Sniper Elite 4 was announced back in March and came with a teaser trailer. While anticipating the release on February 14, 2017, we're given a story trailer that gives further details on the game's story.
Narrative designer on Sniper Elite 4, Colin Harvey describes the opening scene.
"Franklin D. Roosevelt and Winston Churchill meet in Casablanca to discuss the Allies’ next step. The Americans favour pushing across the Channel, through France, to attack Germany’s industrial areas. By contrast, Churchill argues an invasion of Italy will allow the Allies to attack the Nazis’ “soft underbelly” and take the pressure off the Red Army in the East. Churchill’s view prevails […] Ahead of the planned invasion of Italy, the Allies have intelligence concerning Hitler’s latest wunderwaffe (wonder weapon) and dispatch Lieutenant Karl Fairburne to a secluded Italian island to investigate."
Many missions in-game take Lieutenant Karl Fairburne to many locales in Italy, including a beautiful coastal village to vast forest regions. With environments being crucial for the Sniper Elite series, the varied scenery can only do good for the latest installment. What do you think of the story and new landscapes in this video?
