A few days ago Rebellion released the first gameplay trailer for Sniper Elite 4, as well as a teaser for (yet again), hunting down der Führer. You might recall that the previous installment, Sniper Elite 3 had a mission titled, "Hunt the Grey Wolf" in which the player had the option to take down Hitler.

Sniper Elite 4 - First Gameplay Trailer

Remember to set the YouTube video quality to 1080p; I hope the final product will look as promised. Rebellion didn't state on which platform the footage was captured, but it looks gorgeous at times. Feedback so far from critics who got to play Sniper Elite 4 range from "Really polished, really good looking (Eurogamer), to "Bigger, more badass, more beautiful" (Digital Spy).

As you'll see in the trailer, Sniper Elite 4 includes the trademark X-Ray kill cam system, stealth gameplay, sniping, as well as takedowns. Maps include a wide variety of vantage points and opportunities for different combat styles, including environment kills. 

Our biggest critique against Sniper Elite 3 was the inaccurate portrayal of its African setting. I hope Rebellion gives more attention to the historical setting of Italy 1943 as it marked a distinct period in World War 2 history.  

We will update the article as more information releases.
