New Details On Sniper EliteUK-based Rebellion has today released new information on Sniper Elite, a stealth-based action title that has been in hiding since its development was announced over a year ago. Set in 1945 Berlin, the games storyline, which has changed a little since the game was announced, sees the Soviet secret service attempting to obtain Germanys secret plans for an atom bomb. Players will assume the role of an elite German sniper recruited by the American OSS (which later became the CIA) to prevent the Russians from achieving their goal. Rebellion is eager to point out that Sniper Elite will not be a garden variety shooter, but will in fact be a highly detailed sniping simulation. To succeed in the game, players will need to be aware of gravity effects, wind movements, their own posture and heart rate, empty-lung firing techniques, and location-specific damage to enemies. Players will have complete freedom to explore the games environments, and will need to employ various stealth techniques such as hugging walls and crawling underneath vehicles to avoid being spotted. Rebellions hope is that Sniper Elite will be released towards the end of this year, although no specific release dates have been announced at this time. Well bring you more information on Sniper Elite as soon as it becomes available.
