Sniper Elite V2 goes free on Steam for a day

Sniper Elite V2, the World War II shooter from Rebellion Developments, is available free on Steam for the next 24 hours, the studio announced today.

Any Steam user who downloads a copy of the Windows PC title by 1 p.m. EDT tomorrow, June 5, will have it forever. Rebellion originally launched Sniper Elite V2 in the spring of 2012 on PC, PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360, and in May 2013 on Wii U.

"V2's one of Rebellion's most successful ever games, but it's been out for over two years now. We think the loyal Sniper Elite community will welcome some fresh blood on the multiplayer servers, while new players will get to experience the things that make the series unique, and sharpen their skills before the release of Sniper Elite 3," said Jason Kingsley, co-founder and creative director at Rebellion, in a press release.

Sniper Elite 3 is set to be released June 27 on Windows PC, and July 1 on PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One. For more, check out our recent preview of the shooter's multiplayer component.
