Yay – It’s World War II again, oh how I miss games made in that era. Just shows that you cannot get too much of a good thing. This time it is a little bit different though as you wont be running around lobbing grenades everywhere. Nope, this time we are to be the wind you cannot hear and the movement you cannot see. Sniper Elite V2 from Rebellion and 505 Games is the remake of the 2005 release of Sniper Elite. Rebellion (who own 2000AD – Zarjaz!) are one of my favourite developers and have a good history when it comes to FPS games so you can be sure this will be a quality made title.
To make this even better our buddies over at GameStop are doing a great pre-order deal. If you get your name down for a copy before May 4th you will gain access to one free mission and two sweet weapons, the Soviet semi-automatic battle rifle SVT-40 and the standard German service rifle Kar 98 – sweet! What is this mission you ask? Only the most important ones that the world has ever know – To give the tyrant Hitler a second hole in the head! Check it -
You have one chance to change history – intel has been received that Hitler is returning from Berchtesgaden to Berlin via his personal train. Players must intercept the train as it waits at the station and take down the Fuhrer as he hastily makes way for the station on foot. There is only a single opportunity for players to do what so many wish had been done – take out the leader of the Third Reich. One chance. One bullet. Make it count!
Sometimes it is nice to just sit in a cool, shaded spot and pick of baddies through a zoomed scope, you can pack a tea flask and some sandwiches and just chill as you shoot peoples heads off, it is really rather relaxing… oh, that’s called ‘camping’ isn’t it? Well we all love a bit of that, even if we wont admit it publicly. All you players out there that are to busy sprinting around and knifing each other in the back, I say to you – Chill baby! Let your Bullets do the walking! Sniper Elite V2 looks to be a great sniper experience packed with stealthy play, tactical choices and simulated weaponry not to mention a heap of Nazi’s to shoot. Perfect for all you gun heads out there. For a full rundown of all the games great bits such as co-op and kill cam features you can check it out here at the offical website.You can also hook up on FaceBook and Twitter if you are a hardcore Sniper Dude. You can get your greedy mitts on Sniper Elite V2 on the Xbox 360 and PS3 come May 4th. For now have a look at whats on offer in the trailer below. Its an oldie but a goodie – Boom!
