The Smash World Tour & Panda Drama Timeline Games to Frighten You | Cogs In A Machine Ep.42 Evil West Review (Xbox Series X) Turn-Based Fest 2022 Jedi Survivor Release Date Leaked?

News of another next-gen update for a game, however, this one is not one many expected. Rebellion has announced a free upgrade for the new consoles for their game Sniper Elite 4

So what do we get from the upgrade?

This upgrade means that the game supports up to 4K resolution on both PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. Oddly the Twitter announcement doesn’t mention Series S. However we see a “smooth 60FPS and improved load times”

What if I don’t own the game. Is it getting a native release similar to the likes of GreedFall?

It’s an upgrade patch. It also will be available for people who acquired the game via PS Plus two years ago as this was confirmed on Twitter. No mention has been said for the Xbox version on game pass, but searching the game it confirms it is. This is a nice change as the PS Plus editions recently were not eligible such as Final Fantasy VII Remake. On PlayStation 5 they state it’s not a native release for the console, however.

On Xbox, Sniper Elite 4 was one of the first games to take advantage of the FPS boost. This may not be the only title getting an upgrade as Shadow of the Tomb Raider appears on the Xbox store as optimized without any news of what upgraded.

Any plans to upgrade the other Sniper Elite games?

Nothing has been announced yet, and this isn’t the most recent release in the series. It came out in February 2017 and the remaster for v2 came out 2 years later in May 2019. The recent entry in the spin-off series Zombie Army 4 was upgraded but the previous trilogy release has yet to see anything. Though with an expected Sniper Elite 5 coming which was reported by PSU, it would be expected this will be more of a priority for the English-based studio. But this upgrade was fairly unexpected so we can never be certain.
