Sniper Elite V2
Fancy Killing Hitler? Pre-Order Sniper Elite V2 and Change History
Written Tuesday, February 28, 2012 By Richard Walker

Should you decide to pre-order Sniper Elite V2 before May 4th, you'll be given a crack at assassinating one of the most evil men to ever rise to power. No, not Rupert Murdoch. In the 'Assassinate the Führer' pre-order mission for Sniper Elite V2, you'll get two new weapons - the Soviet semi-automatic battle rifle SVT-40 and the standard German service rifle Kar 98 - and a chance to change history.

Receiving intel that Hitler is returning from Berchtesgaden to Berlin via his personal train, you'll need to intercept the Führer's arrival and take him down as quickly as possible. You'll apparently only be given a single opportunity to kill Hitler, which means one bullet and just one chance to live out a gory episode of Quantum Leap.

You'd better make that one bullet count then. Sniper Elite V2 will be blasting bullets through brains from April 17th in North America and May 4th in Europe. Check out the Hitler render and Assassinate the Führer' screenshot below.

I'd pick this game up just so I could kill that son of a bitch! Game looks promising, nonetheless

This DLC is gonna give a lot to talk about when the games comes out. I really think they shouldn't mess with this stuff. Killing Castro in Black Ops gave a lot to talk about and there were lots of ppl who didn't find that nice.

As much as Hitler is an evil, evil, evil, evil, evil man, doing something like this would indeed, just cause too much controversy in the end. And I'm sure they don't want anything like that in the end.

@8 No arguing there with you. I personally think that developers are going a bit too far. I think that it is a cool idea to use historical figures in games, but even if it's this Mother******* Son of a Bitch who murdered thousands of people and jews because of his beliefs, No one should dare make something like this. The end result will be worst than the benefits. I can pretty much see people talking about this for months or years. Maybe the Neo-Nazis will be pissed and cause some other 9/11 accident.

My question to the people: If you could go back in time ONCE, and have ONLY ONE chance to change history, would you do it? Not knowing the consequences and drastic changes that could happen, knowing that calculated risk, would you take the chance?

Who cares if the Neo-Nazis get pissed off?! Their a hate group, the fact that an Organization that calls themself Nazies is allowed to exist is an insult to the people who died in WW2 so I don't think many people give a fuck if the Neo-Nazies are upset about something. I hate to get all political but it's not that big a deal if their upset.


But if you kill Hitler then there's a TIME PARADOX! I think if you were to go back in time and kill Adolf Hitler you wouldn't change time but you'd create an alternate universe where there was never a second world war and you'd become stuck in this alternate history. Considering how many people died there'd be a high risk you parents never exsisted and so you'd be stuck in a universe where you never exsisted.

I think if you effectively mastermind the killing of millions of people, a few of out great-grandfathers among them, then you probably deserve to have your video game effigy assassinated from now until the end of time.

I'm reaaaaaaaaaaaaally thinking about buying this!
Is it any good?
Is it campaign based, or like a simulation type of game?
Is there any online, and what is there to do after you 'complete' it?

I do love me some sniping. ;)

@2 Just remember that, in Call of Duty: Black Ops, the mission in which you have to kill Castro, is where you actually only kill a double. Don't get them mixed up. :)

@#18...really? Mods, are you letting this comment stand? Highly offensive to me, an American. Nobody even said anything about it being "better" to kill Europeans. Someone suggested the game developers are saying it's OK, but I didn't see anyone specifically say it.
Fact is, Hitler was an evil man. It is a "fantasy" mission. By no stretch of the imagination should anyone think this is a turn against the German people. I thought this was a trophy site, not a political forum. I sure didn't think it was an anti-American site. I know he has his opinion, I have one too but I sure wouldn't say it here if it were as offensive...

Strange type of dlc, hehe though would be more fun to shoot of his other ball then kill him, you know just saying.

Also if they wanted to have a real sniper assassination in the game could have you take out JFK, because according to Prince he just couldn't follow orders.

Hmm interesting. I imagine they will have this for download after the game's release, but I doubt there will be any trophies for it due to the nature of it, kinda like how in MW2 there is no trophy for completing "No Russian" and you get an extra .3% for the campaign if you do beat it. Yes I know it's Hitler and whatnot, and he was and still is to this day the evilest man in history, but the fact is he was still a leader of Germany, and while Germany doesn't like to talk about WW2 and whatnot, they could be higly offended by this.

Still, I imagine the worst of these kinds of things for video games will happen when a developer is stupid enough (or has the balls to do it if you have a hatred to America) to put in a mission where you are one of the terrorists that caused 9/11. But then again, that game would 200,000% chance be banned in America, and maybe some parts of Europe.

i think this is DLC is pretty funny, don't mind much about alternate timeline because Inglorious Basterds already did it, and the Simpsons almost did it in the "flying hellfish" episode:P
Also nice that you only have one bullet, add the bulletdrop & crosswinds to that and you get a mission for the history books!

@21 i was thinking the same xD *fingers crossed* for some decent lee harvey oswald DLC at some point!

@15 I guess your pretty much right for my first comment. I don't want to get political too since Im not good at it. I think Im just trying to lay out possibilities. "To make anything happen in the world, you just need the will to keep going and the persistence to survive."

I don't see anything wrong with this, and it's a novel incentive to boost sales. The fact of the matter is, what distinguishes him from any other German in the game, or any person in any game where you have to kill someone? Because he's famous for being quite evil? If you don't see anything wrong with killing an avatar in another game, there isn't really much ground to say killing someone who is infamous for being quite nasty is any different.
