World War 2 is drawing to a close and the Russians and Germans are caught in a furious battle for a devastated Berlin. The cold war starts... As a sniper, recruited by the OSS (former CIA), it is the beginning of a lonely stealth mission in the Russian territory.

Set during the final Soviet advance of Berlin during World War II, Sniper Elite is an action/adventure sniper simulation with 3rd and 1st person interaction, utilising exact rifle and bullet ballistics for what experts say is the most realistic and authentic sniping simulation to date.

"In a market dominated by first person action games, Sniper Elite offers players a different perspective on the shooter genre," said Rob Cooper, Ubisoft's managing director for UK/Ireland/Australia/N-Z and Export. "We are very excited to be bringing this game to the market, and we are delighted to be continuing our partnership with MC2 France and Rebellion."

"We wanted to achieve something new with Sniper Elite. Sniping, by its very nature, is a completely different discipline to normal combat," said Jason Kingsley, CEO and creative director at Rebellion. "We think the unique nature of this game gives it enormous potential and we are pleased to be working with Ubisoft, a major publisher which has the channels to create a successful launch for the game."

"We are pleased to be working with two such respected partners as Ubisoft and Rebellion," said Olivier Grassiano, vice president international sales at MC2 France. "We believe that Sniper Elite will breathe fresh air into the market, and Ubisoft has all the necessary channels at its disposal to make it a successful launch."
