Rebellion has officially announced the latest iteration of their iconic stealth third-person shooter series, Sniper Elite 5.
Sniper Elite, the third-person tactical stealth shooter, developed and published by Rebellion, emphasizes a less direct approach to combat, encouraging the player as a sniper to use stealth and keep distance from enemy soldiers. The titles generally take place in the 1940s, in the midst of the Second World War, where the players must take out their targets without getting noticed, using their sniper rifles.
Building on the amazing gameplay and world design of Sniper Elite III and Sniper Elite 4, Rebellion has announced the next entry of this beloved franchise. The official release date for the title has been set for “coming 2022”, making its way across almost all platforms.
