Despite the fact that it’s been a little more than five years since the last installment in the Sniper Elite series was released, Rebellion Developments’ World War II stealth shooter franchise will be making a triumphant return in 2019. Sniper Elite 5 is set to arrive in less than two months, and Rebellion announced on Twitter that the game has reached gold status ahead of time.
Sniper Elite 5 gold is now ready to be burned into discs (or uploaded to digital distribution platforms), and any problem fixes or additional polishing work completed after this point will be released as pre-launch or day one patches (though none have yet been officially announced).
A lethal Nazi plot will be dismantled in France in 1944, and the series’ protagonist Karl Fairburne will travel to the country to do it in Sniper Elite 5. In addition to several gameplay changes, several locations, larger maps, weapon customization, and other features, Sniper Elite 5 will also include a co-op mode, in addition to the new PvP Invasion mode, among other things.
Sniper Elite 5 will be released on May 26 for the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
🪙 We're thrilled to announce that @SniperElite 5 has now GONE GOLD 📀
🏆 Our dev teams across Rebellion have done an *incredible* job and we cannot wait for everyone to get their hands on Sniper Elite 5 on May 26th

Concerning the Game:
The game has a comprehensive Campaign mode that can be played with two players online co-op. The game’s locations have been painstakingly reconstructed using photogrammetry to offer a really immersive experience for the players. As part of the new Invasion Mode, players can parachute into one other’s Campaigns and take on the role of an Axis Sniper, with big rewards on the line. This adds a completely new dimension to the tremendous drama of the game and increases the variety of the foes you will encounter on the battlefield. As an added bonus, 16 players can compete against each other in hostile multiplayer in a number of game styles.
