Hmm, color us tempted.
If you're well-versed in the ways of the gamertastic, you'll know that pre-orders are a big effing deal. There's always some kind of incentive, so these cheeky bastards can get our money in advance. Whether it's bonus in-game content, a sad little Mario keyring or an artbook or whatever, the big releases will have some extra or other coming your way.
But they're all rather tame. Feeble artbooks? Who has time for that BS? Nobody, that's who. Thankfully, Sniper Elite 3 knows what us manly men demand from our pre-order extras: the chance to assassinate Hitler in a bloody and badass fashion. Reich-teous!
Yes indeed, behold the Hunt the Grey Wolf DLC mission. Or a rather fancy teaser for it, at any rate. We're not sure why ol' Mr H seems to have borrowed Colonel Sanders' suit for the occasion, but he always did enjoy looking like a dick (just ask that mustache of his). That said, this promises to be quite an interesting little bonus, as described by 505 Games:
â€˜Hitler, Allied code name "Grey Wolf", and his double have embarked upon a secret trip to the town of Tobruk in 1942. With an expansive open environment, and randomized target identities, journals and locations, no two playthroughs will be the same. Can you tell fact from fiction, the real target from the double?'
