Sniper Elite 3 Release Date, Pre-order Bonus Announced
Let’s kill Hitler… again!
If you pre-ordered Sniper Elite V2 back in 2012, you received a bonus mission: Kill Hitler! Well, Rebellion is at it again with Sniper Elite 3. Alongside the release date announcement of June 27 for PC, July 1 for consoles, Rebellion revealed the pre-order bonus mission, Hunt The Grey Wolf.
The Grey Wolf? That’s the Allied code name for Adolph Hitler. Your mission? Shoot him good.
“Hitler and his double have embarked upon a clandestine trip to the Libyan port town of Tobruk in 1942,” Rebellion says in its synopsis. “In order to prepare for this mission, and that crucial final shot, OSS Agent Karl Fairburne must infiltrate the ancient streets and crumbling rooftops of the German-held town using stealth and distraction. Featuring an expansive open environment, and randomized target identities, journals and locations, no two playthroughs will be the same.”
Sniper Elite V2 appeared big and open, but it was really a linear experience that pushed players down a set path. That severely limited the creative options for getting through missions. That’s why I’m looking forward to the “three times larger” more open maps of Sniper Elite 3.
