Sniper Elite 5 kommt im Mai: 2-Spieler-Koop und X-ray Kill Cam kehren zurück
Sniper Elite is a video game franchise known for its X-Ray kill-cam where players become a sniper during World War II. The next game in the series, Sniper Elite 5, will have the return of elite marksman Karl Fairburne. Today, Rebellion has announced that the upcoming game will be hitting store shelves on May 26, 2022. It’ll be available simultaneously worldwide on Xbox Game Pass, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Epic, Steam and the Windows Store.
You can check out the mature-rated trailer via the YouTube link detailing where the story will take Karl next.
Sniper Elite 5 will have a single-player campaign, but since we had a lot of fun playing online co-op in Sniper Elite 4, we’re excited to see the return of the two-player online option in the upcoming game.
There’s a new online mode called Invasion Mode, where players can drop in on other players’ campaigns to try to take them out as an Axis Sniper. If that’s not enough, there are a bunch of PvP multiplayer modes with 16 players.
Pre-orders are available, with the pre-order bonus including the ‘Target Guide’ campaign titled “Wolf Mountain. Here’s your chance to infiltrate the Berghof, Hitler’s private mountain retreat in the Bavarian Alps, and assassinate the dictator. Getting to Hitler won’t be a cakewalk since it’ll be filled with heavily armed personal guards and snipers.
The pre-order bonus also includes the P.1938 Suppressed Pistol, which is based on a Special Forces experimental prototype.
The Season Pass has also been announced and will include two additional missions. Here’s the list of what to expect:
Two Campaign Missions
Two Weapon skin packs
Two Character Packs
Six Weapon Packs
If players want both the Season Pass and another way to get the pre-order bonus, there’s the Deluxe Edition.
Synopsis: Karl Fairburne uncovers a Nazi plot to turn the tide of the Second World War, codenamed Operation Kraken. Karl has to use all of the skills at his disposal to gather intelligence about the plans and make sure they never come to fruition. This will pit him against the scheme’s mastermind, Abelard Möller, an Axis Obergruppenführer, who must be stopped at any cost.
