Sniper Elite 4 continues the story of jut-jawed, hawkeyed hero Karl Fairburne in World War II this time setting him down in Italy in 1943, on a mission preceding the Allied liberation of Europe. The game will feature a single-player campaign as well as co-operative and competitive multiplayer modes.The first Sniper Elite launched on Xbox in 2005, then went quiet for seven years before returning in 2012 with Sniper Elite V2. Sniper Elite 3 was a surprise sales hit, particularly in Europe, when it launched in the early summer of 2014, typically a quiet period on the games calendar. Despite middling review scores over its lifespan, the series has still built a large and loyal following. Sniper Elite 4 will launch on PlayStation 4, Windows PC and Xbox One.
