It was finally announced this week that Sniper Elite V2 is coming to Wii U, now developer Rebellion explains exactly why the Wii U version will be the definitive version of the multi-platform game. CEO Jason Kingsley says that the Wii U’s GamePad really dials up the tactical elements of the game, and makes them that much more satisfying. He uses a number of examples of how the Wii U GamePad can be used to improve the game. Read on to find out more.
“Sniper Elite has always been about letting players think carefully about how to execute their missions. Marking patrols, planning the perfect vantage point, setting traps to defend your position…but the Wii U’s GamePad really dials up the tactical elements of the game and makes them that much more satisfying.”
“Using the GamePad a player can now track the exact positions of any patrols they’ve ‘tagged’ in real-time, and locate any explosives they’ve set – in fact the map even tells you the diameter of their explosions, so you can work out exactly when to set them off for maximum carnage.”
“These are all things you can’t do on the current console and PC versions. The fact that it’s all at a glance too – rather than hidden away in a menu — means you can react quicker. That’ll come in handy because the game can get pretty tough if you’re spotted.”
