Most of the staff here in Enthusiast Towers are looking forward to Astral Chain, The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening, Luigi’s Mansion 3, and Pokémon Sword and Shield this year. As much as I’m interested in those games, I’m really looking forward to playing GRID: Autosport and Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition. I love these games and the chance to play them on the go is something I’m really excited about. While we still await a release date for GRID we now know when Rebellion‘s award-winning tactical shooter will be coming out. Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition will launch for Switch on 1st October.
In my opinion, Sniper Elite 3 is the best in the franchise. The story is fantastic and the team at Rebellion had really refined their sniping system by this point. This third entry in the series takes in the African campaign of World War II. While this helps to shed light on a conflict often unexplored in popular culture, it also helps to add more colour to the visuals. This is something Sniper Elite V2 Remastered struggled with due to all the bombed-out buildings of its European setting. The Ultimate Edition which will be launching on Switch includes all of the DLC for the game which includes the brilliant 3-part Save Churchill expansion as well as an additional 18 weapons.
