Rebellion has released a brand new trailer in the run-up to Sniper Elite 5‘s May 26th, 2022 release date, and as expected, the bullets fly and so does the blood.
The latest Sniper Elite 5 trailer is a showcase for series protagonist Karl Fairburne and his mastery of a rifle, and his dedication to planting as many bullets in the skulls, guts, and groins of the Nazi scum.
With a comprehensive weapon suite with over 200 loadout options, players will be able to craft their loadouts to suit their playstyles, as well as help overcome some of the trickier objectives throughout the game’s campaign.
Players who want to take the traditional stealth-based approach are well catered for with numerous suppressors, stocks, muzzle breaks, and more. But stealth isn’t the only way to turn a Nazi into a hashtag. Players who want to run and gun their way through the game will be able to do so, too, so long as they pack the right firepower and keep their bloody heads down…
“Sniper Elite has always been defined by its authentic gunplay and we wanted to take that to the next level for Sniper Elite 5,” commented Jason Kingsley, CEO of Rebellion. “We have concentrated on enhancing the character and feel of our weapons, including the addition of an ‘Ironsights’ perspective for pistols and secondary weapons such as SMGs.”
“Having conducted thousands of hours of playtests over the course of the franchise, it is clear that everyone plays the game in their own, unique way. That is why we have developed the new Weapon Customization system, allowing players to adapt their weapons to best suit the way they play and ensure that everyone enjoys the experience.”
Pre-orders for Sniper Elite 5 are open now and there are some exclusive bonus goodies for those who commit ahead of release.
