Rebellion announces a May 26th release date for Sniper Elite 5 in explosive new trailer

From Press Release:

OXFORD (March 16, 2022) – Rebellion, one of the world’s most successful independent studios, has today announced that Sniper Elite 5 will launch globally on Thursday, May 26, 2022. Available to pre-order now, the latest game in the award-winning franchise will release simultaneously on Xbox Game Pass, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4 & 5, Epic, Steam and the Windows Store. To celebrate the announcement, a new Sniper Elite 5 trailer is now available to watch here: https://youtu.be/s_AeRULyTnU

The new trailer gives details of the storyline and the main characters that will feature in Sniper Elite 5 as elite marksman 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.

Pre-Order Bonus

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.

Deluxe Edition

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

Sniper Elite 5 will launch globally on Thursday, May 26, 2022 on Xbox Game Pass, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4 & 5, Epic, Steam and the Windows Store. The game features an extensive Campaign, which can be played with two-player online co-op, with locations painstakingly recreated using photogrammetry to ensure a deeply immersive experience. Online, the new Invasion Mode allows players to drop into each other’s Campaigns and take the role of an Axis Sniper with high rewards on offer. This brings a whole new dimension to the game’s intense drama and extra diversity to the enemies you will face on the battlefield. Additionally, 16 players can face off in adversarial multiplayer in a variety of game modes.
