UK developer Rebellion has made World War 2 first-person shooter Sniper Elite V2 free to download from Steam until 6pm UK time tonight.
The Wii U version of shooter Sniper Elite V2 does not include some of the features on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 version - and customers aren't happy.
As expected, 505 Games has made Sniper Elite V2 on Wii U official.
Sniper Elite V2 will release on Wii U later this year, according to various shops.
Update: Rebellion, the tease, has ended speculation and told me this new game relates "definitively" to Sniper Elite.
Sniper Elite V2 leads the UK's all-formats chart for the second week running.
6/10 shooter Sniper Elite V2 has ricocheted to the top of the UK all-format charts.
Sniper Elite knows its limits, by which I mean its audience. It's not looking to hook the historical re-enactment crowd with a pedantic World War 2 simulation. Nor is it hoping to seduce connoisseurs of shooter fare with inventive, rarefied mechanics or an elaborate arsenal. Worthy plot and character development are a distant hope. What Sniper Elite V2 offers is a third-person duck shoot in which the ducks are Nazis with explodable testicles.
Set in and around the Battle of Berlin, its largely linear levels suggest stealth is possible, but nearly always fall back to the more reliable redoubt of mass murder, letting you plug brainpans and ballsacks as the beleaguered Wehrmacht smashes itself against your defensible position.
Nearly every killing shot in the game cuts to a slow-motion bullet camera, which peels away your victim's outer layers at the point of impact, revealing a cutaway rendering of bones and viscera which shatter and rip and pop as a half-inch of steel burrows through. Eyes are unseated as their sockets are sundered, teeth spiral out of a blasted jaw and, though it's tricky to land the shot, gonads burst into a gluey-looking red spray. That's really what people are here for, and the game delivers again and again and again, all other priorities rescinded. You can't accuse Rebellion of a lack of focus.
Mass Effect 3's free multiplayer DLC pack Resurgance will be released on the EU PlayStation Store today.
UK developer Rebellion desperately wants to make Sniper Elite 3.
Boom, wait for it, wait, headshot!
It's been called "distasteful", "disgusting" and "bad taste", and, from another point of view, potentially "one of the most satisfying moments in gaming history!" But for its creators it's "chilling" and asks "difficult questions" of the player.
Pre-order Sniper Elite V2 and you will recieve an extra special mission, publisher 505 Games has announced.
Long-range shooter fires out the headshots.
Though widely considered tired and played-out, the World War II sub-genre is ripe for a comeback, so says Alien vs Predator developer Rebellion.
Rebellion's inglorious long-range shooter.
Nazis get it in the neck.
COD beater? It's a long shot.
505 Games and British developer Rebellion have announced Sniper Elite V2, due for release next year.
It's a sequel to the well received Sniper Elite of 2005, plunging once more into the patient boots of a secret agent sniper during World War II.
Actual details on Sniper Elite V2 are scarce. Platforms mentioned are "the current generation of consoles"; there's nothing said about PC.
