Sniper Elite 3 Gets July Release Date

By Marc Caccamise, 2 years ago
505 Games and Rebellion have announced today that Sniper Elite 3 will be releasing for both the Xbox One and Xbox 360 on July 1st. The latest iteration of the stealth-enticing, sniper-dominated series will place players in the unforgiving environment of North Africa to combat Germany's Afrika Korps. The game will include levels three times larger than those in Sniper Elite V2, a more advanced human x-ray kill cam, a kill cam for vehicles, and two-player co-op for the campaign and other game modes.

In addition to the release date announcement, details on the preorder bonus have also been revealed. For preordering, players will receive the "Hunt the Grey Wolf" mission, which will give the players the task of hunting down Hitler, and determining which is the real one and which one is the double. This bonus mission is available via GameStop.

Some say Hitler shot himself in a bunker in Berlin in 1945. Others believe he fell to a sniper bullet two years earlier during a secret trip to North Africa. Or was it his double? Decide for yourself when you get your hands on Sniper Elite 3’s pre-order bonus “Hunt The Grey Wolf.”

Preorder now and get your chance to infiltrate the ancient streets and crumbling rooftops of the German-held town of Tobruk using stealth and distraction. Featuring an expansive open environment, and randomized target identities, journals and locations, no two playthroughs will be the same. The question is – can you tell fact from fiction, the real target from the double?
Sniper Elite 3 will retail for $49.99 (or regional equivalent) on the Xbox One, and $39.99 (or regional equivalent) on the Xbox 360.
