Sniper Elite v2 is available for free on Steam, but if you want to keep the first-person shooter forever, you need to download it and install it during the next 24 hours.
For the uninitiated, Rebellion Development’s Sniper Elite v2 is a World War II shooter that takes place in the Battle of Berlin in 1945, but the game’s narrative differs from the real conflict. In the game, you assume the role of an American Officer of Strategic Services as he tries to capture scientists who are working in the German V-2 project.
So what’s the catch? Sniper Elite 3, the next entry in the series, is coming out really soon, so the developer released Sniper Elite v2 as a free download as a way of promoting the upcoming release. Fine by me!
It’s worth mentioning that the promotion ends on June 5th at 10AM Pacific/1PM Eastern.
