A playable demo of Sniper Elite V2 is now available via PlayStation Network and Xbox LIVE, giving you the chance to try out this third person tactical WWII shooter sequel developed by Rebellion and due to launch on May 1st (North America) and May 4th (Europe), for Xbox 360 and PS3. The game weaves an explosive story of an undercover American OSS agent, stalking enemy prey across key historical locations from the Battle of Berlin in a mission to unravel the mysteries and dangers of the German V-2 rocket programme.
The downloadable demo showcases a specially prepared sequence from one of the game’s early missions set against the crumbling streets of the town of Schöneberg. Playing as agent Karl Fairburne, players must stealthily traverse the shattered streets environment on a mission to lay a booby-trap for an unsuspecting armoured enemy convoy. Travelling on board is a sinister expert in rocket engine technology, and critical documents that will lead Fairburne to a secret V2 production facility.
The PC demo will be available to download later this month.
