Order the game early and you'll get a special mission to take out the Fuhrer.

Preorder bonuses usually include things like special weapons, alternate costumes and even exclusive characters. The preorder bonus for 'Sniper Elite V2' is, well, Hitler.

The upcoming 'Sniper Elite V2' is a game that puts you in the shoes of a World War II sniper, carrying out missions to advance the cause. Those who preorder the game can take part in a mission that would have completely changed the course of the war. "Intel has been received that Hitler is returning from Berchtesgaden to Berlin via his personal train," explains publisher 505 Games. "Players must intercept the train as it waits at the station and take down the Fuhrer as he hastily makes way for the station on foot."

Killing Hitler is a common theme in media, whether it be 'Inglourious Basterds,' 'Valkyrie,' 'Doctor Who' or 'Futurama.' It's a shared dream, even by those who were born long after the war, and it should prove an interesting incentive for folks to pick the game up.
