It is now official, Sniper Elite 5, the next episode of the long set of games Rebellion, will appear on May 26 on consoles and PCs. This episode will be entitled to a physical edition at Xbox and PlayStation, as confirmed by the Just for Games distributor.
The last trailer on the date represents the context of this fifth canonical component, which will see the Karl Fairburne sniper attempting to thwart a Nazi conspiracy meeting the name of Code Operation Kraken. Ruring in France of 1944, this new episode promises the largest and most worked maps of the series, with the use of photogrammetry to reproduce environments. It is also a question of multiplying the infiltration and extraction points and the number of targets to be slaughtered, for objectives to be performed in solo or in cooperation – with sharing of objects and ammunition.
The game also puts on its invasion mode to boost the interest of the PVP, since in the manner of a Deathloop, it will be possible to invade the campaign of another player as a sniper of the axis. On the other hand, Karl will be able to call a second player using a poorly engaged situation. Multiplayer side, the game plans to focus on the customization of the equipment to triumph from the battles at 16, with gain of XP, medals and ribbons to punctuate progress. Coop oriented survival mode can accommodate up to four players simultaneously.
Rebellion took the opportunity to detail the contents of the Deluxe edition, which will include not only the content reserved for pre-order but also the Season Pass. The latter will give players access to a two-part campaign after the game exit, but also to an expanded arsenal and the possibility of personalizing their sniper with new packs of characters and weapon skins. The Season Pass will be delivered with 2 campaign missions, 2 packs of weapons skins, 2 packs of characters and 6 packs of weapons.
