Sniper Elite 3 – Anatomy of a kill-cam dev diary shows exactly what you think it does

Having spent plenty of time behind the glass myself, I’m often overly critical of anything related to sniping.  Call it professional courtesy.   Today, the team at Rebellion have released a developer diary for their Q2-slated title Sniper Elite 3 that dissects some of the improvements they are bringing to this new iteration of the series.   If you dig those long distance “no way that hit!” shots,  you’ll enjoy this.  Here’s a bit about this installment:

The latest chapter in the award winning series, Sniper Elite 3 takes players to the unforgiving yet exotic terrain of WW2’s North Africa conflict in a battle against a deadly new foe.

Equipped with Tiger tanks and the latest weaponry, Germany’s infamous Afrika Korps have the Allies outnumbered and outgunned. Worse still, intelligence indicates the Nazis are developing a super weapon in Africa that could destroy all hopes of victory not just in Africa, but in the whole war.

It must end here. You are the turning point. Because one bullet can change history…

Sniper Elite 3 is heading to PS4, Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS3 and PC in Q2 of 2014.
