Developer- and Publisher-specific Articles: Sniper Elite
The British Army is calling up virtual snipers to once again stop the Nazi menace in Sniper Elite 3. As OSS Agent Karl Fairburne, players will be a part of the Long Range Desert Group as they push across North Africa and work towards destroying a new wonder weapon. Missions will take place in Tobruk, the Kasserine Pass, and through Gaberoun and Siwa Oases. Levels are said to be larger and more open than before, allowing for greater freedom of movement, while the x-ray kill cams more detailed. Versus and co-op multiplayer is also supported with a series of special challenges.
The Sniper Elite series will continue next year, according to developer Rebellion and publisher 505 Games. Sniper Elite 3, currently under development, will see OSS sniper Karl Fairburne doing his part in North Africa (judging by the logo). 505 Games plans on releasing the title next year for PC as well as both current and next-generation consoles.
Some more Sniper Elite V2 news this week. Following the announcement of a Wii U port, 505 has sent word that new DLC has been released for 360 and PS3. The St. Pierre DLC drop features a new side mission that sees our resilient sniper making his way to the western front to head off a counterattack led by General Rodebrecht. Fearing that Rodebrecht will turn the tide of the war, SHAEF sends word that he is to be eliminated and his service book retrieved as proof. Included in the pack is a new map, which includes St. Pierre village and the surrounding countryside, as well as two new weapons, the Lee Enfield No. 3 and the M1D Garand.
Sniper Elite V2, already available for PC as well as 360 and PS3, will be making its way to the Wii U this spring. 505 Games announced that Rebellion’s WWII shooter will feature a revamped control scheme that utilizes the GamePad’s touch screen. The game will also retain its kill cam view, the cinematic sequences that depict particularly skilful fatal shots in slow motion with the bullet passing through an x-ray of the victim to illustrate trajectory and damage.
505 Games has announced that Rebellion’s third-person tactical shooter, Sniper Elite V2, is now available for the 360, PC, and PS3. A reboot of 2005’s Sniper Elite, V2 features American OSS agent Karl Fairburne in a race through war-torn Berlin to uncover details about the V-2 rocket program before the Red Army. Described as a “detailed sniping simulation with advanced ballistics,” gamers can look forward to checking gravity, wind, and stability as they go for a kill shot—and if the shot’s good enough, an enhanced kill cam with x-ray detail will kick in to track the impact.
