    If it's anything like Sniper Elite 2 it'll be good and more open world and tactical.

    Apparently this is going to have another kill hitler pre order exclusive mission, really hope ms sort something out for people who use DD as I would like this mission but don't want a disc.

    Yep they need to offer an incentive more for DD especially with how they are priced.

    There is no trade in value so give something of value, include DLC or season passes within the DD price or a for a little bit more. Include Xbox Live maybe or MS Points/Credit.

    If I remember right Forza, ryse and dr3 all offered day one dlc for 2 weeks for dd buyers. But that's it, not a peep has been mentioned about any other games.

    I think this is looking pretty damn good, an overdue return to the WW2 theatre.

    I don't know, but it does have a 10gb day one patch that you will have to download!!!!
    not sure why I bothered pre ordering if I have to download that.
    There should be a way of downloading the patches onto a usb drive ahead of time so you can actually play the game within hours of it arriving??

    Or you could just install the game disc whilst not connected to the net, play it for a bit then reconnect to the net and let it download the patch overnight so its ready for the next evening.

    Yea its really gone down hill, a few years ago they were the only site I used as they were cheap and dispatched orders early, now I just use Simplygames as they are cheap and dispatch even earlier but I am sure the day is coming when they too will go down the 'sell everything' route.

    They used to be really competitive. Sometimes yould have to put up with an import copy (few years back), such as I got an italian copy of rainbow six vegas but saving made it worth while.

    As they became more successful prices seemed to creep up

    Just reinstated my boomerang rental package so hopefully be able to get a copy that way! Think ill get killed If I buy another game at the minute

    My copy has arrived from SimplyGames, but no DLC code?
    I was under the impression that if you pre ordered the game from anywhere before the 27th of June, you got the Hunt the grey wolf DLC free?

    I don't think its with every copy as Shopto have two versions listed, one with DLC and one without so I assume all of Simplygames stock is without.

    Seems all pre-orders in the US get it though but the game is not released there till next Tuesday, makes a change for us to have it before them.

    I was going to go with Tesco as it was slightly cheaper ( they get the DLC as well) but as I thought all got the DLC, so I went with SG as I also thought they would release it early, both assumptions proved to be wrong!

    Installed the game with the Network cable unplugged and then plugged it in after the install to do the update, after 40 minutes it's done 8%:suicide:.

    I'm assuming that this can be played off line without downloading the 10GB update.

    Taking Xbox to a mates tonight and don't want to have to wait until this is installed - God knows how long it would take.
