Sniper Elite 4 Vid Bursts Heart Shoulders Knees & Guts

Bloody business

Heart shoulders knees and guts
(Knees and guts)
Heart shoulders knees and guts
And jaw and brain and liver and nose
Heart shoulders knees and guts
(Knees and guts)

That's a handy song to help you remember which bodybits get shot, stabbed, punched, kneed, ruptured, shattered, and exploded in slow-motion internal views in the first 'gameplay' trailer for Sniper Elite 4 [official site].

That's what it looks like to me, at least (I'm no Frankenstein's Doctor). Yes, Sniper Elite 4 will return with more World War 2 sniping antics, not to mention plenty of gut-punching and stabbing. It's a stealth-ish third-person shooter series, see, letting players sneak through missions like a spooky murderghost or explode everything. My point is: guts.

This time the game's off to Italy in 1943, and supposedly packing larger levels than before. Along with the usual campaign missions, it will have cooperative and competitive multiplayer modes.

Made by Rebellion, Sniper Elite 4 is due on February 14, 2017, priced at £39.99/59,99€/$59.99. If you want to shoot every face, hey, Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 is due a few weeks before then too. Anyway, I promised you a video:
