Originally expected at the end of this year, Sniper Elite 4 will instead arrive in early 2017.

Sniper Elite 4 delayed to February 2017
Rebellion said it decided to move the World War 2 shooter into 2017 because its PlayStation VR title Battlezone would be arriving in the same quarter.

“Battlezone will release in October as a launch title alongside PlayStation VR,” said rebellion. “That gave us a tough decision to make.

“Ultimately, we’re a relatively small independent studio, and releasing two major titles in the same quarter didn’t seem like a sensible thing to do.”

The additional months also have the added benefit of giving the team extra time to add an “extra bit of attention” before release.

Sniper Elite 4 is a direct sequel to Sniper Elite 3, and continues the story of marksman Karl Fairburne. He’s in Italy this time out, fighting alongside the Italian Resistance.

PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One users can pick the shooter up on February 14, 2017.

Games could see performance improvements on the Xbox One S.

Xbox One S is more powerful than the regular Xbox One
During its E3 2016 show yesterday, Microsoft revealed the slim Xbox One, model S, to the world. The new console is 40 percent smaller than the original Xbox One, and has an internal power supply.

Although Microsoft confirmed the console supports 4K media playback and boasts a UHD Blu-ray player, no one expected it to actually play regular Xbox One games better. Head of The Coalition, Rod Fergusson, Gears of War 4 developers toldPolygon the game will actually benefit from some of the increased power.

This additional power, according to Fergusson, comes in the form of increased GPU and CPU “raw” power.

Gears of War 4 dynamically scales the resolution in both single-player and multiplayer, to maintain the frame-rate targets for each. According to Fergusson, the team was able to utilise the extra power in the Xbox One S to reduce the frequency of frame-rate and resolution penalties in demanding spots.

The Xbox One S’ high dynamic range (HDR) also helps with some visuals improvements like surface detail on metal and armour, thanks to the wider colour range.

Microsoft did not mention the One S having more power, even if it’s not a huge increase in the grand scheme of things. It is, however, an interesting fact consumers should be aware of.

Gears of War 4 is out October 11 on Xbox One and Windows 10 PCs.

It’s due for release holiday 2017.
