Sniper Elite Nazi Zombie Army - Gameplay Trailer


The game starts off in a village near Berlin where Karl Fairburne, Boris Medvedev, a German Occult researcher presumably Dr. Schwaiger, and a Wehrmacht officer, Herman Wolff, try to find a working vehicle so they can reach Berlin. After fighting through dozens of hordes of zombies they find a truck in front of the village’s church. They head towards a cathedral in Berlin, hoping to find what caused the apocalypse but as they enter the cathedral one of the Occult Generals rises and summons zombies to assault Fairburne’s group. They defeat him and find a secret entrance under the altar, reluctantly they enter into a secret facility in which they find a map which shows something in the Berlin’s library that can help stop the zombies. They head towards the library to find “The Book of Souls” a medieval occult text which destroys all unholy creatures. After finding it, Fairburne places it near a column that summons the zombies .The book destroys it but the other column in the U-Bahn activates. Fairburne’s group ventures to the U-Bahn to find out that 5 skulls are needed to destroy the column. They find and escape through the subway onto a dock. There another Occult General rises and summons dozens of zombies to finally kill Fairburne’s group. While they fight a tugboat approaches telling them to open the canal’s gates so they can escape. They kill the general and get on the ship. The tugboat goes and they hear someone loudly saying “This is only the beginning”. The game ends to be continued in the next DLC/Standalone game, Nazi Zombie Army 2.
