Sniper Elite 3 Heads to Switch With Ultimate Edition
I’ll admit the first thing that came to mind when they announced Sniper Elite 3 would be coming to the Switch was if it could handle it. Wide-open detailed terrains are not really what I’d call the machine’s forte, after all.
That all vanished with the first gameplay footage, however. There are some concessions to the weaker hardware here and there, but that appears to all have been aimed at keeping performance where it needed to be for the long-range sniping that’s so essential to the gameplay.
It will be very interesting to see how this holds up compared to the experience on the other consoles, as so far it appears to compete very well.
Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition arrives on Switch in October.
Here’s the full press release:
