Rebellion has released a new in-engine trailer for Sniper Elite 5 showcasing the authentic World War 2 weaponry available in it. As the press release reads, the game will have a comprehensive suite of weaponry with the most customization and attachments ever seen in the franchise’s history.
Sniper Elite 5 will pack over 200 options, including items such as scopes, suppressors, stocks, muzzle breaks, materials and more. Thus, snipers will be able to adjust their loadout to suit their playstyle and the objectives they face in each mission.
Players will be able to unlock Weapon Attachments and Customization Options by finding Workbenches within each of the levels. As different elements are added, removed or adapted the changes will be reflected in four key weapon stats: Power, Rate of Fire, Control and Mobility. A stealthy player may want to opt for Power and Rate of Fire at the cost of Control and Mobility due to their methodical approach, while the opposite will be true for a more “run-and-gun” style player.
Jason Kingsley, CEO of Rebellion, said:
“Sniper Elite has always been defined by its authentic gunplay and we wanted to take that to the next level for Sniper Elite 5. 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.”
Sniper Elite 5 will feature an extensive Campaign with support for both solo and co-op. Additionally, it will have real-world locations, painstakingly recreated using photogrammetry to ensure a deeply immersive experience. Furthermore, it will have new traversal and movement options.
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. Moreover, 16 players can face off in adversarial multiplayer in a variety of game modes.
Sniper Elite 5 will release on May 26th, and will be using the Denuvo anti-tamper tech.
