Rebellion has finally announced a release date on their Switch port of Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition. Players can take their battle against The Third Reich portable beginning October 1 for $39.99. Taking place in the theatre of North Africa during 1942, Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition continues the signature sniper gameplay of its predecessors. Originally released on PC, PS3, PS4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One back in 2014, the game was announced for Switch earlier this year.
The Switch version of the game is set to include all previously released DLC out of the box. Exclusive Switch features are also featured including motion aiming and Pro Controller support. Support for local co-op and multiplayer modes is also making its way into the game to share the action with a friend in the same room! Check out the latest trailer for Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition below.
Being a cross-gen game originally, Snipe Elite 3 Ultimate Edition for Switch makes a ton of sense. The game can easily be ported without losing any of its original graphical aspects. Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition is also one of the higher rated entries in the series so it should make a great starting point for Switch players who might have missed out on the franchise up to this point.
