Sniper Elite 4 launches this year!



We’re delighted to announce the next game in the 10 million selling Sniper Elite series is launching this year for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.

https://youtu.be/yxcBxyt1r-I
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.

About This Game

In the dark days of the end of World War Two amidst the ruins of Berlin, one bullet can change history…

Sniper Elite V2 is an award-winning and authentic World War II sniping experience. You are elite US sniper Karl Fairburne. Parachuted into Berlin amidst the Germans’ final stand, your mission is to prevent Nazi V2 rocket program technology from falling into the hands of the besieging Red Army. You must aid key scientists keen to defect to the US, and terminate those who would help the Russians.

Take advantage of authentic weaponry, learn how to stalk your targets, fortify your position, set up the shot, use your skill, patience and cunning to achieve your mission. Stealth gameplay is the key as you find yourself trapped between two desperate armies in a race against time.

Watch as the celebrated ‘bullet cam’ from Sniper Elite returns, bloodier and more gruesome than ever – skilful shots are rewarded with a slow-motion flight of the bullet, then targets are graphically rendered in X-Ray as the bullet enters and destroys your victim. Organs shred, bones splinter, teeth shatter, as the true impact of the sniper’s bullet is brought to life.

As World War Two ends and the Cold War begins, every shot counts. Use it wisely.

Key features:

  • Sniping Simulation - Sniper Elite V2 features detailed sniping simulation with advanced ballistics, taking into account gravity, wind, velocity, bullet penetration, aim stability and more. Guaranteed to provide players with the most realistic simulation of military sharpshooting yet available.
  • X-Ray Kill Cam - Amazing ‘kill cam’ technology showcases what really happens when a bullet enters an enemy’s body, allowing players to see hearts and lungs tear, livers burst, and bones shatter.
  • Authenticity - The game features authentic World War II Berlin locations as well as vehicles, weapons such as the Springfield M1903 the Gewehr 43 and the Mosin-Nagant 1891/30, and uniforms modeled after the original versions.
  • Use the Environment - The slightest changes in the environment need to be taken into account to move into the perfect position, observe the quarry, take the shot and slip away unnoticed.
  • Sniper's Choice - Players will often find themselves facing a choice of the perfect shot that leaves them catastrophically exposed or a more difficult route that means they can continue their mission.
  • Multiplayer Game Types - Team Deathmatch, Deathmatch, Team Distance King, Distance King, Team Dogtag Harvest, Dogtag Harvest and Capture the Flag.

New Content Available For Your Game!

Since its release, Sniper Elite V2 has been continually supported by Rebellion, adding new features and content - including an additional 10 free multiplayer maps.

Four additional single-player mission packs are available for purchase, including the ultimate sniping mission - Kill Hitler. Each DLC pack also contains 2 new authentic weapons for your arsenal.

As a WW2 veteran with a PhD (pretty huge D___) in WW2 studies, I can professional say that the close up of the bullet going through the scrotum is exactly the same shape, size, and colour of a legitimate bullet going into your testicle.

For the 4 hours I played this game, my first goal was to dickshoot all the nazis I could find, I only dickshot one guy. I'm very dissapointed, if I could recommend an update it would be to have a target on all the nazis ♥♥♥♥ hole area so I could get the moneys worth out of this game. Sure, I got to shoot down a nuclear missle mid air, blow up a few bridges and infiltrate germany, but the epitome of my adventure was when I shot poor nazi gaurd #95839 in the left scrotum. I was so intriegued by the realism of the outfits of the soldiers that I too, went out and bought a replica mosen nagart, vintage nazi uniforms, an ushanka and shot my self in the left scrotom. My wife says I'm way into this and I need help, but I shot her in the scrotum too and it must have worked because she's not moving, so she's either really good at roleplaying dead nazis, or she's dead. And no, I'm not married to caitlyn jenner.

The only con in this game is that I was not able to shoot any japaneese soldiers. You know what I always wondered? Why the hell did they make Kamakazi Pilots wear helmets? I found the game pretty easy, which is why I believe adding Japaneese soldiers to this game would have made it quite a challange to shoot in the scrotom seeing as they have small uh, planes...............

I ran around the game trying to shoot nazi soldiers in the ♥♥♥♥ing ♥♥♥♥♥ hole for 4 hours straight. I didn't collect any of the gold bars, nor did I even bother writing in anne frank's diary. I enjoyed this game more than I did watching grandad yell at the germans across the street. We invited the germans over for dinner one time, my granddad kept farting and saying "this is for killing corporal johnny with your mustard gas."

I let granddad play this game to try to relive his past and he hid under the table the broom screaming "IM NOT LETTING THOSE DAMN FRANKFURTS STEAL MY VIRGINITY."

It was at that moment that I realized my grandfather wasn't even in the second world war. How could I let that pass by me? This man infront of me, he wasn't even my grandfather. I had let in some homeless dude walk into my parents house, ♥♥♥♥ on the germans and go on my gaming computer while screaming at me. Did I even have a grandfather? My grandfather lived in Europe, yes, but he lived in Switzerland.

How could the game developers make such a realistic game that it could remind this homeless man who refuses to leave about the great war? There were no coloured photos back then, so how could they get the colour so right?

I realized that there were two possible conclusions now. Either the quantum theory of the movement of time is so true that World War Two occured yesterday, where time itself is technically a 'dimension' we experience while awake, and it's only be virtue of the clocks we keep, that we measure the time we sleep. I have heard the universe has a 'pulse', or 'oscillation sotospeak. It is possible that scientists, have used that as a tool for measuring the physical changes that take place in the universe.

or

...

Hitler was behind the creation of the game.

In World War 2, the Japaneese would fly planes into buildings, aircraft carriers etc. etc. but wait, the Japaneese were not portrayed at all in this game. Neither were the British. The only factions portrayed in this game were the Germans, Russians, and the Americans.

Let's take a look at what this really means. The Japaneese were famous for flying planes into buildings, aircraft carriers etc.. You know what other orginization was popular for flying a plane into a building?

Al-Qaeda. But we're not done yet. Al-Qaeda was started in offices and mosques in britain in 1980. (It's true, look it up.)

The developer studio and its personal developers are from Britain. Could there be an allignment here?

Could the Japaneese and the British Government cooperate to try to deminish their role from World War 2 Alltogether?

But why would the Brits want to remove their legacy of beating the Germans?

...

A very popular theory is that rich British buisnessmen had funded the uprising of the Nazi army to be able to sell billions of dollars of military equiptment to the British government.

...

This game's DLC, where you kill hitler, is approximately $8.79 CAD, in USD-conversion at the moment that's $6.35, so let's stick with that.

Hitler was born in April. April is the 6th Month of the year.

But wait, Osama Bin Laden, leader of Al-Qaeda also died in April. The 6th month of the year.

Are you starting to see a connection here?

Let's take the date of Germany's Surrender (April 28) and compare it to Osama's birth (March 10). How many weekdays are inbetween? 35.

Another theory is that Hitler didn't actually kill himself, but rather fled to Argentina. Theorists say that it was discovered that the bones of Hitler were actually those of a woman. You might think, "why would the Government lie about that?" Well, let's look at Canada, a direct off shoot of England. The Government of Canada has for 12 years silenced different types of Scientists (including archaeologists and geologists) about their findings should there be any conflict of interest with the Government. (It's true look it up)

What makes you think the father won't do any less.

It's confirmed, this game is created by Hitler, and minions of the evil British banking industry. Other than that, I rate the game 7/10, the game has beautiful campaign but they only last so long, which is pretty upsetti spaghetti.

H-HEY, WHAT ARE YOU DOING IN MY HOUSE? FBI?! H-HEY DON'T TURN OFF THE COMPUT-

They should rename this game to "Testicle Sniper V2"

Also, the guy in charge of the internal organ design (especially testicles) should get a raise. I've never shot this much male genitalia since freshman year in high school.

I just finished the game, and it's fantastic. You should play it on "Sniper Elite" difficulty, it's a real challenge on some sections full of enemy snipers.

This is how it runs (it still looks very good):

Equipped with a sniper rifle, your protagonist must traverse through various WW II locales to eliminate high-ranking Nazi officials. The story gets interesting when you find out one of the officials is actually a traitor who has vital information as to what the Nazis are preparing for in their desperate attempt to turn the tides.

This game is the epitome of long-range warfare! Sniping enemies has never been more fun! The Ghost Warrior games are nowhere near as exciting as Sniper Elite. The game regularly awards your long-distance, deadly shots with a slow-motion cutscene during which you can see the gory (and glorious) results of your doing. Quite often you get to see how the bones and organs are crushed within the enemies' bodies. Seeing how the heart of an MP40 wielding soldier explodes can be quite disgusting but also quite invigorating!

Unfortunately, while the titular activity in this game is very well carried out everything else in the combat is quite mediocre. Close-combat fight can be quite difficult - it is next to impossible to get a headshot with an MP40 or a Thompson. It is as if the creators deliberately weakened all the other weapons just to force you to use the sniper rifle at all times. Not the mention the amount of bullets you have at your disposal - you will almost never run out of bullets while sniping. I get their point - still, a more refined system could have been put in place.

I heard completing a major part of the game is possible via stealth gameplay - some of the achievements can only be obtained by taking this route. Still, I did not find the insta-kills interesting enough - I had several failed attempts due to the clunky movement of our character. Setting traps is also possible; we have tripmines, landmines and dynamites. Too bad it is quite rarely a must during the roughly 8-hour long campaign.

Those of you who've already read my Nazi Zombie Army reviews must know how much I hate both games. I hate that you have an excellent idea but the execution is just horrible. Connecting to a host took ages and drops from the multiplayer game were frequent. With Sniper Elite V2's campaign I hate them even more as I can now see what levels the creators recycled to get their campaign ready. And now that I've mentioned the DLC titles I can confirm I did not find any cooperative / multiplayer sessions, at all. I expected this, though.

Putting aside the non-existing online gameplay sessions Sniper Elite V2 offers a rather lengthy and great campaign. I do not know what can be more fun than taking out a tank by hitting its fuel tank with a well-aimed shot! This game is THE sniping game. Period!
