Never played the series, but I think it's home is on PC so that is probably where it sold best.

Very fun game! Also a recommendation for co op :)

Is the co op for campaign or is there some random co op mode that's not part of the campaign?

Co-Op is back in a big way with Sniper Elite 4 with three separate co-op modes on display. Three overwatch missions make a return, a feature the series has had since the first game. In these missions one player is the sniper while the other is a spotter, or in Sniper Elite 4ís case, a saboteur. These maps are equally as huge as the campaign missions themselves and really force players to work together to complete all objectives.

The campaign itself in Sniper Elite 4 is playable in two player co-op. Youíll want to crank up the difficulty a bit while doing this, but itís a satisfying way to enjoy the story with a friend. The level design lends itself well to both split up and work together to complete the objectives. Adding in co-op means you can revive a downed pal making things slightly easier. As a bonus, the game provides matchmaking for the co-op campaign making it easy to find a game to play.

Wow sounds like a lot of goodies for coop. Is the coop local or online or both? Thanks for all these details!
