In the next six months SOFREP will launch addition blogs that will address specialty items such as Military/Intelligence related books, video games, and more. 

First out of the gate will be our hard core game review site, Hot Extract,  which will be one of the only places on the Internet to go for authentic military game reviews. All our reviewers have served in the military in some capacity. We look forward to providing you with SOFREP approved titles and in the mean time check out what we’ve been up to…


An unprecedented opportunity has been arranged through the collaboration of SOFREP and the minds behind the upcoming video game release, Hitman Absolution. After the 2009 merger of publishers Eidos and Square Enix, IO Interactive and Square Enix are revitalizing the Hitman series with a bang.

Together, Square Enix and SOFREP’s own Brandon Webb have something right up the alley of every shooter fans’ dreams: actual range time with Brandon himself.

As part of an ongoing contest to promote the full game, a standalone preorder bonus has been made available exclusively through GameStop that provides huge incentives for fine tuning the Hitman craft. It’s not uncommon, lately, for big games to offer some form of beta game play or simply a demo; but, not typically do your early accomplishments carry over to the full game afterwards. Hitman Absolution, via this preorder bonus entitled, Sniper Challenge, does that and more.

Our friends at Square Enix provided us with the Sniper Challenge mission and we put it through the ringer. As expected, Hitman is back with his signature red tie, tailor made suit, and cold-hearted assassinations. This is the 5th title in the Hitman series and is easily slated to be the biggest and best yet.
