The lights are on
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.

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.
Looking excellent again as well. And a ten dollar price drop is in the future? Hmm... Sweet.
This game looks pretty good. I really hope its good.
Nice when games were just a straight up $50. . .
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.
