Sniper Elite 5 is a third-person tactical shooter stealth game that is the sequel to Sniper Elite 4. The game stars US operative Karl Fairburne, as he embarks on a one-man mission to disrupt a secret project named Operation Kraken in Nazi occupied France that threatens to end the war before the Allies can even invade Europe. As part of a covert US Rangers operation to weaken the Atlantikwall fortifications along the coast of Brittany, Karl makes contact with the French Resistance. It's Karl's mission to take out the high-ranking Nazi officers and end Operation Kraken once and for all. Based upon real world locations from France in 1944, the new game maps in Sniper Elite 5 are the largest and most immersive in the franchise's history with the new traversal system offering you an even greater sandbox of options when it comes to taking out your targets. There are also enhanced cooperative gameplay options that enable you to invite a friend to help you on your mission.
