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.

It's pretty funny. This game is like that ONE FART you have been preparing for ages... You know you have it in you ...BUT you're not quite there yet.. You shoot blanks till that one morning when you let it ripp .. .Even the neighbours cower in fear for that one moment in your life... when it was simply ... Perfection. The Loud. The precise. The pure lenght. and deadly as ♥♥♥♥.

That "shot" was a masterpiece... Play this game while having a german sausage.

You will catch my drift. I assure you.

Love the game, and with a close-knit group of mates to play multiplayer with it's brilliant! Just finished it, the campaign made sense and wasn't overly glorified and the elite sniper teams were difficult to deal with, jumped into the deep end on Sniper Elite difficulty and had a blast!

Positives:

:: Nice sniper ballistics, somewhat realistic.
:: Levels are open, giving you multiple options
:: Replays are awesome (though it does get repetitive)
:: You can be quite creative with your kills so it's definitely quite fun, also there's a scoring mechanic on your performance.

Negatives:

:: Graphics look dated.
:: Story's not very good, didn't like the protagonist either, there's virtually zero depth or character development (though it's not really a big deal in a game like this).
:: I'd have liked there to be more upgrades and loadouts.
:: The difficulty's not very well balanced.

Very fun killcams, short campaign (a couple of days and you're done), limited number of weapons, terrible character movements, great snipe physics, nice graphics. Must be played at max difficulty, or it's nearly impossible to die. AI is sometimes really stupid.
Recommended overall if you like sniping, WW2, exploding bones & organs. Not recommended if you like open world games (this maps are practically corridors) or super realistic war games (you can make a V2 or a tank explode by shooting the shining red fuel cap...)

No question this game is pretty much fun anyway!

"The game that making the shot rifle count"
A assassin game attack is to represent this stealth game works. A prominent industry, the Golden Globes. The game has touched the hearts of many men crying. This is just a good game.
For this game called Sniper Elite 2, a hard stone never break 5/5

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!

MINIMALISTIC REVIEW FOR SNIPER ELITE V2:

Note: I got this game for free (during their free forever offer).

Pros:
- World War 2, bruh.
- Cool graphics.
- No glitches.
- No bugs.
- Challenging missions (go for Sniper Elite difficulty and have fun dying).
- X-RAY VISION KILLCAM (better than MLG 360 no scope).
- Physics are not floppy.
- GUI is fantastic.
- Kill Hitler (DLC)!!!!
- The gameplay is like Tom Clancy stuff, but WW2 version. Fleek AF.

Cons:
- Limited weaponry (without DLCs).
- Few people online (please come here and play online).
- Story is... not understandable at some point (sorry, maybe it's just me).

Rating: 9/10 will shoot balls and view them on X-ray vision killcam again. Cheers.

Sniper Elite V2 was a great game. I first got it for free on my old pc and played it. It was fun but my pc wasn't good enough to handle it. After getting my gaming pc, i've been playing it, and I seriously enjoyed it! It's really brutal and obviously not for the faint of heart but it's a thrilling and super fun experience. The game makes you feel skilled similiar to games like CS:GO and that really attracted me to it. If it's on sale or something for like 10-15 dollars, I'd get it. It's worth it and a blast to play. :D

Sniper Elite V2 is a fun sniping orientated 3rd person shooter. In this game you play as a generic American White male with no backstory sent to single handedly take out hundreds of nazis. Bullet ballistics can be tweaked to be affected by wind, gravity, or nothing for a casual experience. The game does allow you to equip a secondary SMG and pistol but close quarters combat is usually not the correct play because you die very easily in this game. Enemy AI is competent enough to try to flank you while a sniper or mg nest pins you down.

The shooting feels and sounds great. Also the by now iconic gore kill cams of the series are of course present and do a good job at breaking up the monotony of the otherwise very basic combat. There's nothing like seeing the same bullet enter the heart of one enemy and exit out te testicles of another. :) The kill cam can be turned off or lessened.

Stealth is by far the most fun and effective way to play this game. However this is where the game's greatest issue surfaces. While the original sniper elite was about open levels where stealth was incredibly encouraged, Sniper Elite V2's levels feel like guided linear corridors in comparison. Stealth is also just not always an option sometimes which is frustrating.

Enemy AI is for the most part decent. However, one annoyance was that if you are detected by one enemy soldier, for some reason literally all other enemies in the vicinity will immediately know your exact location.

The game also has co-op missions/hoard mode which has no one playing it atm and multiplayer which is still active with a very small community. That being said as someone in US WEST, the closest server to me had a ping of over 500.

Overall the base game is great fun but even for the somewhat low base price of 20 USD I say perhaps wait for a sale unless you really love sniping games. I usually take my time with games but for this game the main campaign literally took me only 6 hours to beat on the "medium" difficulty.

As for the DLC, Neudorf features an open map that shows that the majority of the main game's maps should've been like. Aka decent sized maps where you can choose how to tackle the objective and use stealth. Landwehr is the hardest one by far which 100% requires stealth or you will lose. St. Pierre is extremely mediocre. All the mentioned DLC take about an hour each to beat which honestly isn't enough content for full price. Kill Hitler might seem cool at first... that is until you realize that you are paying 8 USD for a mission that is literally 20 minutes long.

I like this Game very much, I still play it!
The Graphic is not bad and the game is very realistic! You can change it in the settings if you like to play very realistic or very easy.

I recommend this game really! You must play this game if you like strategy and shooter!

The Sniping is super fun the slow-mo x-ray cam never gets old and if it did it can be switched off. I like the mechanics of using sounds to mask your shot sounds. The graphics for its age are decent. The sound design feels really weak though all dialogue seems to have an echo as if it took place in some church.

What annoys me are some technical shortcomings. The mouse imputs seem to be awkward. No consistent sensitivity settings just two arbitrary sliders and the x & y axes seem to have different calibrations. So it took me a while to set a playable sensitivity.

The movement feels clunky too often I awkwardly bumped into stuff.

Also I found that during missions it was hard to plan ahead without having played the mission beforehand. This allows for multiple replays of a single mission to really ace it but on the first attempt it is very hard to foresee what lies ahead.

To me the game was fun at first but as the fun from the nice sniping mechanics wore off soon and the other shortcomings of the game annoyed me more and more.

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
