Rebellion has just announced the Sniper Elite 5 release date, and its coming sooner than you probably think: Thursday, May 26th, 2022 for Xbox Game Pass, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PlayStation 4 & 5, Epic, Steam and Windows Store. Players will receive a pre-order bonus in the latest mission in the Target Führer, which is called "Wolf Mountain." Players will infiltrate Hitler's private mountain retreat, the Berghof and are tasked with taking down the Führer while also contending with his heavily armed personal guard. There's also a bunch of collectables to pick up, so while you're shooting the Führer in places what will make dudes wince, be sure to look around as well.

What else can we expect from Sniper Elite 5?

The Sniper Elite 5 release date means that there's now a dwindling timer to when the game is available in player's hands. Like recent entries, there will also be a Season Pass that comes with two campaign missions, two weapon skin packs, two character packs, and six weapon packs. Basically, players will receive a two-part campaign and an expanded armory of World War 2 weapons and further customization in the form of new character packs and weapon skins. 

 

There's also a new mode in the vein of Soulsborne games called Invasion, which allows players to drop into each other's campaign and take on the role of an Axis sniper. This can also be done in 2-player co-op for even greater rewards, so while you're trying to save Western civilization with a friend, an enemy player will be trying to prevent you from doing so.

A nazi is about to get stabbed, yo
Suffice to say, he did nazi this coming.

As expected, there will also be an 16-player multiplayer mode where you'll be able to shoot people from absurd distances and ruin their day. That isn't to say that you will, necessarily-Sniper Elite's online modes are full of veteran players-but you can certainly try.
