Rebellion is bringing its next iteration in the Sniper Elite franchise on Feb. 14, 2017. Sniper Elite 4 will be the first new release on current generation consoles and its looking great. To help get gamers ready for the story that is coming, Rebellion has released a new Sniper Elite 4 Story Trailer.
As you can see in the trailer above, the game takes place during 1943. Players will invade Sicily and use that location to move forward. They will use that location as a springboard for the invasion of the country at large.
Gamers will assume the role of Karl Fairburne. Through him, they will shoot their way through Italy to help liberate the country from the force that controls it. As their time in Sniper Elite 4 goes, gamers will apparently “uncover a terrifying Nazi technology threatening the whole of Europe.”
Sniper Elite 4 will be receiving other videos leading up to its launch next year. Each will give players a look into a different facet of the game’s narrative. Everything from characters to locations to subplots will be showcased in these upcoming features. These will give players a deeper look into the game’s campaign.
Gamers will look to overthrow the regime of Mussolini as Sniper Elite 4 narrative designer Colin Harvey detailed. “In Sniper Elite 4, Karl is plunged into a country that’s been under the yoke of Mussolini’s Fascism for over two decades. Political opposition to the regime was either crushed early on or escaped abroad,” Harvey said.
Sniper Elite 4 will be debuting on PS4, Xbox One and PC Feb. 14, 2017. We Write Things will have news from our interview with Rebellion in the days ahead. Stick around here at We Write Things for much more on Sniper Elite 4.
