You may not realise that Sniper Elite 4 is indeed an indie title, but it is, although that’s not to stop Rebellion from producing something of the very highest quality. Have they succeeded with the latest in the Sniper Elite series? Well, you can now find out for yourself.
Whilst our full review is just around the corner, there is nothing to stop you from purchasing Sniper Elite 4 right now on Xbox One, PS4 and PC. Now, should you be gaming on the former of those (and we’re guessing that if you’re here then you probably are), then the Xbox Games Store is able to sort you out with a download or two.
The question is though, which edition do you get acquainted with Karl Fairburne in? The standard for £49.99, or the Digital Deluxe Edition, containing the Season Pass, a skin pack and the Target Führer add-on for £74.99? We reckon the latter is the best port of call should you be looking to get fully ingrained in the Sniper way of life, but obviously the final call is with you.
