Rebellion, one of the world’s most successful video games developers and publishers, has today released a new gameplay trailer for Sniper Elite 5 which showcases the enhancements made to its genre-defining slow-motion Kill Cam. For the first time in the series, Kill Cam can now be triggered by particularly clinical shots using SMGs and pistols as well as for eliminations using rifles and takedowns. The new trailer is available to view now:
Enhancements have been made to both the physics and the visuals behind Sniper Elite 5’s Kill Cam. Bullets can now ricochet off bones causing even further internal devastation which is shown to the player in more detail thanks to enhancements in the visual representation of the characters including more definition of the skeleton, muscles, organs and sinew.
The inclusion of iron sights for both SMGs and pistols, a first for the series, will allow players to be more accurate with those weapons, which will, in turn, trigger a Kill Cam for the most clinical of shots. Players will also have control over the Kill Cam in real-time with the ability to speed up/slow down the cinematic, as well as being able to adjust the camera angle.
A favorite feature with fans of the franchise, the frequency with which a player sees Kill Cam, can be adjusted in the game’s menu, including the ability to turn it off completely.
The weapons in Sniper Elite 5 have been painstakingly recreated from real-world references to ensure maximum authenticity. Players can now customize their weapons by discovering workbenches hidden within the missions. Each workbench will unlock further customization options. This means that they can adjust their chosen loadout to suit their individual playstyle and the objective that they are undertaking.
Sniper Elite 5 releases simultaneously on Xbox Game Pass, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 5, Steam and the Windows Store on Thursday, May 26th. The game features an immersive campaign, which is playable in single-player and two-player co-op, adversarial multiplayer for up to 16 players, and a new Invasion Mode which allows another player to join your game as an Axis Sniper tasked with taking you out.
Players who pre-order Sniper Elite 5 will also receive the latest mission of the much-heralded ‘Target Führer’ campaign entitled “Wolf Mountain.” The Deluxe Edition is also available to pre-order and will include Season Pass One (two Campaign Missions, two Weapon Skin Packs, two Character Packs, six Weapon Packs), Target Führer and a P.1938 Suppressed Pistol for those who pre-order.
