Rebellion Games, the creators of the 2005 critical success, Sniper Elite
, have revealed a new trailer to tease the sequel to their realistic stealth-action shooter that released back on the original Xbox. The game, as we reported
, was announced back in April. Sniper Elite V2
will take place in World War II, as the first one did, and will focus on solo sniping missions that use realistic weapon ballistics and will emphasize patience over action. Players will need to account for elevation, wind, noise, and other factors to execute the perfect shot.
If the concept sounds familiar, it's because last year, a similar game by City Interactive, Sniper: Ghost Warrior
was released to mixed reviews.
Still, few details of the story have been revealed alongside the trailer, but we'll be sure to scope out any future details as we near the release.
Aim for the head with Sniper Elite V2
sometime in 2012.
