In case you like playing the Sniper Elite series for its story about a lone gunman taking down the entire Third Reich, you’ll be happy to learn Rebellion has release a story trailer for Sniper Elite 4.

The video explains what Karl Fairburne is doing in 1943 Italy. After the events of Sniper Elite 3, Allied Forces are now ready to invade mainland Italy, and they need Karl’s sniping expertise to clear the way and “fan the flames of resistance”. We all know bullets make the best fans.

This trailer is actually the first in a series of story trailers, so expect the next ones to be lighter on exposition. Maybe they’ll delve a little deeper into the game’s plot, and what Karl will actually be doing in his trip to scenic Italy and Sicily.

Sniper Elite 4 will be released February 14, on PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
