Rebellion has revealed a release date for its super stealth-oriented shooter, Sniper Elite 5. The game is planned to premiere on May 26, 2022, and centers on sharpshooter Karl Fairburne as he strives to unravel the elusive Project Kraken in 1944 France.
As is the case with these games, players will be placed into the World War 2 era, as Hitler’s ascent to prominence continues to expand.
You play through the eyes of a US Ranger in hopes of weakening the Atlantikwall along the coast of Brittany. Making contact with the French Resistance, you hear of a secret Nazi initiative that threatens to finish the war before the Allies can invade Europe.
The gameplay is the same as previously, where you fire down foes from afar while keeping an eye on the wind direction and bullet drop (gravity) (gravity).
Its trademark slow-motion effect is present as well, letting you track the bullet on its route to the target and view an X-ray image of the hit.
Sniper Elite 5 story and gameplay
This time around, Rebellion is moving the action to France, where the game is now being developed.
“France, 1944 — Elite marksman Karl Fairburne contacts the French Resistance as part of a secret US Rangers effort to undermine the Atlantikwall defenses along the Brittany coast,” reads an official description.
A secret Nazi plan to finish the war before the Allies overrun Europe is discovered soon: Operation Kraken. Karl Fairburne will be arriving in 1944 to put a stop to Operation Kraken, which would have prevented D-Day from ever occurring.”
There are several infiltration and extraction locations scattered across the game world, giving players a wide variety of options when playing. Weapon and ammunition customization,
as well as an enhanced kill-cam, are expected to be featured in the upcoming update (with both Co-Op and PvP invasions supported).
The date for the release of Sniper Elite 5 has been set for May 26
Due for release on May 26th this year, the part stealth, part sniping game will be released on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PC, PlayStation 4, and PlayStation 5. The game will also be available on Xbox Game Pass from day one.
Sniper Elite 5 will also include a new Invasion Mode that will be comparable to those found in FromSoftware titles.
Players can anticipate being assaulted by a player-controlled Axis sniper once in a while, hence increasing suspense. The invader will also be able to utilize additional AI-controlled Axis forces to pin down the Allied player.
Rebellion has stated that it employed photogrammetry technologies to reconstruct locales properly. Each map contains various infiltration and extraction sites, so players may deal with targets in more ways than previously. Recently, it was speculated that several of the new sites had been influenced by Guernsey. Read More: Apex Legends Season 13 Release Date, Trailer & New Characters Other Latest Updates
