'Sniper Elite 4' (ALL) Rolls Out First Patch, Premium Content Packs

by Rainier on Feb. 27, 2017 @ 10:45 a.m. PST

Set in the immediate aftermath of its predecessor, Sniper Elite 4 continues the series’ World War Two heritage by transporting players to the beautiful and diverse environments of Italy in 1943.

Covert agent and elite marksman Karl Fairburne must fight alongside the brave men and women of the Italian Resistance to help free their country from the yoke of Fascism, and defeat a terrifying new threat with the potential to halt the Allied fightback in Europe before it’s even begun.

If his mission fails, there will be no Operation Overlord, no D-Day landings, and no Victory in Europe.

From sun-drenched Mediterranean coastal towns to colossal Nazi megastructures, daunting forests and giddying mountain monasteries inspired by Monte Cassino, Sniper Elite 4 will offer breathless emergent stealth action and unrivalled sniping freedom across maps many times the size of those seen in Sniper Elite 3.

Our first PC patch launches today. We’ll continue to monitor your feedback and further improve the game, including dedicated patches for consoles in the near future.

New options:

  • A full-screen borderless window option is now supported from the launcher. This is an alpha release and we welcome any feedback in the forums. Thank you to everyone who requested this!
  • “Binaural Simulation” audio settings are now available on the launcher and defaults to “off” rather than being enabled as part of the “Headphones” audio option. This will fix stuttering on a limited number of processors.


  • Fixes to the multiplayer browser – the filter tick-boxes should now be fully functional and the list of games sorted in a more sensible order.
  • Dedicated servers should no longer report one of the players as the host.
  • Fixes for various crashes and disconnections.
  • Various localisation fixes.

  • Fixes for various crashes

Tailored for covert warfare, two new packs are available for purchase today on the Xbox Store, PlayStation Store and Steam.

If you own the Sniper Elite 4 Deluxe Edition or Season Pass ($34.99 / €34.99 / £29.99), both will unlock automatically!

  • Covert Heroes Character Pack: Expand your force with three formidable new characters. Play as the elite Russian sniper Roza Petrovna of the Red Army 25th Rifle Division, the highly-trained British Commando or the ghillie-clad trooper!
  • Silent Warfare Weapons Pack: Equip your campaign, multiplayer or co-op loadouts for total stealth with the silenced Carbine and HDM semi-automatic pistol and then mop up any survivors with the powerful new Grease Gun
  • Allied Forces Rifle Pack: Take the fight to the Fascists with these Allied weapons – M1 Garand, M1 Carbine and Ross Mark 3. For Use In All Modes!

The Sniper Elite 4 Season Pass will give players access to ALL 12 of the game's post-launch content packs, including 4 full campaign missions for 1-2 players!

The Season Pass includes the following:

    • Target: Führer campaign mission – Infiltrate a secret Mediterranean U-boat facility and use wits and creativity to take out the target in over 30 ways.
    • Camouflage Rifle Skin Pack – Blend into the lush environments of wartime Italy with highly detailed skins for all seven of the game’s starting rifles, for use in any mode.
    • A completely new three-chapter campaign, separate from the main storyline, which features massive, diverse new environments that eventually lead Karl out of Italy for a thrilling finale…
    • Each expansion pack will be released alongside a campaign mission, and they’ll each include 3 new weapons, 8 new weapon skins and 2 new characters. 
    • Three further weapon packs – including silenced weapons, famous wartime Allied rifles, and equipment for taking on foes at close quarters...
    • Three new characters for use in both co-op and multiplayer.

All new multiplayer maps and modes released after launch will be FREE for the whole community. 

Running in native 1080p on both PS4 and Xbox One, Sniper Elite 4 is the first game in the series built without the constraints of older hardware and aims to deliver the definitive World War Two shooter for a generation. Sniper Elite 4 features dedicated campaign, co-op and adversarial multiplayer modes.
