PC PS4 XONE

Sniper Elite 4 for PC, PS4 and XONE is the fourth installment of the popular first-person tactical shooters in which we assume the role of a trained sniper who fights on different fronts of the World War II. The production was developed by Rebellion – a British studio. Contrary to many contemporary titles in the genre, the Sniper Elite series puts a much greater emphasis on realistic recreation of bullet trajectory and behavior. The first game in the franchise, released in 2005, took us to the besieged Berlin right before the end of the war. In the 2012 Sniper Elite V2, the players returned to the capital of the Third Reich, but the developers expanded on the gameplay systems and modernized the formula of the original. Sniper Elite III: Afrika from 2014 allowed us to fight Germans in the North Africa. In 2016, Rebellion announced that the series sold over 10 million copies worldwide.

Plot

In Sniper Elite 4, we assume the role of Karl Fairburne, the protagonist of the previous installments of the series, who is sent from North Africa to the Apennine Peninsula. Alongside the Italian resistance movement, he is trying to help Allies who are pushing north against the fiercely resisting Germans.

Mechanics

Sniper Elite 4 for PC, PS4 and XONE expands the solutions of Sniper Elite III: Afrika. Our task is to eliminate subsequent targets as efficiently as possible. The players have complete freedom in choosing whether to eliminate them from afar or otherwise. The vast sandbox levels let us be creative in this respect. While moving, we have to be wary of German patrols as well as military installations and vehicles. The maps depict Nazi fortresses, picturesque Italian towns, forests, and monasteries. When taking a shot, we have to consider not only the enemy’ position but also such factors as the speed and direction of the wind as well as, for example, the gravity impact on the bullet’s trajectory covering the given distance.

Game modes

The story campaign can be played either solo or in cooperation mode for two players. The game also offers multiplayer modes with the options known from the previous installments of the Sniper Elite series.

Technical aspects

The game is the first installment of the Sniper Elite series which was designed unencumbered by the technical limitations of Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. It allowed the developers to introduce enhancements and fixes that improve the performance and graphics of the title.
