Sniper Elite 3 Debut Gameplay Footage Released

Taking you back to the World War 2 era, Sniper Elite 3 will put you in the shoes of Karl Fairburne again. This time around, the OSS Operative and elite sniper will be scavenging enemies in the North African region though. The first trailer shows just how impressive his sniping skills are.

Unbelievably impressive is the fact that Fairburne can blow up an army jeep just with a single well placed bullet. That is what the trailer tells us at least. Positioned atop a hill he fist blows the brains out of a German officer before aiming for their jeep’s engine to take care of those who are escaping.

Set in the time of WW2, Sniper Elite 3 plays from the perspective of the allies against the Germans where our protagonist will be charged with a game changing mission. A hunt for a secret German technology will take him through Africa amid of course a lot of sniping.

The 1 minute 24 second long trailer doesn’t give much away apart from the blowing up of a German jeep but it does take you back in time against the notorious Tiger Tanks that stand in your way towards the ultimate goal.

A press release by developer Rebellion accompanied the video points out a greater focus on sandbox styled gameplay as well as the game’s popular “kill cam” which has been advanced to “vehicle shredding levels” this time around.

Being originally announced on August 23, Sniper Elite 3 is slated for a 2014 launch across platforms including Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
