A three-issue US-format mini-series based on the global bestselling videogame series lands in August!
Based on the global bestselling videogame, Sniper Elite: Resistance is the brand new comic book from Rebellion.
This high-octane three-issue US-format mini-series, written by Keith Richardson and with art from Patrick Goddard, goes on sale 29th August ($3.99).
Sniper Elite: Resistance is an adrenaline-fuelled thrill-ride set during the darkest days of World War Two - a sure fire hit for gamers and comic book readers alike!
In occupied France, Allied Special Operations Executive hero Karl Fairburne parachutes into the town of Angouleme in a bid to stop the shipment of a new German anti-aircraft weapon - the situation is more complex, and dangerous, than he could ever have imagined.
The first issue has two equally-orderable variants by Goddard and Sniper Elite videogame artist Edouard Groult!
Sniper Elite: Resistance will be available from all good comic book stores.
ALL pre-orders will receive the TARGET FÜHRER campaign mission and CAMO RIFLES SKIN PACK which includes detailed camouflaged sleeves for the game's seven iconic WW2 rifles.
Pre-orders are also available for SNIPER ELITE 4: DELUXE EDITION!
This value-packed digital bundle includes SNIPER ELITE 4, TARGET FÜHRER, the CAMO RIFLES SKIN PACK and ALL of the game's DLC content.
Back by popular demand...
With many millions of views on YouTube and countless gameplay hours logged, the series' renowned Hitler-assassinating bonus missions have been a fan-pleasing tradition since Sniper Elite V2.
In TARGET FÜHRER, players will once again set their sights on history's most notorious tyrant, in a forgotten corner of the Mediterranean where a secret Nazi U-boat facility threatens Allied shipping. When agent Karl Fairburne attempts to assassinate the base's commander, he finds his target already dead, executed in person by a shadowy visitor.
We hope that you’re all enjoying the sights, sounds and megatonnes of E3! Of course we’re going to be in Los Angeles too with Sniper Elite 4 and Battlezone, so expect to see lots of live footage, gameplay clips and more over the next week, but we also have some more news too that we want to talk about...
Today we’re announcing that Sniper Elite 4 is launching February 14th, 2017.
When we originally revealed the game back in March, our plan was to release this year, and this was only reinforced when our pre-Alpha build was received incredibly well by those who got to see it at GDC in San Francisco. Was it nerve-wracking showing the game for the first time, and quite a lot earlier in production than we normally do? Absolutely, but in the end we felt confident the game was where we wanted it to be. I’d go as far as saying the demo had some of the best preview feedback we’ve ever had.
So when we sat down recently to decide a launch date, we had a decision to make. Do we stick to 2016 as planned many moons ago, or do we give the team just a little more time to help them deliver beyond the promise that the game has already shown, to hone the game’s best features, or even add new ones that previously might have been left on the cutting-room floor?
It wasn’t an easy decision but for us it seems like a win-win for both Rebellion and Sniper Elite fans.
This is why we’re proud to be completely independent. Being independent means you can make changes when things are going really well, rather than just reacting when things don’t go to plan.
We know a lot of you will be disappointed that you won’t get to play Sniper Elite 4 this year, but we hope you understand our decision and enjoy all the new footage and details from our beautiful “Viaduct” level this week.
We’re also heading to some public shows in the UK and Europe in the near future, so look out for us there and make sure to say hello!
Thank you as ever, for supporting independent UK games development.
