New Sniper Elite 4 Gameplay Footage is Brutal

Sniper Elite 4 is coming this year, and Rebellion Developments have been generous enough to show us some hefty Sniper Elite 4 gameplay footage from their latest stealth-based shooter.

The footage is from a pre-alpha stage of development so don’t expect the final version to look exactly like this video, but having said that the game is looking beautiful enough already considering the early stage of development.

We are witnessing a hands-off demo of the title courtesy of Eurogamer. Sniper Elite 4 is looking to heavily expand on the previous entry, with many more methods of dispatching enemies including booby traps and enhanced melee kills.

Of course the x-ray kill camera makes it’s glorious return, this time displaying the gory deaths by way of your fist and knife as well as shrapnel kills from exploding barrels. The trademark bullet through the head, and other more sensitive body parts, makes a welcome return too.

The map on display in the video is the smallest of all Sniper Elite 4 levels available, however it’s very interesting to note that it is in fact three times bigger than any of the levels from Sniper Elite 3.

As per the rest of the game the setting is that of Italy during World War II, and is taking place shortly after the events of the third installment. This time around it seems the player will be able to have more freedom to traverse their surroundings by climbing walls and setting traps.

A comparison is made to Assassin’s Creed in the video that isn’t too far from that of this Sniper Elite 4 gameplay, just with a lot more guns of course. Sniper Elite 4 will release this year on Xbox One, Playstation 4 and PC.

Rebellion have no knowledge of Nintendo NX so far, but would be keen to work with Nintendo like they have done previously.
