Sniper Elite 5 announced
Shooting franchise will return next year
Developer and publisher Rebellion has announced Sniper Elite 5.
The new entry in the long distance shooting franchise will see elite marksman Karl Fairburne travel to France in 1944. As part of a covert US Rangers operation to weaken the Atlantikwall fortifications along the coast of Brittany, Karl makes contact with the French Resistance. Soon they uncover a secret Nazi project that threatens to end the war before the Allies can even invade Europe: Operation Kraken. It’s Karl’s mission to take out the high ranking Nazi officers and end Operation Kraken once and for all.
Based upon real-world locations from France in 1944, the new game maps are said to be the largest in the franchise’s history. The game's new traversal system offers players an even greater sandbox of options when it comes to taking out their targets.
You can also invade another player’s Campaign as an Axis sniper. Alternatively, as Karl, you can call for assistance and have a second sniper drop in to help.
Sniper Elite 5 will release on Xbox Game Pass, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 4 & 5, and PC in 2022.
