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.

German soldiers keep chanting like they were a bunch of lunatics.

Wondering why the voice actor for the main guy wasn't Arnold Schwarzenegger.

This game made me indulge myself in reverie, Allies didn't really need to invest money into an army. They had that butcher with a rifle instead.

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!

THE MOUSE ACCELERATION IN THIS GAME RUINED IT>WTF ARE YOU DOING? this game was fine when it came out then these ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s started putting pop up ads for there games in the startup of this game. it even opens a steam window. and guess what i already bought those games and it says purchased but still pops up. Since then the dummys decided to update and breack the mouse settings for both Sniper elite V3 and sniper elite 3. Both have pop up ads now and a consol worthy update that compledly broke the mouse in a sniping game. it has mouse accelration turned on automatically. you cant even navigate the main menus now what a waste. I used to love these games now coming back to play them and they are ruined. i am uninstalling them both now because i cant even navigate the menu to start multiplayer. on either game.

One of the worst games I have played this year. All you do is slaughter your way through every enemy you encounter. I expected a bit of stealth gameplay, the only "stealth" element is the pistol with the silencer, however, it has very limited ammo, and awful accuracy.
I played this co-op with a friend, which is probably the only thing that made me finish the game.

Fantastic game if you like solo missions of stealth and sniping - the game does work better if you take it slow and plan your moves/shots, however it can be forgiving on the occasion that you slip up and simply have to go guns blazing. Thoroughly enjoyed everything this game had to offer, story and all.

This review is based on single player campaign only.
Sniping and "stealth". Too bad that the ONLY silenced weapon in this whole game is that ♥♥♥♥♥♥ british pistol which accuracy is best compared to a howitzer... So stealthing goes to the bin, plus the fact that AI spots you like hawk on steroids, so you pretty much have to spot the enemies and snipe them down. Silenced sniper rifle was probably too much to ask for. Maybe it would have been too OP. I don't know.
Another annoying aspect is how you can blow up the tanks by shooting the CAP of the fuel tanks... oh boy... Little bit too much Hollywood!
Besides all that, oh boy the game mechanics were so fun!! The slomo cinematics are nicely done and pretty much nothing beats the feeling when you can shoot off the bad guys balls. Outchie! :P

All in all funny little game. 3½ / 5

Shooting nazis in the face? Why not!

Graphics: The graphics are actually pretty decent and offer some really cool character detailing! The scenery surrounding are a basic mesh approach and you can see when walking up but otherwise it's fine.

Audio: The guns sound cool, the bombs sound cool but there is always bomb noises going off, I know you are in a war but it would good to turn that stuff off.

Controls: The controls are relatively simple to get used too. It is pickup and go with no fuss.

Game: The game has coop AND multiplayer which for me is amazing. You are an elite sniper basically behind enemies lines going through sniping people, setting traps and shooting some insane shots.
The story is short I found but does offer a decent time to enjoy, the multiplayer is where all the fun is and coop.

I like he fact you can place a bomb under a dead body to set a trap, throw a stone to distract enemies, set claymores and so much more. The slowmo bullet flying through the air and hitting a body part and seeing what happens is cool... Shooting body parts off and seeing it all happen in slowmo is a cool feature that made the serious.

There is not much to say about the story because it's so basic, it would give it away,

Would I recommend this game? Yes why not!

I completed this game to the credits, and even when I was halfway through, it had become a bore. The missions are repetitive, the gameplay is pretty bad, and the performance isnt very good. I'm not even sure if there was a strong plot, because I had toned out the monotone narration of the protagonist after about 5 minutes. From what little I gathered, the plot is practically non-existent, and there is no way to be interested in any of the characters.

This game's only stong point is its famous killcams which, by the end of the game, have become extremely repetitive and not very satisfying.
