Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army 2 coming to PC

Xbox One and PlayStation 4 versions being mulled over.

by

UK developer Rebellion has announced Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army 2 for the PC.

The sequel will be released on the PC before the end of the year. The original game, which Rebellion says was a "gamble," was released in February 2013 and "pretty much made its money back" on the first day of release.

Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army is a four-player co-op spin-off to Sniper Elite V2. Rebellion explained the sequel to Eurogamer, with creative head Tim Jones saying that "we really wanted to heighten the demonic, nightmarish tones of the first game."

Rebellion boss Jason Kingsley said the studio was also considering the possibility of self-publishing the game on the Xbox One and PlayStation 4.

"Before there wasn't really the possibility of self-publishing, so you couldn't even begin to think about it. You had to go via a third party and do a deal with somebody else. It made it less and less attractive."

"Nazi Zombie Army was a gamble, really. We didn't know whether it would work. We hoped people would like it. We hoped people would take it in the slightly tongue in cheek way it was meant with the title. And we obviously didn't have much money to market it."

"So we just put it out there and it's been very very good business and we've created a lot of fans who just like a straightforward gory shooter against zombies. It pretty much made its money back on the day of release. That was awesome."

so this past decades have seen like hundred games were one either kill lots of zombies or lots of nazis , so sombody thought " What about a game were u kill both!!! XD ..." yeah that shows imagination alright...


maybe in the future if  its offered as a free download for PSN plus's subscribers  I will then give it a chance.

This game is not generic at all.  I like it when developers stray away from the COD shooter formula.

Sniping and zombies is a weird combo. Glad to see they aren't afraid to try again

A gamble huh? They're a bit late to the zombie party, so the only gamble would have been if their "X is popular, let's do a game about X" tactic would have worked. Every company who tries to latch onto a profitable trend doesn't succeed, but it doesn't take much of a brain to conclude that people like zombies about as much as zombies like brains.

Even with my quadcore & 2GB HD card the original ran like crap after a few minutes of playing. If the sequel is anything like that I'll never even look at it. Clean up the original before planning a crappy sequel.

Wishing the tired zombie fetish that game developers have goes away soon.

why fight zombies with a sniper rifle in the first place?

I really can't stand any more zombie shit. Why don't you make a decent DLC about the Italian campaign for example ? There are hundreds of cool things to be made out of WW2 .. You don't have to add zombies to make it interesting.

Headshot, headshot, headshot, reload.

Rinse and repeat with zero challenge.

Well I hope it's a lot better than the first zombie army.  I thought it was way too short and very little incentive for replay.  It was fun for the first 5 hours until completion but there was no reason to go back and play it again.. and that's kinda rare for a multiplayer co-op game.  

Make it as fun and addictive as Left 4 Dead.

This first game on pc is loads of fun and definitely am glad to see there is a second game being made and also look forward to it being on a next gen console .. PS4 ... 

Xbox One will be dead by the time it comes out for PS4

I'd rather we get genres consoles don't typically have on next gen than more mediocre shooters.

the first one was fun and interesting for some hours hope this one improves and adds more things as the first got boring fast.

First one was just a V2 clone with some modifications, this one won't be much better I imagine.

Hopefully it will be better, but NZ sniper, seemed to be a cool idea, hopefully this one will be a standlalone as well, if not, just pack it into the game, or do both, buy a standalone, if you just wanted that or get the full game with NZ sniper elite 2

PC is the safest best for third party developers until next gen consoles sell at least some 5M units.

@sensesfail99 He clearly stated why not the PS3 in the article. They didn't want to deal with publishers so they left it on PC. It would blow your mind to see how many games you don't get on PS3 or XBOX for the same reason.

@poopinpat I might not have the gaming prowess you possess, but I played through the campaign by myself, single player and thought it was pretty tough. Maybe you should try this? 

This is one of my most favorite games ever, by the way.

@RicanV 

GTA V for PC will be released simultaneously with Xbox One and PS4 version... after Xbox 360 and PS3 version...

@bernard978 I think that was experimental game , hopefully this one will be bigger title . Considering the success of first game , it is possibility

@Thirty-Thirty I am 100% sure this is going to be on Xbox One, because it will be free to Rebellion to publish as an "indie" title.

Well you can't blame for being pessimistic about it, after all some games got us burned many times from fuck up business practices and also....same old same old mechanics


But still hope this game is fun

@Saidrex @Thirty-Thirty even though having exclusives does suck there is a reason why people do it.  To make games on the consoles, you first need to make some kind of contract with that company to be allowed to put your games on it, which costs money.  Then you have to spend even more money to make the copies for that console, not to mention they also have to spend even more money to program they game to work on that console as well.  There are probably more examples of the money they have to spend to be multi platform, those are just a few that come to mind.  Basically, it is cheaper to say on one platform especially if it is pc and  if it is digital.

@Sergeant_ @Ladiesman17 @RicanV He's lying, he doesn't know. But he might be right about it dropping at the same exact time. I could see 6 months or a year from now they will put it out for next gen and PC
