Those hoping to grow their backlogs on the cheap today are in luck: For the next 24 hours, you can download tactical shooter Sniper Elite V2 free of charge from Steam.

Sniper Elite V2 was released on PC in 2012 by series developer Rebellion. It's a lengthy game for a shooter and offers traditional multiplayer and cooperative play online, which is always welcome. However, the game's AI can be problematic, as noted in our review. Considering it's free, though, there's no reason not to give it a try.

The promotion runs from now through June 5 at 10 AM Pacific. It's no doubt meant to give everyone a taste of the Sniper Elite series, which will see the release of its latest game, Sniper Elite III, on July 1 for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3 in North America.
