A new trailer providing background on the storyline for Sniper Elite 4 has been released.

The video, Italy 1943, is the first in a series of new story trailers for the shooter, and features previously unseen concept art, environments, factions and familiarizes the viewer with information on the Allied invasion of Italy.

Karl Fairburne is the protagonist in the game, and his goal is to help “release the country from the shackles of Fascism,” and help “fan the flames” of resistance. All the while, a rather scary Nazi technology emerges which threatens the whole of Europe.

More videos will be releases in the coming week, and each will offer insights into the story, characters, subplots and locations.

Sniper Elite 4 will release on PC, PS4 and Xbox One February 14.
