 The gameplay style is not being changed from the original. The reason for this is that the game is a remaster, meaning we want to keep the game as close to the original as possible in terms of gameplay style as that's out intention of our remasters.

There are a bunch of additions and updates to the game, but none of these should affect the style of play.

Hope this helps :)

 The animations from the original haven't been changed. Also since the game is a remaster and we're keeping the play-style as truthful to the original as possible, we've kept the same difficulty modes as the original and have not changed the play-style to be more like that of 4. 

Cheers,

Scott

 Only checkpoints are available, like in the original. 


We also haven't added any swastikas into the game as we're respecting the original content, visually it will just be improved. We don't feel adding swastikas into the game adds any benefit or improves the gameplay. 


Cheers,


Scott

 As this is a remaster, we're being as respectful to the play-style of the original as possible, so no play-style changes have been made, which answers 2, 3 and 4. The only change to multiplayer is the difference in numbers of people who can play now. 

Unfortunately there are no new maps in multiplayer, although there is still a large number of improvements to the game and we have some extra content announcements to come in the future.

 We've kept the difficulties the same as they were, as is the same with most things, to respect the original.

 The maps are remaining the same size, although there may be a few changes to spawn locations to accommodate the numbers, the maps themselves have not been changed.

There is no collectors edition planned so far, if there is any plan for this in the future we'll make an announcement across all channels to let people know.

 As it's a remaster, the gameplay experience wont be changed as it wouldn't be respectful to the original. That means we won't be making any changes to the way it is played, although there are a bunch of things that improve the experience which are mentioned in the FAQ.

We're also holding on to some extra surprises that we'll reveal as we get closer to release, so keep your eyes on our channels for those!

We have no plans for the original Sniper Elite right now, but this doesn't mean it wont be something that happens in the future.
