Sniper Elite 5’s ludicrous long-range action will take aim at the PlayStation 5 and PS4 from 26th May – perhaps sooner than anticipated! Rebellion’s reliably excellent ballistics bonanza will take place in France this time, as immaculately groomed Karl Fairburne wages war on a mysterious Nazi plot known as Project Kraken. One twist to the gameplay this time will include an invasions mechanic, meaning other players will be able to infiltrate your single player missions and pick you off from afar.
Pre-orders will come bundled with an additional mission, named Wolf Moutain, in which you’ll infiltrate Hitler’s personal retreat in the Bavarian Alps, as well as the P.1938 Suppressed Pistol. If you plump up for the Deluxe Edition, meanwhile, you’ll get all of the aforementioned pre-order bonuses, as well as the release’s Season Pass.
Here’s what’s in store, according to Rebellion: “The Season Pass will give players access to a post-release two-part campaign on extensive maps where they can arm themselves with an expanded armoury of authentic World War II weapons and customise their sniper with new character packs and weapon skins.” In total, you’ll get two campaign missions, two weapon skin packs, two character packs, and six weapon packs.
In other, unrelated news, the developer has also pledged support to the Red Cross DEC Ukraine Appeal. As part of a statement, the studio said: “The thoughts of Rebellion are with everyone affected by the current situation in Ukraine.”
