The second exciting chapter in DEATHSTORM, a BRAND NEW mini-campaign for Sniper Elite 4 is OUT NOW on PlayStation 4 (EU/North America), Xbox One and PC!

DEATHSTORM PART 2: INFILTRATION

New to Deathstorm? It’s a 3-part campaign for 1-2 players set after the events of Sniper Elite 4 as Karl Fairburne moves North through Italy. Remember all three new campaign missions can be purchased separately, or come included in the Season Pass or Digital Deluxe Editions.

Karl must infiltrate the town, find a prominent Italian scientist and rescue his wife – a crucial Allied informant – before it’s too late.

Set at dusk amidst the winding alleys, yawning rooftops and lofty towers of a venerable walled city, Deathstorm Part 2 offers an atmospheric and tactically varied environment packed with deadly opportunity, a new elite enemy unit and an explosive new weapon …

URBAN EXPANSION

New content doesn’t end there; The URBAN ASSAULT EXPANSION PACK also arrives on April 25th packed with 8 urban-themed rifle skins, male and female ghillie characters and 3 iconic new weapons: the Winchester, Sten and Walther PPK.

Why we’re launching Sniper Elite 4 in 2017

Dear Sniper Elite fans past, present and future!

We hope that you’re all enjoying the sights, sounds and megatonnes of E3! Of course we’re going to be in Los Angeles too with Sniper Elite 4 and Battlezone, so expect to see lots of live footage, gameplay clips and more over the next week, but we also have some more news too that we want to talk about…

Today we’re announcing that Sniper Elite 4 is launching February 14th, 2017.

When we originally revealed the game back in March, our plan was to release this year, and this was only reinforced when our pre-Alpha build was received incredibly well by those who got to see it at GDC in San Francisco. 

Was it was nerve-wracking showing the game for the first time, and quite a lot earlier in production than we normally do? Absolutely, but in the end we felt confident the game was where we wanted it to be. I’d go as far as saying the demo had some of the best preview feedback we’ve ever had.  

So when we sat down recently to decide a launch date, we had a decision to make. Do we stick to 2016 as planned many moons ago, or do we give the team just a little more time to help them deliver beyond the promise that the game has already shown, to hone the game’s best features, or even add new ones that previously might have been left on the cutting-room floor?

It wasn’t an easy decision but for us it seems like a win-win for both Rebellion and Sniper Elite fans.

This is why we’re proud to be completely independent. Being independent means you can make changes when things are going really well, rather than just reacting when things don’t go to plan. 

We know a lot of you will be disappointed that you won’t get to play Sniper Elite 4 this year, but we hope you understand our decision and enjoy all the new footage and details from our beautiful “Viaduct” level this week. 

We’re also heading to some public shows in the UK and Europe in the near future, so look out for us there and make sure to say hello!

Thank you as ever, for supporting independent UK games development.

Chris and Jason Kingsley, Rebellion Co-Founders

Sniper Elite 4 announced for PS4, Xbox One and PC.

We’re delighted to announce the next game in the 10 million selling Sniper Elite series is launching this year for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC

Set in the immediate aftermath of its award-winning predecessor, Sniper Elite 4 continues the series’ World War Two heritage by transporting players to the beautiful and diverse environments of Italy in 1943.

Covert agent and elite marksman Karl Fairburne must fight alongside the brave men and women of the Italian Resistance to help free their country from the yoke of Fascism, and defeat a terrifying new threat with the potential to halt the Allied fightback in Europe before it’s even begun.

If his mission fails, there will be no Operation Overlord, no D-Day landings, and no Victory in Europe.

Jason responds to Sniper Elite 4 rumours

Earlier today (Monday Feb 15th, 2016) VideoGamer.com posted a story about rumours of a Sniper Elite 4 project in development.

David Scammell at VideoGamer did kindly give Rebellion a chance to respond to before publishing the story, and here is Jason Kingsley’s response in full.

“To be honest we’re flattered that people are actively searching out for a new Sniper Elite title, and we certainly don’t mind being mentioned next to projects like Black Ops 3 and Unreal!” Kingsley said in a statement provided to us this afternoon. “However the person in question doesn’t work for Rebellion and we haven’t announced a new entry in the Sniper Elite series.”

“Last year we celebrated the Sniper Elite series’ 10th birthday and 10 millionth sale, so our IP is still hugely important to both Rebellion and independent UK games development. We’re actually gearing up to announce a new Rebellion game soon, so expect to hear more from us before GDC!”

In short? We can’t confirm the unnannounced projects we’re working on, but expect some news very soon!
