Gameplay Trailer Introduces You To New-Gen X-Ray Kills

We had a chance to go hands-on with Sniper Elite 3 at PAX East, and the upgrades to mission design and AI have us pretty excited about where the series is headed. In a new trailer, you’ll get to see some of what we did.

The Sniper Elite series has become known for its brutal and gruesome x-ray kills, but the franchise is much more than that. Sniper Elite 3 introduces levels that are more open and encourage creativity and player choice.

There are nooks and crannies that allow you to get the jump on patrols and overwatch guards, sniper perches that function a bit like Assassin’s Creed viewpoints, and enemy AI that is both clever and more realistic (we covered this last one in our preview). The title arrives just in time for the most patriotic of holidays. You can see more in the video above.

Sniper Elite 3 will be out on June 27 for PC. Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 3 gamers can look for the title on July 1.

  • I'm pretty excited about this game. And it's going to be $50 instead of $60.
  • honestly i only played the first one, i thought it was really damn cool, you never really had many options for long distance sniping simulators with good bullet drop physics.

  • Im actually very excited to play this game. And seeing it on the xbox one is going to be an awesome visual treat
  • Those x-ray kills tho!
  • Some historians argue the biggest reason the Nazis lost the war was they took like, a minute and a half to forget somebody had just killed six of their men and blew up a tank.
  • Looking excellent again as well. And a ten dollar price drop is in the future? Hmm... Sweet.

  • On one hand I love the idea of playing as a elite sniper, the promise of open battle fields and multiple tactical approaches intrigue me. On the other hand the kill-cam is a bit too much for me. I realize that it is one of the main features of the series, but I am afraid that I will hesitate to play this game if there is not an option to dial down some of the gore.
  • As long as the patrols don't spot you from 300 yards away like SE 2, I'm in.
  • This game looks pretty good. I really hope its good.

  • No Wii U version? Really? I actually played through V2 on the Wii U and was hoping the sequel would come as well.
  • Nice when games were just a straight up $50. . .

  • For anyone getting it for PC, you can pre-order it on the Rebellion Gamestore webpage for $40 currently, and get a Steam key. Just wanted to help save people another $10.
  • loved 2 sure this one will be the same cant wait.

  • It looks like a wonderful combination of the first two games. I'm pretty excited!

  • Excited for this game, I loved the past 2 adaptations plus the stand alone co-op content

  • Can't wait to play this, looks like they finally got a good budget to put towards development and did great with it.

  • The open objectives and the fact that enemies don't immediately know where you are after one shot means that I may check this out. The previous game's demo kinda ticked me off when I'd fire one shot and instantly have to move. Not quite realistic.

  • This game looks like its gonna be so tight.

  • Shame they won't be adding heat effect in to the ballistics given they are taking it to the African theatre.

  • Quite enjoyed the second game. Africa? Sold. That's a WW2 setting I've not seen in a long time. Looking like some sort of Arkham/Assassin's/Splinter Cell direction on top of the prior excellence? Yes.
