Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition has been treated to a brand new gameplay trailer and news of its official Switch release date. The game will arrive on Nintendo's system both digitally and physically on 1st October.

The game was first revealed for Switch back in March of this year alongside Sniper Elite V2 Remastered. We haven't heard a great deal about 3 Ultimate since then, but we've got an official description and a list of Switch-exclusive features for you to check out below:

Sniper Elite 3 takes you to the heart of World War 2 and the remarkable setting of North Africa in 1942. Stalk the infamous Afrika Korps across oases, canyons and sand-swept cities in a deadly rush to sabotage a Nazi super weapon. Use devastating traps and melee takedowns to take out your targets stealthily. Hone your sharpshooting by mastering gravity, wind and even your heart rate. Watch your bullets rip through organs, bones and even vehicles in the trademark X-Ray Kill Cam.

Exclusive New Features:
- LOCAL CO-OP AND MULTIPLAYER: In addition to online, Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition supports local wireless multiplayer for the first time! Buddy up through the entire campaign in 2-player local co-op, and in the Overwatch and Survival modes. Or face off against your pals in local competitive multiplayer for up to 4 players!
- MOTION CONTROLS: Fine tune your aiming with gyroscope controls and feel bullet impacts from the HD rumble.

If you're already convinced on this one, digital pre-purchase is expected to go live on 17th September and you should find physical pre-order copies popping up across your favourite retailers from today.
