Sniper Elite V2 Sets Its Aim On A 2012 Release Date

Tired of the same ol’ First Person faire?  No?  Well I don’t completely blame you.  But, it’s always nice to see a breath of fresh air blown into the genre.  The return of the Sniper Elite may accomplish this, when it’s released next year on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

The original title, Sniper Elite, earned acclaims for blending stealth and action, and emphasizing gameplay that rewarded patience and cunning over running and jumping around in circles, while spraying your enemy with bullets.

Sniper Elite V2 brings the player back to World War 2 with a newer level of authenticity, not only in your weapon choices, but in those moments where you know that one shot can make the difference between success and failure.

Rebellion, developer for the original Sniper Elite (as well as its upcoming sequel) is no stranger to the genre, and I for one have fond memories of Alien vs Predator and Star Wars: Battlefront.

Look for Sniper Elite V2 in 2012
