Explore ‘The Art of Stealth’ in Sniper Elite 5

May 23rd 2022

Attention snipers!

Allied HQ has passed on further intel and included a new Sniper Elite 5 video that reveals details about the stealth options that will be available to elite level snipers when the game is released on May 26th. Offering insight from the development team as well as from the game’s military advisor and motion capture artist Paul Biddiss (https://twitter.com/PaulBiddiss), the new Spotlight trailer features interviews and gameplay footage showcasing the new traversal, sneaking and takedowns in Sniper Elite 5, including new non-lethal options.

The new Spotlight video is available to watch here:

Paul Biddiss, the military advisor and action co-ordinator for a number of high-profile movies and TV shows, provided his expertise to the Sniper Elite 5 development team as well as being the motion capture artist for Karl Fairburne, helping to ensure the highest possible level of authenticity to his movements and takedowns. Speaking about his involvement in the game Paul said: “All the takedowns are realistic to the training that was given to SOE operatives… everything is realistic. There is no embellishment.”

The new video also gives details of the other stealthy options open to Karl including new traversal mechanics which open up hidden areas of the maps as well as giving the player alternative routes to approach their objectives. The player will also have to consider the audible distance of both their weapon and ammo when taking a shot if they want to remain undetected.

In Sniper Elite 5 you will have a host of non-lethal options at your disposal including the ability to incapacitate the enemy with non-lethal takedowns and ammunition. These options provide you with even greater scope to approach each mission and game scenario in a way that best suits your playstyle and your objective.

One final bit of intel for the tabletop gamers out there – preorders for Sniper Elite: The Board Game are now open from the Rebellion Unplugged webstore. This tense stealth action board game sees one player take on the role of Allied Sniper Karl Fairburne, while up to 3 players team up to command the Axis forces and hunt their enemy down.
