Get Behind the Scope with First Sniper Elite V2 Trailer

505 Games and Rebellion have released a brand new trailer for their upcoming game, Sniper Elite V2. The trailer highlights a ‘kill cam’, which does close ups on a good kill and displays just how much damage the bullet can be. The cam follows the path of the bullet to its target and then goes X-ray slow motion when it makes impact with its target.

See below just how brutal the world of a sniper can be with this teaser trailer.

Rebellion CEO Jason Kingsley had the following to say about the trailer and game:

We’re really excited by the new teaser trailer for Sniper Elite V2. It gives a sneak peek at the kind of action you can expect from the game, as well as the chance to see what makes it so unique.

This is no ‘run and gun’ game and you have to be strategic, take your time and think problems through rather than go in all guns blazing – exactly what made the original Sniper Elite such a great game.

Rebellion CTO Chris Kingsley added the following:

The kill cam is both a big part of Sniper Elite’s gameplay and a major technical challenge – recreating in exacting detail the effect of a bullet on the human body.

This is just a glimpse for now, but we know fans of the original Sniper Elite will be thrilled to see we’ve taken what made Sniper Elite such a hit and built on it.

Sniper Elite V2 is set for a 2012 release on the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC.
