Sniper Elite V2
Sniper Elite V2 Video and Screens Hit Like a Bullet

Sniper Elite V2 is a thinking man's shooter, according to the guys at developer Rebellion talking in this new trailer focusing on the game's key features, which mostly revolve around being as stealthy and covert a killer as possible. You'll always have to keep your wits sharp and read the battlefield before firing off that all-important bullet, it seems.

There are numerous options open to you, so carefully considering your tactics is key. Sometimes you might consider winding an enemy with a bullet to attract more targets to pick off, or perhaps you can shoot a soldier's grenade and decimate an entire squad with a single shot.

Hiding, sneaking, leaving hidden traps, reading your surroundings with the aid of tagging on your HUD... It's all in Sniper Elite V2, which will kill run and gun shooter players dead when it launches in April in North America and on May 4th, 2012 in Europe. Check out the trailer below, and ten new screens in the gallery.

@1 The first one was one of the all- time great sniping games...rem this isn't Sniper: Ghost Warrior (although I am excited for that sequel).
So looking forward to it...but I've been burned by Rebellion in recent times, so I'll wait before getting truly excited :P

Hosted by 505, that should be a warning sign.

@2 thanks, gave me what I wanted to hear before I asked the question(sequel to which game)
Didn't ghost warrior sell quite well? It wasn't that highly recommended either was it?

cant wait for this. I played Sniper elite 1 on pc back in 05. its was amazing. im just a little bit worried about the 'cartoony' look of the game. reminds me of brothers in arms. i would like it to look a bit more realistic

Sniper Elite was one of games i played the most on PC back in the days, I also had a copy for it for my xbox,glad to see a return of a great gametitle. The screenshots here are def PC they just look to crisp and sharp for xbox360,but still its awesome they put in the whole bunch of balistics effect like windspeed and direction,also bulletdrag. Its def one of the games i waiting for this year.

Played the first on the PC, although only the demo, the game was amazing and tense.

"Hiding, sneaking, leaving hidden traps..."
At least a real stealth game????
No run and gun like false stealth games those days (splinter cell, hitman absolution...)

sniper elite was a great experience on xbox hope it will be too on 360.

I don't see it happening. To say first one was shit, is overstatement, but to each their own. Admittedly this is looking better, but will it play better at all? Hopefully they will release demo this time around.

For a Rebellion game, this is looking half decent.

Miss WW2 experiences.

Dam, I am hoping so bad for this to be a great game. Looks so awesome, and WW1 and 2 are my favorite eras to play a shooter.

Looks cool. Wouldn't pay $60 for it, though.
