Get the latest details below.
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 Moller, an Axis Obergruppenfuhrer, who must be stopped at any cost.
Players who pre-order Sniper Elite 5 will also receive the latest mission of the much-heralded “Target Führer” campaign entitled “Wolf Mountain.” 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
