Plus, five stupid things you can do, but probably shouldn’t.

Since Sniper Elite 4 was announced early last year, I’ve had several opportunities to go hands on with the game. Just before the Christmas break, however, I was invited along to developer Rebellion’s studios for my most extensive play session yet.
In the first video you’ll be able to watch my valiant attempt at completing Sniper Elite 4′s first level, San Celini. It’s a mid-sized sandbox that offers multiple routes and plenty of vantage points for some impressive long-range sniper kills.
It all starts off pretty well and I manage to demonstrate a couple of new additions to the series, including silenced ammo for your rifle, which allows you to take out a few targets without having to worry about using environmental sounds to mask your shots.
However, as with most things I do, chaos was close at hand and, as time for my hands on started running out, the pressure to rush through increased, resulting in a panicked firefight inside a swanky Italian villa. Hardly the stealthiest of approaches, but a good chance to show off some grenade and assault rifle kills.
