Sniper Elite 5 is set to release soon, and it’ll be worth checking out for fans of stealth games and the series. And once you’ve gotten into it, you’ll find that there’s plenty to keep you busy for quite some time. In fact, developer Rebellion has confirmed that the campaign alone would provide about 20 hours of gameplay.
Sniper Elite 5’s head of design, Jordan Woodward, told Wccftech that the game offers eight unique missions set in big, sandbox settings, with the main campaign lasting 20 hours for those that engage with the game’s side missions and optional content. By the way, the range we indicated in our assessment is 15-20 hours.
“The Sniper Elite 5 Campaign includes eight missions and an epilogue.” “Each of the main missions features many goals, a kill list target, unlockable start spots, various trinkets, as well as multiple paths and approaches,” Woodward stated. “This leads to a high level of replayability, especially when the objective can be approached from several perspectives.
“The time it takes to complete the game varies greatly depending on whether you complete the side missions and your playing style. If you’re a stealthy, cautious player wishing to finish several side quests, the main game will take you well over 20 hours to complete. There’s still enough room left over for redoing missions to finish anything you missed the first time around. Others may prefer to take a more run-and-gun strategy to complete the campaign. There are numerous aspects to consider.”
Sniper Elite 5 boasts co-op support, a wave-based co-op mode called Survival, a new Invasions mechanic, and a multiplayer suite in addition to its solo storyline, so there’s bound to be a lot of stuff here.
“Sniper Elite 5 is a top-notch stealth game,” we said in our assessment of the game, giving it an 8/10. It may lack the oomph of a AAA blockbuster, but its superb stealth mechanics and intricate, painstakingly designed levels make it quite impressive in the areas that matter.”
Sniper Elite 5 will be released on May 26 for PS5, Xbox One, PS4, and PC. It will be accessible on Xbox Game Pass as well.
