Sniper Elite 4 (XONE)
Action 14 February 2017
The fourth major installment in the popular tactical first-person shooter series by Rebellion, in which we assume the role of a trained sniper fighting on various fronts of the World War II. In Sniper Elite 4, we control Karl Fairburne, the protagonist of the previous games, who is sent from North Africa to the Apennine Peninsula. His mission is to cooperate with the Italian resistance in order to help the Allied forces that are pushing to the north. As far as gameplay mechanics are concerned, the game develops the ideas of its predecessor, and our task is to efficiently eliminate subsequent targets; how are we going to do it is entirely up to us. The game takes place on vast sandbox maps and, as usual, puts a great emphasis on realistic recreation of bullet behavior depending on the atmospheric conditions. The title is meant to be played solo or in cooperation mode, although it does not lack for other multiplayer features known from its predecessors.

The third installment in a popular first person shooter developed by Polish developer CI Games. Unlike the previous games in the series, most of the development process was done by a second party studio, comprised of creators of game franchises like Sniper Elite, Full Spectrum Warrior, and Killzone. The game features a growing conflict between Russia and the United States. The player takes on a role of a former US Marine sniper sent to Georgia in order to eliminate key targets and prevent the conflict from becoming an open war. In contrast to the previous Sniper Elite games, this one offers the player much more freedom. In combat you can use not only accurately recreated sniper rifles and modern drones, but also impromptu weapons and traps. The title awards stealth eliminations and features very realistic bullet physics.
