Rebellion’s Sniper Elite V2 has players sniping enemies in that old favourite stomping ground of first-person shooters, World War 2, and much like any game that is trying to build hype for itself, it’s got a few pre-order bonuses locked and loaded for early adopters.
But every FPS game on the market has pre-order bonuses such as extra weapons and character skins, so what’s a game like Sniper V2, with it’s smaller budget and advertising abilities supposed to offer gamers as an incentive in order to buy their game early?
A chance to kill Adolf Hitler of course.
Pre-ordering Sniper V2 before May will net you a special mission, as publisher 505 games describes;
Intel has been received that Hitler is returning from Berchtesgaden to Berlin via his personal train. Players must intercept the train as it waits at the station and take down the Fuhrer as he hastily makes way for the station on foot. There is only one opportunity to snipe Hitler and do what so many wish had been done – make it count.
We’ve contacted the local distributor, Apex Interactive, and have indeed confirmed that we’ll get to kill Hitler too. A chance to kill Hitler? This game is going to sell millions of copies in Israel.
