Sniper Elite 5 was amongst a batch of new 'Day One' Xbox Game Pass titles announced as part of The Game Awards earlier this week, and now we've also got a trailer to look over — with the game officially arriving in 2022.
The fifth game in the series features maps based on real world locations from France in 1944, described as "the largest and most immersive in the franchise’s history". Sniper Elite 5 includes an expansive campaign, improved co-op mechanics, enhanced kill cam, new traversal system, advanced gunplay physics and much more.
Plus, there's the addition of the Invasion mode drop-in PVP, in which you can invade another player’s Campaign as an Axis sniper, along with an adversarial multiplayer option featuring "intensely competitive" 16-player battles.
It's looking and sounding great, and we can't wait to get hands-on with it in 2022!
"Sniper Elite 5 continues the franchise’s unparalleled tactical sniping experience complete with incredible ballistics and enhanced kill cam taking the genre-defining feature to the next level. New customization options allow you to adjust your rifle, other weapons and ammo to suit the mission and your play style."
