I gotta tell you, I was concerned that I’d be waiting until October for a new sniper game, but thankfully, Sniper Elite 5 will be releasing Thursday, May 26, 2022.
Here’s the release date trailer to tease you, just a bit (apparently they’re restricting it pretty hard due to content and won’t allow embedding at this time).
Preordering will get you the classic “Kill Hitler” mission plus some gear; nothing new or exciting on that front. There is DLC planned, so grabbing the deluxe edition (for a whopping $79.99 USD) may be worth it to some since it has the season pass.
Visuals look improved: Nothing groundbreaking, but lighting tech in the engine overall looks to have seen a bump.
Speaking of tech, it’s a shame that it doesn’t appear we’ll see any sniper games with more modern precision shooting technology this year, but I’ll take what we can get.
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have a new deadline on beating Elden Ring and cranking out more guides.
