Sniper Elite 5: Gameplay and features
Sniper Elite 5 will take place in 1944 France as the player character Karl Fairburne, an elite marksman. He discovers a secret plot by the nazis known as Project Kraken that could end the world before the allies even invade Europe, and his goal is to stop it at all costs. We know; this sounds great already.
The campaign now also allows for solo or multiplayer engagement. Allowing you to play with a friend and progress through the story as you share resources, give and receive orders and heal one another.
X-Ray Kill Cam
It will also feature an enhanced X-Ray Killcam that Rebellion has promised to be more grizzly and realistic than anything we've seen in previous titles. Slow-motion can be activated for SMGs and pistols as well.
The game also features a brand new invasion mode. Here a player can silently enter another person's campaign and begin an exciting game of cat and mouse. The invaded party attempts to complete the current campaign objective while returning fire against the invader.
Weapons and Gunplay
Last but not least is the weapon customization and weapon gameplay. The game offers a massive amount of customization of your weapons. Scopes, stocks, barrels, and magazines. The type of ammo you use can be customized too, from armor-piercing rounds to non-lethal rounds, the choice is yours.
The gameplay will feature some upgrades such as advanced gunplay. Players will have to use zip lines and shimmy across ledges to get to the perfect vantage point. And factor in the rifle stock, barrel, gravity wind, and heart rate before taking that perfect shot.
That's everything you need to know and we hope you're as excited for the release of Sniper Elite 5 as we are. If you want to check out more shooter-related content, check out our dedicated third-person shooter section.
