You'll be able to shoot undead Nazis in their putrefying genitals when Sniper Elite's Zombie Army Trilogy arrives on March 6, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC. It packs in two previous editions of the series with a third new take on the Sniper Elite spinoff.

Rebellion Entertainment announced the launch date today, touting the 8 playable characters, new enemies, 15 "gut-wrenching" missions, the series' iconic slo-mo X-ray kill-cam, and a demonic Fuhrer.

The trilogy's campaign is playable both solo and cooperatively, and a Horde mode will support up to four players as well.

The bundle comprises Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army and Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army 2, both released in 2013 following the cult-hit success of Sniper Elite V2. The third entry will bring four female characters and more than 25 different weapons to the series, alongside lantern-jawed protagonist Karl Fairburne, the hero of the main game. The trilogy will also add new content to the first two games
