As a series, Sniper Elite has had a heck of a lot of fun with kill-cams. Following shots through bone and tissue. So of course it’s back for part 5.
Where the bullet meets the bone
Enhancements have been made to both the physics and the visuals behind Sniper Elite 5’s Kill Cam. Bullets can now ricochet off bones causing even further internal devastation which is shown to the player in more detail thanks to enhancements in the visual representation of the characters including more definition of the skeleton, muscles, organs and sinew.
The inclusion of iron sights for both SMGs and pistols, a first for the series, will allow players to be more accurate with those weapons, which will, in turn, trigger a Kill Cam for the most clinical of shots. Players will also have control over the Kill Cam in real-time with the ability to speed up/slow down the cinematic, as well as being able to adjust the camera angle.
A favorite feature with fans of the franchise, the frequency with which a player sees Kill Cam, can be adjusted in the game’s menu, including the ability to turn it off completely.Rebellion press release
In addition to the new kill-cam stuff, there’s also going to be a fair bit of customization for Sniper Elite 5. Players will be able to set to task at workbenches in each level. Those will allow for new customization options, and the ability to shift tactics to new mission objectives.
Sniper Elite 5 is set to release on the Xbox Series X|S, PS5, PS4, Xbox One, and PC on May 26th.
