Sniper Elite 4
Sniper Elite 4

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 game is a remastered and expanded version of the classic shooter developed by Rebellion and released in 2005. Sniper Elite V2 is set in the besieged Berlin, when the World War II is reaching its end.

Also, the killcam system was improved, displaying an x-ray animation of one's bullet damaging the body of an enemy.
