Sniper Elite V2 sneaks onto PSN in the Americas

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 Chile.

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 revealed 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.
