Poll What Review Score Would You Give Sniper Elite 5?
On target or out of focus?
The Sniper Elite series has been aggressively consistent, with storied developer Rebellion fine-tuning its execution with each iteration, rarely reinventing the wheel, but doing just enough with the franchise’s established stealth/sniping gameplay to keep it fresh. Gruff protagonist Karl Fairburne’s latest infiltration...
News Shoot Hitler in the Balls and Unlock a Sniper Elite 5 Trophy
Not only will Sniper Elite 5 reward you for killing Adolf Hitler in its day one DLC package Wolf Mountain, but it will also hand you a Trophy for targeting his private parts.

Hands On Sniper Elite 5's PS5, PS4 Sandbox Design Has Us Hyped
With open worlds larger than ever, we appreciate the developers designing denser sandbox levels. Ever since the excellent GoldenEye on Nintendo 64, we’ve been a fan of the sandbox format: the idea that a single stage can be approached in a dozen different ways, whether it’s stealth, full-on combat, or a combination of both. Hitman...
News Sniper Elite 5 Goes Gold Ahead of May Release Date
Developer Rebellion has announced that Sniper Elite 5 has gone gold, meaning that it's ready to ship.

It's carrying out its mission on both PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4. Sniper Elite 5...
News Sniper Elite 5 Scopes Out a 26th May PS5, PS4 Release Date
Sniper Elite 5’s ludicrous long-range action will take aim at the PlayStation 5 and PS4 from 26th May – perhaps sooner than anticipated!

News Sniper Elite 5 Teases Online Invasion Mode in Glossy PS5, PS4 Trailer
Hunt the hunter
Sniper Elite 5 promises the same long-distance thrills that you’ve no doubt become accustomed to over the years, with one major twist: your game can be invaded by an Axis sniper. This means that while you’re busy picking off Nazis as protagonist Karl Fairburne, there’s a chance you may be outwitted by an opponent who’s joined...
News Sniper Elite 5 Set to Feature Locations Inspired By Guernsey
Oh my gâche
In what is almost certainly the most exciting news the island has seen in an age, Guernsey is set to sort-of feature in a big-budget video game. Sniper Elite 5 is the upcoming entry in Rebellion's long-running franchise, and it's taking its Nazi-blasting action to Brittany. While the game will take place on the French mainland, some...
News Rebellion Goes Loud with Sniper Elite 5's PS5, PS4 Reveal
Targeting 2022 release window
Do you think Karl Fairburne’s voice actor gargled gravel before reading the script for Sniper Elite 5’s reveal trailer? The special agent is sounding distinctly haggard in this short 60-second gameplay clip, but then again, he’s probably sick of all the Nazi resistance he keeps coming up against. Rebellion...

4K, 60 FPS, faster load times
Update: As it turns out, these PS5 enhancements are actually being applied to the PS4 version of Sniper Elite 4 instead of Rebellion shipping a new native version. So instead of looking for a PS5 version on the PS Store, you need only download the pre-existing PS4 edition and ensure it's fully patched. Then you'll be...

News New Sniper Elite in Development, But No News for a Year
Popping penises on PS5?
A full-scale sequel to Sniper Elite 4 is in development at Oxford-based developer Rebellion, but it won’t be sharing anymore information for a year. That’s particularly curious timing, when you consider that we’d expect the PlayStation 5 to be officially announced by then. Could it be a next-gen title? We honestly...
News Sniper Elite V2 Remastered Busts Nazi Balls This Year
Third time's a charm
Sniper Elite started life on the PlayStation 2, and was later remade for the PlayStation 3 in the form of Sniper Elite V2. What harm is another console generation going to do, then?

Video Set Your Sights on Some Sniper Elite 4 PS4 Gameplay
We've busted our balls busting balls to bring you a Sniper Elite 4 review ahead of its release date, but you probably fancy a bit of video footage to go with it, right? The above isn't the tightly edited clip you've come to expect from Push Square; technical issues put pain to that. But it does include a good 12 minutes of gameplay...
News Point Your Scope at Sniper Elite 4's 101 Trailer
We love these 101 trailers that Rebellion likes to put out. There's nothing wrong with fancy cinematic trailers, but sometimes you just want to know what a game has to offer, and this Sniper Elite 4 clip spells it all out so that there can be no confusion. It details everything from the kind of gameplay experience you can expect, right the...
E3 2016 Sniper Elite 4 Will Take Aim at PS4 from 14th February
Down the barrel
Sniper Elite 4 will bunker down for a few more months than expected, as Rebellion has attached a 14th February release date to the long-range shooter. The title was originally due out later this year, but with BattleZone releasing alongside PlayStation VR in October, the Oxford-based developer has decided to push the game back a few...

News Sniper Elite 4 Targets the Most Gruesome Low Blow on PS4 Yet

News Zombie Army Trilogy Rises from Its Grave on PS4
We did Nazi that coming
With all of the testicle targets and what not, British developer Rebellion's strangely popular Sniper Elite series is already insane – but Zombie Army Trilogy aims to up the ante with hordes of the undead.

The visual wizards over at Digital Foundry report that the Japanese giant’s next-gen console provides the best home for long-distance shooter Sniper Elite III – assuming...
Review Sniper Elite III (PlayStation 4)
It’s ironic that so soon after the release of Valiant Hearts: The Great War, another title with a very different outlook on war has stealthily marched onto the PlayStation 4. In Sniper Elite III, rather than making you think about the needless loss of life, this latest instalment in the distance shooter series asks that you revel in...

News Aim for the Head in Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army on PS4
Ever since it’s allowed you to detach the private parts of opposing forces, it’s been hard to take Rebellion’s long-range shooting series Sniper Elite seriously.

News Sniper Elite 3 Will Allow You to Rearrange Circulatory Systems on PS4
For as unashamedly goofy as it may be, there’s something entertaining about the Sniper Elite series’ ostentatious X-ray killcams.
