“In SNIPER ELITE 4, Karl is plunged into a country that’s been under the yoke of Mussolini’s Fascism for over two decades. Political opposition to the regime was either crushed early on or escaped abroad. Now, though, discontent is growing…”

It is great to see that British software and development is not only alive and well, but through Rebellion’s efforts, actually flourishing. Sold Out is delighted to be the harbour master for Rebellion’s boxed console journey.”
We’re extremely excited to be working alongside Sold Out again after the huge success of Zombie Army Trilogy, and this way we can produce the most successful Sniper Elite game to date, not only digitally, but also at retail.
Sold Out is also extending its USA publishing relationship with U&I distribution who they previously worked with on Zombie Army Trilogy to again bring the game to the US retail.
Stay tuned for more news but in the meantime why dont you check out the teaser trailer below and drop us a comment on what you would love to see in the coming Sniper Elite game?
Sniper Elite 4 will be released in both boxed and digital formats later this year.
Independent developer and publisher Rebellion has revealed that the next game in the Sniper Elite series is launching this year.
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.
