Fancy Killing Hitler? Pre-Order Sniper Elite V2 and Change History
Written Tuesday, February 28, 2012 By Richard WalkerView author's profile
Should you decide to pre-order Sniper Elite V2 before May 4th, you'll be given a crack at assassinating one of the most evil men to ever rise to power. No, not Rupert Murdoch. In the 'Assassinate the Führer' pre-order mission for Sniper Elite V2, you'll get two new weapons - the Soviet semi-automatic battle rifle SVT-40 and the standard German service rifle Kar 98 - and a chance to change history.
Receiving intel that Hitler is returning from Berchtesgaden to Berlin via his personal train, you'll need to intercept the Führer's arrival and take him down as quickly as possible. You'll apparently only be given a single opportunity to kill Hitler, which means one bullet and just one chance to live out a gory episode of Quantum Leap.
You'd better make that one bullet count then. Sniper Elite V2 will be blasting bullets through brains from April 17th in North America and May 4th in Europe. Check out the Hitler render and Assassinate the Führer' screenshot below.
