Rebellion Developments has released a new trailer and screenshots for Sniper Elite 5 that put the emphasis on the World War II weaponry that players will be able to use and customize to make their way through enemy ranks.
From the press release that accompanied the new material, we learn that in Sniper Elite 5 will be present the greatest variety in terms of armamentarium and accessories ever seen in the series. In fact, we speak of as many as 200 options, such as sights, suppressors, stocks, muzzle breaks, materials and more, snipers with players will be able to customize their equipment to suit their play style, thus modifying various statistics, and the objectives they face in each mission.
“The Sniper Elite series has always been defined by its authentic shooting and we wanted to take it to the next level with Sniper Elite 5,” Rebellion Developments CEO Jason Kingsley said in a press release. “We focused on improving the character and feel of our weapons, including adding an ‘Ironsights’ perspective for pistols and secondary weapons like SMGs.”
Kingsley continued, “After conducting thousands of hours of play testing over the course of the franchise, it’s clear that everyone plays in their own unique way. That’s why we developed the new weapon customization system, which allows players to tailor their weapons to best fit the way they play and ensure everyone enjoys the experience.”
