Sniper Elite 4 Announced, Coming This Year

A brand new iteration in the popular Sniper Elite series is heading our way — the first to be exclusively on current-generation platforms; 2014’s Sniper Elite 3 was spread across current and previous generation consoles — developer Rebellion Developments have confirmed today. Following the events of the third instalment, and continuing the series’ World War 2 background, players will explore the diverse environments of Italy in 1943.

Rebellion have stated the game will run in native 1080p on both PS4 and Xbox One (a PC version will also be available alongside) with the developer promising no restraints due to older hardware as players explore a wide variety of environments across the Mediterranean country. Sniper Elite 4 is due out this year, though so far no specific date has been given. Check out the official teaser below.
