A Snippet Of Sniper Elite V2 Footage


I still don't quite know if Sniper Elite V2 is as open and as stealthy as I'd like it to be. My hope is that it's a bit like Hidden And Dangerous, just sniper-centric, but then I wake up every morning hoping for that game. This new walkthrough video shows one mission, trying to get an angle to snipe Müller, sliced into tiny chunks, so we're left with little glimpses through the sniper's scope rather than a complete picture. I want to know the choices made, the potential for the player to tell his own snipey story, but there's not enough here. There's some talk of recreating the places accurately, so it could be there's enough open space to move around in, but until I know 'ja' or 'nein', I'm remaining snootily interested. I'll have to wait for Brendan's upcoming hands-on to know more.

The scoop on the pre-order DLC made me giggle, though: buy it before it's out and you'll get a mission to snipe Hitler.

So far there's no firm PC release date. It'll just be a few weeks after the console release on August.
