Sniper Elite 4’s unique blend of methodical, ball-busting sharpshooting is unleashed in stores tomorrow for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One, but there’s more than meets the eye to Rebellion’s latest World War II-based shooter. This time around, the developer has made a concerted effort to improve things across the board, with improved gameplay mechanics, pseudo open-world battlegrounds, and enhanced AI, not to mention the ability to play through the main campaign with a buddy in tow.
This time around, the action takes place in the year 1943 as grizzly sharpshooter Karl Fairburne travels to Italy to aid the resistance against the Fascist invaders, where he finds himself battling Nazis in picturesque villages, sprawling enemy encampments, docklands, winding streets, and more. The gruesome X-Ray kills are back once again, and this time they’re complemented by both melee and shrapnel variations to widen the series’ trademark visceral showstoppers.
The critics have spoken, so here’s our full Sniper Elite 4 reviews roundup. Don’t forget to check out PSU’s Sniper Elite 4 review to see what we made of Rebellion’s latest shooter.
