Wait For The (Bullet) Drop: Sniper Elite V2 Killcam Video


If Sniper Elite V2's Killcam of the Week is a thing now, then I'm all for it. Simple, effective delivery of bullets to the brain over distance has always been my favourite thing in games, even better when we get to join the bullet on their journey, to share the excitement of their life's ambition of making a skull's acquaintance. Rebellion's WW2 sniper sim puts you in the pants of a an OSS agent, hunting his targets through the Battle of Berlin. Historically inaccurate video, below.

I hope the X-Ray effect isn't just an affectation for the videos, but everything we've seen of it shows the innards of the targets leering for the camera in similar garish fashion.

Worth celebrating, that one! Trying to pin down a release date is proving difficult: Rebellion are self-publishing the PC version, but it'll not be out at the same time as the console's August 11th release. Just sometime after.
