Sniper Elite 3

505 Games Prepares For Launch With New Trailer

505 Games has released a new trailer commemorating the release of the latest iteration of its sniper action series. For those unfamiliar, Sniper Elite 3 puts you in the shoes of Karl Fairburne, an OSS agent whose primary directive is, you guessed it, killing Nazis.

Sniper Elite 3 takes you to a new location: northern Africa. While still set in World War 2, the environments look to be a far cry from Berlin, the setting of the previous two games. The game promises to bring larger environments and to provide more choices in how you complete your missions.

For those in fear that this third iteration would lose any of its signature gore or sniper action, consider putting your worries to rest. The trailer below shows the new environments, gameplay styles, and the gut-wrenching kill-cams.

Sniper Elite 3 releases today on Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC. Keep an eye on the site for our review. In the meantime, read our hands-on preview with the game.

  • Playing this right now. Man I miss WWII shooters.

  • Can't wait to get this game.

  • Been out since 06/27 on Steam :P

  • Just picked this up at lunch, can't wait to waste Nazi's when I get home!

  • I didn't even know about this game a couple of days ago. Then I was watching the Angry Joe Show on YouTube, and within the first two x-ray shots I was online ordering my copy. I just wish the PS4 version was 10 bucks more. Oh well, I have a feeling this is gonna be a blast to play.

  • Just got this game today! I'm having a blast! It's way better than I expected.

  • Picked it up after work, can't wait to play this series for the first time.

  • Ok GI, I have one question for you on your review of sniper elite, you gave it a *** score. You mentioned the game is buggy and the AI is off its mark, how is it different than any other Xbox, PS game out there? Sure they will be a guaranteed patch to fix it but still.
