Rebellion Studio has officially announced Sniper Elite 5 – the new part of the shooter series in which your main weapon is a sniper rifle. The game will be released on PC via Steam, Epic Games Store and Microsoft Store, as well as on PlayStation 4, PlayStaion 5, Xbox One and Xbox Series X | S consoles.

In the story, as part of the secret operation of the US Army Rangers to weaken the Atlanticwall fortifications along the coast of Brittany, Charles comes into contact with the French Resistance. They uncover a secret Nazi project that threatens to end the war before the Allies can invade Europe, called Operation Kraken. Karl’s task is to destroy the Nazi officers and end the operation.
The new part offers the largest locations in the history of the series, which are based on real locations from France in 1944, recreated using photogrammetry. Players have even more freedom in how to destroy the target. The physics has also been improved and the stock and barrel parameters, as well as gravity, wind and heart rate, must be taken into account when firing. In addition, there are new possibilities for customization.
The storyline allows you to go through the co-op, which also acquired new features. If you wish, you can invade an alien world to start the hunt, or vice versa. There is also a 16-man PvP mode and a 4-man PvE survival mode with waves of enemies advancing.
