Sniper Elite 5 | Season 2 Update & Free Content

January 24th 2023


The time has come.

You seamlessly tackled the gun batteries in Landing Force and took on legions of Axis resistance in Conqueror… but the fight isn’t over yet.

We are delighted to announce that Sniper Elite 5, Season 2 is coming and it’s coming SOON! To celebrate the news, and to reward your efforts on the front lines in Season 1, we’ve just dropped some free DLC to keep you going in the meantime.

Karl Fairburne hides behind a tree over-watching a destroyed church. Monika Grep lies prone beside him, rifle at the ready.

FREE No-Cross Map Landing Zone:

For those of you who continue the battle outside of the campaign, the wait for a new No-Cross map is finally over. Revisit the dramatic setting of Landing Zone but this time, there’s a unique twist…

Rather than the central No-Cross map divide, we’re introducing a circular divide to this map for the very first time. In this instance, that means restricting one team to the central part of the village, whilst the opposition surrounds them on all sides.

An array of additional vantage points have also been introduced to allow for more sniping opportunities so neither side should be underestimated. Good luck snipers, Landing Zone awaits…

Two soldiers are engaged in combat. They are fighting by a downed aircraft. One hides behind a wall whilst the other has recently triggered his rifle.

FREE Winter Weapons Skin Pack:

It’s still pretty arctic in these parts, so what better way to celebrate the cold, than with a FREE Winter Weapon Skin pack, available now across all platforms. Drape your rifle collection (all current base models and DLC items) in the finest icy skins. Dispatch your foes in cold style!

Karl Fairburne holds his SMG adorned with the Winter Weapons Skin wrap.

Season 2 Update:

Whilst we can’t share any exact dates on the upcoming Season 2 releases for 2023, we can tell you that the season will include:

  • 2 Campaign Missions
  • 6 Weapon Packs
  • 2 Weapon Skin Packs
  • 4 Character Skins
Karl Fairburne holds his SREM-1 sniper rifle and looks out towards a bridge on the horizon.

As well as this, we’ll be releasing several free Multiplayer Maps and a free weapons pack to keep the Community well-armed. For more top-secret Season 2 related intelligence, including a brand new weapon and map reveal, check out our very first Community update, available now on YouTube:

Sniper Elite 5 Original Soundtrack:

One final update from us here at Rebellion HQ - we’re delighted to share that the complete soundtrack for Sniper Elite 5 is available to stream, download and own now.

Featuring incredible performances from The Bratislava Philharmonic Orchestra & Choir the Sniper Elite 5 score was written and produced by composer Mark Rutherford – his fourth full game in the series.

Karl Fairburne kneels with sniper rifle at the ready. In the background an array of soldier look to move upon a seemingly defended beach.
