The GamesBeat Summit 2022 will feature the most prominent players in the gaming industry on April 26-28th.
The Sniper Elite series fills a gap in my life that I, before playing them, didn't know existed. In these games, you get to wander around cold environments and shoot Nazis in the testicles, or other places. I apologize. So, when I got a chance to see the next film, I was shocked.
The demo level for this preview is set around a French chateau. Officer Abelard Moller has taken control of the chateau and turned it into a Nazi stronghold. Our goal is to dramatically reduce the amount of Nazi testicles in the area. I was born for this role. With my rifle, SMG, and pistol, I arrived on the belly of the beast.
The scenery in Sniper Elite 5 is the immediate highlight. A field day with Rebellion's environment designers and level designers. Uncanny meadows and whispering rivers lead you up to your target area. Of course, there are also Nazis to shoot along the way. You could not afford a nicer venue!
One of the things I like about the Sniper Elite series is how the maps are created. Most of the maps are on the larger side and offer several avenues to your desired goal. Try out another route, but there are also a lot of tiny tunnels, caves, and catacombs that come out in unusual locations.
Apart from beautiful environments, we're all here for the same thing slow motion reactions of Nazis getting shot in the nads. If you haven't played one of these games, you might not understand the appeal. Let me clarify.
The game engine claims that a small crosshair pops up on your screen and shows where your bullet will eventually land. Depending on the scope, a slow motion replay shows a target, with the bullet making its way through their body. A bullet will encounter various organs and say hello in the manner only a bullet can.
The pistols in Sniper Elite 5 feature a variety of options and tweaks. For example, you may use regular or silenced ammo. It's best to save for those shots when you absolutely must be quiet.
When you homicide Nazis, strategy is the perfect match. There are sound sources throughout the game that can muffle a rifle shot. These environmental cues punch out loud noises, showing their faces on the map, and you may use that time to see your shots to minimize notice. A little timing may save you the headache of being embarrassed by ball-defending Nazis.

I wonder if there is a DLC that allows you to shoot Hitler? I will never get tired of shooting Hitler. Ever. This is the reason, Sniper Elite 5 is currently one of my most anticipated releases of the summer. Creeping around France, one set of testicles at a time (or in Hitler's case, testicule), sounds like a party to me.
The 26th of May cannot get here early enough.
