Incoming Intelligence from Supreme Headquarters Allied Expeditionary Force (SHAEF) Eyes only for Agent K. Fairburne
Milton Keynes, UK — Great work on clearing that fuel depot up at Neudorf, Agent Fairburne, really threw a spanner in the works for their re-enforcement plans.

But enough about former glories; there’s something of a counter attack coming on the western front; led by a General Rodebrecht. Now, he’s a bit of a rising star in the German high command and some believe he may be able to turn the tide which frankly we can’t have, not now we’re making such good headway pushing across France towards Berlin. SHAEF see this man as a significant threat and want him eliminated. His service book needs to be retrieved as proof that the mission was completed.

We’re not sure exactly where you’ll find Rodebrect but the latest intel puts him somewhere in the countryside surrounding the village of St Pierre so you’re going to have to plan this one out yourself and track him down. We’ve got a couple of new weapons for you to try out on this one — the British have sent over a few of their Lee Enfield No 3 rifles which you should find particularly handy with their high velocity 303 rounds and you’ll also find our brand new M1D Garand, a semi-automatic rifle which General Patton has called "the greatest battle implement ever devised". 

Take on the challenge of the all new St. Pierre DLC for 505 Games Sniper Elite V2 available from today for Xbox LIVE® for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®Network, priced at 400 Microsoft points / £3.99 / $4.99.

Sniper Elite V2 is rated rated PEGI 16 / 15 BBFC.
Experience the sniping genre's elite with better interactivity than ever before

Milton Keynes, UK — 505 Games, a global publisher of video games, and independent game developer Rebellion today announced that they will be bringing smash hit Sniper Elite V2 to Nintendo’s new Wii U™ console with all new controls and a level of interactivity only possible with the Wii U™ GamePad touch screen.

Players will enjoy the same thrilling, visceral experience as they guide American OSS agent Karl Fairburne around historical locations throughout Berlin and attempt to unravel the mysteries and dangers of the German V-2 rocket program but now with even greater tactical depth and flexibility thanks to brand new functionality through the GamePad – tag enemies and booby-traps, track enemy locations and activity, even monitor the blast radius of planted explosives – all with a glance at the touch screen and without leaving the battlefield for even a second.

Jason Kingsley, CEO of Rebellion said “Sniper Elite is just the kind of mature game that is perfect for the different mechanics of the Wii U. It’s been a challenge to get it right, but thanks to our team and the fantastic support of our partners at 505 Games we believe we’ve brought the unique gameplay to a whole new platform.”

Sniper Elite V2 places an emphasis on learning to handle the anticipation and pressure of the hunt and using skill, patience and cunning in order to achieve mission goals. Featuring detailed sniping simulation with advanced ballistics, gamers must use their environments and take into account gravity, wind, aim stability and more.  The celebrated “kill cam” from Sniper Elite makes its return and is more gratifying than ever - skilful shots are rewarded with a slow-motion sequence of the bullet running its full trajectory before the target is rendered in graphic x-ray detail, showing the bullet entering the body and causing lethal damage.

Developed by Rebellion, Sniper Elite V2 will be releasing for the Nintendo Wii U™ system in Spring 2013 and was previously available on the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and is rated 15 by the BBFC.  The Windows PC version is available for download at
