Sniper Elite 5

Sniper Elite 5 Announced!

Rebellion has announced Sniper Elite 5, and boy, I can’t wait!

I am a big fan of the Sniper Elite series of games. This will be the first that has been released since the launch of the Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 5 consoles, so I am looking forward to seeing what Rebellion can do with all the power at their hands. The good news is that Sniper Elite 5 will release on PC, PlayStation 4 and 5, Xbox One and Series X|S, and, it will also launch on to Xbox Game Pass.

Get Your Coat, We’re Going To France.

Players will again play as Karl Fairburne and will explore real-life locations from 1944 in France. We’re told that Sniper Elite 5 will contain the largest and most immersive locations in the history of the franchise.

Here are some screenshots that Rebellion has put online also.

I definitely wouldn’t want to be on the other end of that.

Best hide the evidence.

We have learned about the key features of the game via a press release from Rebellion.

Expansive Campaign – real-world locations have been captured using photogrammetry to recreate a living, immersive environment. Multiple infiltration and extraction points and kill list targets provide a whole new perspective on each mission. Take on the Nazi plot solo or work with a partner. Improved co-op mechanics allowing you to share ammo and items, give orders and heal each other.

Advanced gunplay physics and traversal – use ziplines, slide down slopes and shimmy along ledges to reach the perfect vantage point, or to sneak past a sharp-eyed lookout. Factor in rifle stock and barrel options along with gravity, wind and heart rate while you line up your sights on the target.

High calibre customisation – use workbenches to customise and upgrade virtually every aspect of your weapon. Change scopes, stocks, barrels, magazines and more. Rifles, secondary weapons, and pistols all have a huge variety of options. On top of that you can select the ammo to suit your target, from armour-piercing right down to non-lethal.

Invasion mode drop-in PVP – you can invade another player’s Campaign as an Axis sniper and engage in a deadly game of cat and mouse, providing a new dimension to the challenge as you stalk your prey. Alternatively, as Karl you can call for assistance and have a second sniper drop in to help you out of a tricky situation.

Tense adversarial multiplayer – customise your character and loadout and earn XP, medals and ribbons as you take on intensely competitive 16 player battles that will really test your sharpshooting skills. If co-op’s more your style, you can team up with up to 3 other players against waves of enemies in Survival mode.

Enhanced kill cam – more realistic and grisly than ever, the trademark X-ray kill cam returns. Showing you the true destructive power of each shot. Bones deflect bullets unpredictably, ripping a new path through enemy bodies. SMGs and pistols can also trigger kill cams, including multiple shots in dramatic slow motion.

Rebellion has said that Sniper Elite 5 will release in 2022. I am already excited about the launch of this game. In fact, I may have to fire up Sniper Elite 4 on the PlayStation soon.
