Fans hungry for more info on SNIPER ELITE 4 can now watch ” Italy 1943 “, the first in a series of new story trailers for 2017’s first AAA shooter.

The new Sniper Elite 4 trailer shows women waiting in lines for food rations, public executions and riots. And it’ll be Lt. Fairburne’s job to find a favorable path through the chaos. Those interested in learning more about what the series protagonist will encounter in Italy are also encourage to read a lengthy PlayStation Blog post from Sniper Elite 4 Narrative Designer Colin Harvey.

It’s 1943. Franklin D. Roosevelt and Winston Churchill meet in Casablanca to discuss the Allies’ next step. The Americans favor pushing across the Channel, through France, to attack Germany’s industrial areas. By contrast, Churchill argues an invasion of Italy will allow the Allies to attack the Nazis’ “soft underbelly” and take the pressure off the Red Army in the East. Churchill’s view prevails.

This is where Sniper Elite 4 begins. Ahead of the planned invasion of Italy, the Allies have intelligence concerning Hitler’s latest wunderwaffe (wonder weapon) and dispatch Lieutenant Karl Fairburne to a secluded Italian island to investigate. Subsequent assignments take him from a beautiful coastal village on the Italian mainland to a vast, verdant forest region surrounding a viaduct. And of course, we’ve designed the game so you can take advantage of the spectacular scenery. Choose to climb up high for the perfect vantage point from which to snipe your adversaries, or look for a secret tunnel to enable your surprise attack, whatever it takes to complete your mission. – Sniper Elite 4’s Narrative Designer Colin Harvey.

Sniper Elite 4 is slated for release on 14th February, 2017, for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and the PC.
