Sniper Elite's Karl Fairburne seems to be getting awfully close-range, for a trained sniper.
"One man is utterly alone amidst the chaos of war," Rebellion teased back in January, and now we know why: Hitler's kicked off Plan Z, and the world's gone to hell in a Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army handbasket. For a trained sniper, you seem to be expected to get awfully close to the opposition - at least, according to the trailer - but perhaps there's some tactical necessity involved.
Says Rebellion's Jason Kingsley, "we've self-published Nazi Zombie Army as a stand-alone title, which has been enormously satisfying, and the response from both Sniper Elite fans and other gamers alike is fantastic." This one's potentially co-op, with you and three friends getting together one foggy evening and blasting the minions of Hell right back to the Inferno. Otherwise you can tackle its challenges solo, if you think you have what it takes to take on Nazi zombies alone, as Karl Fairburne, super sniper hero.
It's going to be available on Steam very soon, and there are special discounts available for those who buy within the next 4 hours - as of time of writing - but otherwise this'll set you back about $15. You can also buy what's called a 4-pack, which is 4 copies of the same game for about $50; you just have 3 to give away to friends, which will save a couple bucks if you know three like-minded souls who'd be interested in sharing the cost.
