Who wouldn't want to be able to virtually kill Hitler? Well, quite a few people it seems.
Since Rebellion Games announced that its upcoming shooter Sniper Elite V2 will feature “Kill Hitler” DLC, it has been inundated with hate mail from Nazi supporters.
"You’d be surprised how much hate mail we’ve received since we announced the “Kill Hitler” DLC," Rebellion’s Senior Producer Steve Hart told PSU at The Gadget Show this week.
The teaser trailer below was released to showcase the DLC, and the response from the gaming community has largely been one-sided with gamers excited at the prospect of hunting down the German dictator. The hate mail from people not happy with the DLC has come as something of a surprise for Rebellion.
Sniper Elite V2 is a third-person tactical shooter set during World War II. Hart told PSU that it's a "thinking man's shooter," a game that requires patience and thought rather than a run-and-gun mentality.
To get access to the side-mission and a host of other goodies, gamers can pre-order Sniper Elite V2 which is due for release on 4th May on PC, Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.
