In the first Sniper Elite 4 gameplay trailer, developer Rebellion shows off the new kill cams, takedowns, stealth abilities, shooting, and a little bit of sniping. At the very end of the video, there’s a tease for the Target Führer campaign mission, which is available to everyone who pre-orders the game:
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.
Karl’s mission has changed: Target Führer!
Players must destroy the imposing U-boat base and take down Hitler in as many ways as they can in this replayable campaign mission for 1-2 players.
Bundling together detailed camouflaged sleeves for the seven iconic WW2 rifles in Sniper Elite 4, the Camo Rifles Skin Pack is also included with pre-orders.
Here’s the description for Sniper Elite 4:
Welcome to Italy, 1943
Set in the aftermath of its award-winning predecessor, Sniper Elite 4 continues the series’ World War Two heritage by transporting players across the beautiful Italian peninsula, from sun-drenched Mediterranean coastal towns, to colossal Nazi mega structures, daunting forests and giddying mountain monasteries inspired by Monte Cassino.
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.
True Next-Generation Sniping
Running in native 1080p on both PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Sniper Elite 4 is the first game in the series built from the ground-up for next generation hardware.
With an expansive campaign for 1-2 players and dedicated co-op and adversarial multiplayer modes, Sniper Elite 4 aims to deliver the definitive World War Two shooter for a generation, with unrivalled sniping freedom across maps many times the size of those seen in Sniper Elite 3.
Sniper Elite 4, which Rebellion says is “the most anticipated WW2 shooter of this gaming generation,” will be available on February 14, 2017 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. On top of the $59.99 USD standard edition, an $89.99 USD Deluxe Edition is available through the PlayStation Store and bundles together the game and Season Pass.
