This time, Rebellion’s game unveils how its customizable weapons were recreated for authenticity.
“Rebellion, one of the world’s most successful independent studios have released a new video for Sniper Elite 5, which gives in-depth insight from the development team about the variety of weapons in the game and the incredible customization options available to the player. The new Weapons & Customisation Spotlight also reveals the steps the team at Rebellion takes to recreate the authentic weapons in minute detail.
Rebellion worked with renowned military historian and star of the Combat Dealers TV show, Bruce Crompton, and the Imperial War Museum and Royal Armouries Museum to capture thousands of reference images and audio recordings of World War 2 weapons and vehicles to help ensure maximum authenticity. The new video takes you behind the scenes and shows the meticulous level of detail that goes into creating the game.
Sniper Elite 5 offers a level of customization never seen before in the franchise, with players able to change a weapon’s stock, magazines, receiver, barrel, scopes and iron sights, and materials. This enables the player to finesse their weapons to best suit their playstyle, whether stealthy and methodical, ‘run and gun’, or a mixture of the two. Customization options can also be accessed during gameplay as the player discovers Workbenches in the game maps. These will, in turn, unlock further customization options,” the press release says.
Sniper Elite 5 will launch on May 26 on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series, PC (Steam, Epic Games Store, Microsoft Store), PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. It will also be part of (Xbox) Game Pass. Previously, we also mentioned the pre-order bonuses: “Players who pre-order Sniper Elite 5 will also receive the latest mission of the “Target Führer” campaign entitled “Wolf Mountain.” Players will infiltrate the Berghof, Hitler’s private mountain retreat in the Bavarian Alps, crawling with heavily armed personal guards and a slew of collectables for eagle-eyed snipers. They are tasked with taking down the Führer in the most imaginative way possible. Additionally, those who pre-order will receive the P.1938 Suppressed Pistol. This powerful handgun is a must-have for covert operations based on a Special Forces experimental prototype.”
