Sniper Elite 5 does exactly what it says on the tin. Set during World War II, you play an elite sniper on a mission to take down a secret Nazi project known as “Project Kraken”.
If you’ve never played any of the Sniper Elite games before, you’ve most likely seen highlight clips shared around the internet. It’s more famously known as the sniper game that plays detailed, slow-motion kill cams of bullets tearing through the muscles and bone of your target. Yes, it’ll even show you X-Ray cams for nut shots.
Where it differs compared to your other war shooters, like Call of Duty or Battlefield, is that it places a greater emphasis on tactics and precision. Like a good sniper, you’ll want to get into locations undetected, take your shots and then get out. To quote an absolutely ancient meme, “Boom, headshot.”
Sniper Elite 5 has an expected release of 26 May, and here’s everywhere you can pick it up for cheap before that date rolls around.
