Independent UK developer Rebellion
is delighted to announce that the award-winning
Sniper Elite V2
is now available to buy from the PSN
store in the United States, Canada, Mexico, Argentina and
Sony Entertainment store link (US):
Sniper Elite V2 originally launched on PC, Xbox 360 and
Playstation 3 in 2012, but since then the series has gone from
strength-to-strength with impressive sales, award nominations, a
release on Wii U and even a cult spin off -
Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army. The studio also recently
Sniper Elite 3 which is already well into development for
current and next-generation consoles, as well as PC.
While Rebellion worked closely with publisher 505 Games on the
retail console releases of
Sniper Elite V2, they took advantage of self-publishing on
the Playstation Network to allow console gamers to buy the game
digitally on Sony’s platform - something that could be
particularly crucial in some countries where it might be hard to
find a retail edition of the game.
Sharp-eyed gamers will notice that the game arrived on PSN in
the Americas a few months later than in Europe, a fact that the
studio puts down to the minor teething problems of being recognised
as a new publisher on the platform.
Reviewers who’ve yet to play the game can request review
codes by emailing the studio at the details below.
