Sniper Elite V2
Sniper Elite V2 Demo Shoots Your Face Off Next Week
Written By
View author's profile

Next week will see the release of a lovely new demo for Rebellion's Sniper Elite V2, which plonks you into the boots of crack-shot killer and undercover American OSS agent, Karl Fairburne. The demo will task you with infiltrating and then taking out an important Nazi target.

Set amongst the rubble of Schöneberg, you'll need to evade Nazi troops with a bit of stealthy movement, before taking out a Nazi rocket technology expert who's being escorted in an armoured convoy. In the special mission, you'll ultimately uncover a covert V2 rocket facility once you've dealt with the target.

The Sniper Elite V2 demo will be hitting the Xbox Live Marketplace on April 10th, giving you the opportunity to sample some of the game's much-vaunted killcams, which enable you to see and scrutinise the extent of the internal damage you've cause with your single sniper bullet.

Sniper Elite V2 is out on May 1st in North America and May 4th in Europe. Check out our marvellous video feature with real-life WWII sniper rifles for more.

Thank god, I already have this preodered since it looks awesome, but after recently trying out ghost warrior I began to be very worried about it and have even considered canceling my order, but now I can actually try it out.

Awesome. This game is on my "just might get" list. A demo moves it to the "Nope" or "Oh yea" list. :D

do you seripusly only play games for Cheevos, if so then i feel abit sorry for you.

Before you say oh look at the name of the site bro, I know this is an cheevo site, and I myself have over 100K, but I havent played a game only for cheevos since I hit 20k, I just play alot of games.

IMO cheevos shuld never be the sole reason you buy a game (maybe they can deside a rent). They are something to be knocked out when you are finished with the game and just want to boost your score abit.

I'm just stating my opinion, I never said buy games for achievements and you are the spawn of the devil, I was just voicing my opinion which last time I checked wasnt a crime.

@12 you said to him that you felt sorry for him just because he wanted a game for the achievements but you said you have done it too.

Good news. I'm still really on the fence about this game, it looks awesome but I've been wrong before, so hopefully this demo will help me decide if I should pick this one up or not.

@7 I coudn,t agree more with you but yeah you already said it this is a cheevo site and so there many on here just playing games for that sole reason and then you get tumbs down lol. But well its his oppinion and you have yours but i seen his posts at times and its mostly "i buy game to get all cheevo,s ect" And i must admit he has alot of those realy finished in no time what makes me wonder lol. With this ermm whats its called oh yeah profiling thingy. But back to topics! I already had it on pre-order and its sweet they drop in a demo, what might been a good idea sinds so many lost their trust in 505 and rebelion games.

Why does the character you play as always have to be an american in these games? There were more countries at war with the Germans than just the yanks ffs. Would be nice to play as a Brit or a Frenchman etc for a change. Or at least give us a choice. Little things like this piss me off.

@22 I know that def would be a nice change of pace, but its not just us gamers have this complain realy, i seen an docu on discovery chanel where british veterans where talking about their experinces on D-Day and one said he was annoyed that wherever he looked on books about WWII or about D-Day always american soldiers where on the front cover and never realy british soldiers, he said it always feels we never played a huge part in any military operation at that time, its not so much about me but i feel bad for all my comrades we gave their lives for freedom. I def understand what he means. But we probly have to face it that the US always be prominent in war games and always will be the good ones and the germans or russians the bad onces, even it would be a nice pace of change we actualy could play as a german or russian for a change, i do know there where games in the past on PC that actualy did this.

@24 I,m well aware that this is a site about achievements and thus we all gather here for one or the other reasons to get the most out of games we play. I think the guy only meant that games should be played because of the reasons you like it and enjoy the story, not that much because of achievements or trophies. As much rewarding and fun to earn these achievements are they not should make up your desission if you go get this or that game just because how easy or how hard these are to get, and trust me i read those kinda comments alot. To older gamers like me, we played games because we liked them and there was no reward system when you finished them, if you been lucky the game gave you a few extra,s or unlockables and that was it. I think honest that some are obsessed with getting more gamerscore then their friends have and hey honest 230,000G is fun to have but it not will buy you a pack of milk in the nearby supermarket or give a 40% off when buying a new flatscreen tv ;) All i,m saying is Achievements should be fun but not control your life.

#27 I agreed with you said. I loved achievements yah but also I loved games so much but if crap games it is just achievements for me in my opinion or if poor games with no cheevos I will never buy games there no reasons to buy for me.

But if great or good titles yah I love them and play lots playthroughs and some good MP or coop modes with friends something like that not only cheevos.

Yah I seen your point about it. Achievements never control me.

I got over 50 completed gamerscore games so this not lots because I am more love games and get 1000G if easy achievements or medium as well some XBLA titles completed. I not really care about 1000G or 200G for every games on xbox retail or xbla games though :)

Also I been gaming and gamer for 22 years since first ever played on super mario bros. game for super nintendo. I soon be 27 on May 21st hehehehe
