The game retains and improves on the mechanics of Sniper Elite V2. Players go through large battlefield maps based on the North African conflict. The sniper rifle is the player's primary weapon, though additional side arms including submachine guns and pistols, silenced or not depending on the situation. In addition to hand grenades, the player can deploy them as tripwire booby traps, land mines and dynamite. Binoculars can be used to tag enemies in view, displaying their position and movements. The player-character must hold their breath to properly line up the shot. A red icon appears in the scope, marking the projected point of impact. There are weapon parts spread out all over the game, allowing players to customize their weapons in the predeployment menu; the menu also allows equipment loadouts. Stealth mechanics have been reworked. An eye icon squints or opens to denote the player's level of detection by the enemy. Enemy soldiers will also have a circle meter over their heads to indicate alert status. Players are also forced to relocate periodically to prevent detection with a white ghost image to mark their last known position and the enemy will search a wider area. As in the previous game, loud sounds may be used to mask sniper shots. A points system is instituted for actions such as stealth close-combat or sniper kills, with the points accumulating towards promotion to higher ranks. Players can go around the map to collect special reward items such as collectors' cards and unlock sniper nests. Journal pages also provide further backstory into the events of the game. V2's X-Ray kill cam system is retained as well. Where the previous game only shows the body's internal structure at point of impact, the new game expands to visualize the rest of the cardiovascular system and muscular systems. The player can still target vehicles, but now have a chance to shoot the engines and disable the vehicle.
*HUD assistance is gradually limited on increasing difficulty, ''authentic'' being hardest and without any additional tactical HUD support. *All campaign missions can be played in coop mode. *Maps are fking big enough to provide many different play-through. *Game allows a lot of approaches to emerging situations.

I can confirm this. So far I've played through the prologue and the first mission and it's amazing. Regarding the mechanics it's not that different from Sniper Elite V2 but overall it's a nice and improved game.
Unfortunately I couldn't afford the game so I had to use different sources ( TPB <3 ).

The more and more I play this game, the more I fall in love with it. Its awesome in every game mode and difficulty options can satisfy every type of player. Depending on mood, you can make it arcade shooter or a true sniper simulator. May the forces of evil become confused on the way to your house
