Sniper Elite V2 is the long-awaited sequel to the original Sniper Elite™ from Rebellion, providing a new perspective into the already familiar genre of World War II shooters. You fill the role of Karl Fairburne, an elite US sniper parachuted into Berlin amidst the final German stand of the Second World War. Based off real events from Operation Paperclip, your mission is to track and capture high-profile targets with connection to the development of the terrifying V-2 ballistic missile. This mission will undoubtedly prove a challenge as you will singlehandedly face the might of both the German and Red Army against prevailing odds.
The game greatly stresses on the art of sniping and stealth, vigorously testing the precision and patience of any player. Sniper Elite V2 offers a highly detailed sniping simulation using advanced ballistics, forcing players to account for factors including gravity, wind, velocity, bullet penetration, and aim stability. With diligence, players are rewarded for their hard-earned kills through an X-Ray Kill Cam that gruesomely showcases the hard reality of a bullet entering a body. Witness firsthand the tearing of organs, the splatter of blood, and the shatter of bones as each bullet unremorsefully pierces through human flesh. Sniper Elite V2 frighteningly demonstrates the realism in each and every kill, adding a unique layer of depth that genuinely showcases the brutality of war.
Sniper Elite V2 not only offers extraordinary game mechanics but also combines a stunning visual backdrop with immaculate attention to authenticity. Players will truly experience the Second World War with real locations spread throughout Berlin paired with authentic weapons and vehicles. Being in the right position at the right time is crucial as players will face consequences for missed shots or from being exposed. Regardless, Sniper Elite V2 delivers a whole new level of realism and immersion that will refine future tactical shooters to come.
