It's been some time since Sniper Elite 3 was announced, but Rebellion has been hard at work on it. Well, that and Nazi Zombie Army 2. When SE3 was announced, there wasn't a whole lot to go on other than it'd star Karl Fairburne again and hints that it would take place in Africa. Earlier today the first trailer arrived, and Sniper Elite 3 does indeed take place during the North African part of World War II.
Fairburne finds himself behind enemy lines as he helps the Allies whittle down the German's Tiger tanks. Of course things are never quite that easy, as a new German technology could quickly end all hope for the Allies. However we don't know just what the Germans have in store for us, so this new superweapon could be just about anything. It'll be up to Fairburne to put an end to it, or the world will be a very different place.
Sniper Elite 3 has a larger focus on sandbox gameplay, according to Rebellion, and a much more advanced X-ray kill-cam. Rebellion is introducing the vehicle kill-cam as well, which you can see evidenced in the trailer below. It should make for some truly spectacular results, but sadly we all have to wait until next year to try it out. Sniper Elite 3 arrives in 2014 for the PC, PS4, PS3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360.
