Sniper Elite 3 Gets a Release Date of July 1, 2014; Pre-Order Bonus Announced
Developer Rebellion has announced that Sniper Elite 3 will be releasing in North America on July 1, 2014 for consoles and worldwide on July 27, 2014 for PC and consoles. The console versions are being published by 505 Games, while the PC version is self-published and releasing on Steam. Along with the release date announcement, Rebellion also announced Sniper Elite 3's pre-order bonus, "Hunt the Grey Wolf:"
Hitler, Allied code name "Grey Wolf", and his double have embarked upon a clandestine trip to the Libyan port town of Tobruk in 1942. In order to prepare for this mission, and that crucial final shot, you must infiltrate the ancient streets and crumbling rooftops of the German-held town 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?
The PC version is currently available for pre-order on Rebellion's online store for 20% off, bringing it down to $39.99 instead of its normal $49.99 price. As the PC version requires Steam, you'll obviously get a Steam key when they become available. The console versions can be pre-ordered from GameStop and other major retailers, with a $69.99 Collector's Edition available for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, featuring a "limited edition ammo tin box, dossier, three exclusive ammo and weapon DLC packs, collectible playing cards, sniper shooting range target, dog tag, and bullet-shaped torch pen."
