The trailer also shows an extra mission available to those who pre-order. Known as ‘Target Fuhrer,’ this scenario has you taking out the one and only Adolf Hitler.

Tasked with sneaking through a heavily guarded German U-boat, you’ll choose between sneaking through countless Nazi forces or storming in guns blazing.

We scored Sniper Elite 3 a 7/10 in our review, calling it a “rough around the edges shooter with an enthralling open world.”

Sniper Elite 4 is coming to PS4, Xbox One and PC on February 14, 2017. Happy Valentines Day!
