Brah. We really hope your addiction to hunting Nazi scum with your sniper rifle hasn’t lessened since the last Sniper Elite game because developer Rebellion revealed today the next chapter in the series, Sniper Elite 5, releases on May 26th!
The ‘Elite Marksman’ Karl Fairburne returns as he must put an end to Operation Kraken, the latest harebrained scheme by the Nazi to win WWII. The main antagonist is Abelard Möller, an Axis Obergruppenführer, who’s the brain behind Operation Kraken.
Rebellion also detailed the pre-order bonus, the season pass, and Deluxe Edition!
Players who pre-order Sniper Elite 5 will also receive the latest mission of the much-heralded ‘Target Führer’ campaign entitled “Wolf Moutain.” Players will get to infiltrate the Berghof, Hitler’s private mountain retreat in the Bavarian Alps, which is crawling with heavily armed personal guards, and a slew of collectibles for eagle-eyed snipers. They are tasked with taking down the Führer in the most imaginative way possible.
Additionally, those who pre-order will receive the P.1938 Suppressed Pistol. Based on a Special Forces experimental prototype, this powerful handgun is a must-have for covert operations.
Rebellion has also revealed the details of the Sniper Elite 5 Deluxe Edition, which will not only include the pre-order content but also the Season Pass. This will give players access to a post-release two-part campaign on extensive maps where they can arm themselves with an expanded armory of authentic World War II weapons and customize their sniper with new character packs and weapon skins.
The Season Pass comes fully loaded with:
- Two Campaign Missions
- Two Weapon skin packs
- Two Character Packs
- Six Weapon Packs
While you wait until May for SE5, you could always play Sniper Elite VR for PlayStation VR. Read our review to see why it was one of Mr. PSVR’s top PSVR games of 2021!
