For now, it is planned to appear 3 expansions that will significantly increase the hours of play with new missions, territories and new challenges for our sniper. In addition, it also includes a lot of extra content for multiplayer, not just for individual mode. Four new missions for 1 or 2 players, new weaponry available to kill our enemies in more effective ways, consisting of new weapons never seen before in the franchise.
We will also unlock 9 new characters to play in multiplayer mode, each with its default skin. And the most interesting thing, and that is one of the innovations of this fourth episode of Sniper Elite, is that it will grant us access to a huge amount of personalization elements of our armament, between themed skins and camouflage, aesthetic additions, … To create unique weapons. Remember that this product in a Season pass, so it is necessary to have the base game to access all the content.
Sniper Elite 4 Season Pass is also available on XBox One.
With gameplay that can shock, amuse and satisfy in the same slowed heartbeat, Sniper Elite 4 is the best game in the series. While it graphics, story and characters can feel a little flat, the gameplay has always been the focus, and is so perfectly tuned to make the rest seem inconsequential.
Sniper Elite 4 is one of those games that has something for everyone. Being a borderline recluse, I was attracted to the idea of playing as a lone wolf, but the multiplayer co-op Overwatch game was even better!
A hearty improvement on Sniper Elite 3 that embraces freeform play, gets better in co-op, and most importantly lets us shoot things from very far away.
Its stealth and action mechanics may be simplistic, but they're functional and regularly enjoyable. And the maps--with their impressive scale, open-ended objectives, and clever level design--coalesce these disparate systems into a creative and fulfilling whole. There are still some issues with AI inconsistency, a bland story, and some dull competitive multiplayer, but it finally feels like this series is living up to its long-standing potential.
Sniper Elite 4 is a very safe sequel - it doesn't introduce revolutionary changes but expands and improves on the things that are well known. If something isn't broken don't fix it - that's a good approach. At the same time this game quite often looks like a copy of its predecessor - the same issues are mixed with some cool improvements. All in all, fans should be really happy.
With the fourth entry of Sniper Elite, a franchise built on delivering on that feeling, developer Rebellion has created a well-rounded and empowering sandbox shooter.
It really is testament to the gruesome enjoyability of those hyper gory killcams that, even after four games, the sniping continues to be satisfying enough to warrant a look in. Sniper Elite 4 doesn’t miss its target, then, but it plays things safe enough to guarantee the kill without any undue risks.
