniper Elite 4 is the night missions feature, in which players can remove light sources to hide their presence.
There are also larger maps, granting players more freedom and open-ended gameplay. They’ll be able to target their shots from a range of locations in the game- with each space adding an element of extra challenge or advantage for the player.
The game’s developers have revealed that the game was expanded to make “real long shots” possible. While gamers who have played sniper games before will enjoy the improvements, reviewers have said that the game offers an experience more welcoming to newcomers.
Sniper Elite 4 is expected to sell approximately 200 000 physical copies on launch day in the United Kingdom.
