If you enjoy sniping Nazis, you’ll probably be pleased to hear that Sniper Elite 5 pre-orders are now available. The Sniper Elite series has been entertaining gamers with its stealth shooter gameplay since 2005, and despite its name, this will actually be the tenth instalment in the series.
So what do you need to know before you get your Sniper Elite 5 pre-orders? Well, while previous games in the series have sometimes gone for the FPS genre, this one gives you a third-person perspective, bringing the game back to its roots. Meanwhile, the scenarios you face are designed so that you can approach them in different ways depending on your preference. It encourages you to think outside the box, and its smart enemy AI makes everything feel more challenging, and more rewarding.
There are also a couple of different versions of the game, and we’ve got an overview of them both, to help you decide which one will be best for you. Each version comes with its own selection of pre-order bonuses.
Here are the two different editions of Sniper Elite 5:
Sniper Elite 5 Standard Edition Pre-Orders
If you get the standard version of the game (available on all current PlayStation and Xbox consoles), you’ll get an extra part of the story, the ‘Wolf Mountain’ campaign. This sees you on a mission to assassinate Hitler himself. It’s an exciting little treat in addition to getting the base game on the Sniper Elite 5 release date.
Sniper Elite 5 Deluxe Edition Pre-Orders
Those who decide to pre-order the Deluxe Edition of the game will see themselves treated to, not only the Wolf Mountain campaign mentioned above, but also an exclusive gun, the P.1938, which is sure to come in handy as you play through the game’s missions. You’ll also get the season pass, which will give you access to the following:
- 2 campaign missions
- 2 weapon skin packs
- 2 character packs
- 6 weapon packs
