Sniper Elite 3 Gameplay Trailer Introduces You To New-Gen X-Ray Kills.

We had a chance to go hands-on with Sniper Elite 3 at PAX East, and the upgrades to mission design and AI have us pretty excited about where the series is headed. In a new trailer, youíll get to see some of what we did.

The Sniper Elite series has become known for its brutal and gruesome x-ray kills, but the franchise is much more than that. Sniper Elite 3 introduces levels that are more open and encourage creativity and player choice.

There are nooks and crannies that allow you to get the jump on patrols and overwatch guards, sniper perches that function a bit like Assassinís Creed viewpoints, and enemy AI that is both clever and more realistic (we covered this last one in our preview). The title arrives just in time for the most patriotic of holidays. You can see more in the video above.

I wasn't feeling it at first but I like the X-Ray kills, may have to pick this up

I thought V2 was very good. Nazi Zombie Army was even better. I can't wait to play this game.

Sniper Elite V2 was pretty okay. It had some serious issues with enemies seeing you through walls or from 4 miles away for no reason. And the environment was scaled weird as well. All the doors, windows and stairs seemed to have been made for a Sasquatch or something because they were about 1.5X the size of what they should be.

The bullet mechanics were really cool but the enemy AI was relentless once they saw you.

I've always wondered about this game honestly. This one looks interesting, but the animation could use some work I'd say. I may check it out.

Yeah, the enemy seeing you was ridiculous. Trying to snipe after being spotted was quite difficult as well. The level design wasn't great either, I was hoping for bigger cities with more options on how to approach the level.

Hopefully V3 is a better game.

I am definitely picking up Sniper Elite 3 when the price drops down to $20.00 USD.
