Sniper Elite V2 Lets You Kill Hitler

You read that right.

Sniper games should almost have their own sub-genre at this point. I've lost track on just how many there are out there but it's obvious that they're quite popular. Players seem to get a rush from scoring those long distance headshots and those moments of dropping a foe before they even know where the sound came from.

Sniper Elite V2 is about to take that to another level entirely. Players who pre-order the game prior to its ship date on May 1 will get two weapons - the Soviet semi-auto battle rifle SVT-40 and the standard German rifle Kar 98. More importantly, the special mission that comes with pre-ordering will allow players to kill Adolf Hitler.

Yes, I'm being serious.

The intel says that Hitler is returning from Berchtesgaden to Berlin on his personal train. Players will have to intercept this "precious cargo" as it waits at the station and take down Hitler as he tries to get away on foot. Are you a bad enough dude to not only take, but make, the shot that changes the world forever?

Well, if popping caps in Nazi Germany dictators' heads floats your boat, be sure to check out Sniper Elite V2. We will have to give 505 Games and Rebellion one thing: they sure know how to build buzz around a game. I hadn't even heard of Sniper Elite V2 until 10 minutes ago and now I suddenly want to go out and pre-order it.
