When taking aim for the perfect shot, every frame counts. A single dip could be the difference between a Nazi omelette or your internment in a Jerry prison camp. My roundabout point being that AMD owners should probably snap up the Radeon Soft Crimson ReLive 17.2.1 driver before they begin playing Sniper Elite 4.
The clever folks at Rebellion have built Sniper Elite 4 on their very own game engine. After all, if you want something done right, you do it yourself. As we saw in our Sniper Elite 4 benchmarks earlier, Rebellion has very much done it right. But what about if you're still struggling for performance in Sniper Elite 4? Here's every graphics setting in Sniper Elite 4 PC benchmarked and tested for the Frames Per Second performance hit.
Some games have the innate knack of drawing out the dirtiest of laughs from me, and Sniper Elite 4 is just one such game. I could be heard audibly guffawing as I waited for a truck driver to open his door, pinging off a 400 yard shot which went through his eyeball, out the other side and vented the passenger's spleen. It's the sort of thing which would definitely get Daily Mail readers in a fluster as they worry yet again about demonizing violent videogames. Such qualms were soon at the back of my mind as I scoped out my next target. So yes, I've been playing Sniper Elite 4 with the MSI Radeon R9 380 2GB. Here's precisely how it performs in Rebellion's latest scope-fest.
I've had a really tough morning, let me tell you. Sniper Elite 4 arrived so I had to take one for the team and get Nazi hunting. X-Ray kills never get old let me tell you, and from my brief stint with Sniper Elite 4 it looks as if Rebellion has done it again. Anyway, back to business. Sniper Elite 4 runs on Rebellion's in-house game engine so there really is nothing else quite like it out there. It's designed for huge draw distances so you can zero in those epic sniper shots. Naturally enough you're going to want it to look its finest in order to really benefit. Here's all of Sniper Elite 4's PC graphics options you can tweak, as well as a heap of Low vs Ultra graphics comparison sliders.
Love is the air, everywhere I look around. Sniped in the balls, do do do dodo do doooo. Ignore me, I’ve just been hurriedly cancelling my Valentine’s Day plans in preparation to bring the Axis scum to a swift and brutal end. You see the Sniper Elite 4 launch trailer has arrived to let us know timing is everything. You know, like Rebellion giving us a horrifically violent wargame on the day we’re supposed to be on our best behaviour.
We’re less than two weeks away from Sniper Elite 4’s launch and Rebellion has a made a last minute announcement. Sniper Elite 4 will support DirectX 12 from day one in addition to DX11, as well as benefit from the additional firepower on offer in Sony’s PlayStation 4 Pro.
Now that the holiday rush is basically in the rear view mirror, it’s already getting time to turn our attention to the big hitters arriving in the new year. Sniper Elite 4 is one of the first to drop, zeroing in on February and ready to bring the gift of gonad-busting, x-ray slow motion sniper shots. Naturally enough you wouldn’t just rupture the spleen of any old person. You’d need a bit of provocation. Fortunately we’ve got the first story trailer for Sniper Elite 4, reminding us just why Karl Fairburne has to be such an unrelenting psychopath.
February 14th, 2017. Valentine's Day to lots of doe-eyed couples. Or the day on which Sniper Elite 4 fans can fire a bullet and watch it, in extreme slow-motion, fly more than a kilometre to its Nazi target, imploding several organs in truly disgusting, pseudo X-ray fashion. I think you know which side of the fence you lie on. Before you start training your sights on the Kommandant though, check out the official Sniper Elite 4 system requirements and make sure you're ready. 
Confirming the rumours we reported on last month, Rebellion has announced Sniper Elite 4 will be headed to PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One later this year. Let’s hope our sniper pal has a stronger element of surprise or the Nazis will have him for breakfast.
The LinkedIn profile of an employee at ADIA Entertainment, a Chinese digital arts company, has revealed that Sniper Elite 4 is currently in development from the folks at Rebellion. We're coming up to two years since the last Sniper Elite game, so if Rebellion stick true to form then the sequel can’t be too far off.
