The ‘Zombie Army’ is invading on March 6

Rebellion’s Zombie Army Trilogy will be marching onto Xbox One from March 6 and here’s some brand new screenshots to ponder over.

The self-published title combines the excellent Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army and Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army 2 plus a third never before seen campaign. The Nazi zombies were a cult sensation when they first appeared on the PC edition of  Sniper Elite V2 and now us console gamers can finally get in on the action.

Unfortunately Sniper Elite 3 Is A World War II Game

With the impending launch of next generation consoles, if you thought you’d never see the back of World War II which has been utterly rinsed dry of gameplay in the current gen period over the last seven and a half years – 505Games and Rebellion have dropped the bombshell today.

Recently we reported that Sniper Elite 3 was in the works for both current and next-gen consoles, but its story was not yet evident. In a press release it was confirmed that Sniper Elite 3 will continue the story of elite OSS sniper Karl Fairburne during World War II. Sniper Elite V2 was the surprise hit of last year, introducing millions of gamers to its mix of tense atmosphere and intense action. ThisisXbox rated the game a generous 7.5/10 because it was barely above average, however in the development for Sniper Elite 3, the team is currently focusing on creating all-new environments, a more refined gameplay experience and a brand new storyline.

Sniper Elite 3 will be released on PC, next-gen and current-gen consoles sometime during 2014.

Sniper Elite 3 For Current and Next-Gen in 2014

505 Games has announced to the popular gaming behemoth IGN that a follow up to Sniper Elite V2 is in the works and will be released for both current and next-gen consoles in 2014.

It is quoted that “following the worldwide success of Sniper Elite and Sniper Elite V2 released on PC, Microsoft Xbox 360 and Sony PlayStation 3, 505 Games believe in the extremely high potential of this brand.” 505 says that Sniper Elite V2 “gained a great worldwide success around 1.1 million copies” sold “since the April 2012 launch to the end of December.”

ThisisXbox rated Sniper Elite V2 7.5/10 last May:

Sniper Elite V2 falls into the good-but-not-great category of shooters, it’s not boring in gameplay at all and some parts of the game are a real pleasure to see. One of the highlights for instance is the X-Ray Kill Cam that’s activated upon successfully dealing a heavy damaging blow to your enemy. In slow motion the bullet tears through the air before forcefully impounding itself into the body, and you get to see organs tear and burst, bones shatter and your enemy dies on the ground in pool of his own blood. Another is the ability to pull out your binoculars and tag the enemy as you plan your attack, but it’s just a real shame that the environments don’t feel like they are interacting with your journey.

No specifics on the story content or multiplayer elements have been released, but when details are announced in the near future we’ll keep you posted soldiers.
