It is autumn of 1942. Stalingrad is under siege of the Third Reich armies. The Soviet commanders order a counter offensive. In November, Marshall Zukov rallies approximately a million people around Stalingrad together with 1500 tanks, 2500 heavy cannons and three aircraft armies. His plan is to surround and cut off the 6th Army of General Friedrich Paulus and a part of the 4th Panzer Army. This way, the besieging armies will be surrounded themselves.

WW II was a theatre of war for many specialised combat units, working together to ensure an army’s victory. Among them a unique role was played by hidden and deadly marksmen. Their ability to lay motionless waiting for the perfect shot together with their professional equipment allowed them to change the course of the history with one pull of a trigger. The players take on the role of a sharpshooter to eliminate the Nazi general, who came to support the Germans laying siege to Stalingrad. They will have to make their way through areas occupied by the Third Reich to reach their units and help support the Alliance forces during their offensive on the Italian Peninsula to break the resistance of the retreating Wehrmacht forces.
