Sniper Elite 5 has you ‘Kraken’ Kraut nuts starting May 26

Rebellion has finally zoomed in on a definitive release date for Sniper Elite 5. The highly successful “let’s bust some German testicles” shooter franchise will see the birth of its fifth installment on May 26. To celebrate this joyous occasion, the devs treat us to a new trailer. Super geil, klasse!

Now, as some of you ‘may’ already know (no pun intended, btw), this fifth Sniper Elite takes us to a war-torn France. Oui oui, France, the land of baguettes, fine wines, countless cheeses, and unconditional surrenders. Since the French were so willing to ‘cooperate’, German forces had little trouble launching a few operations there. One of them was Operation Kraken. Well, not really. But in Sniper Elite 5 they do.

But wouldn’t it be ‘schade’ (German for shame) if some British/German sharpshooter named Karl Fairburne were to ruin those plans? You’re goddamn straight it would. But that’s exactly what’s about to happen. Karl be ‘kraken’ Kraut testies left and right, and you’ll be the one pulling the trigger for him. And that’s gonna look something like this.

If you feel like bustin’ the Führer’s alleged one and only nut, you might want to consider pre-ordering Sniper Elite 5. Early birds will be receiving the ‘Target Führer’-campaign titled “Wolf Mountain”. Keen sharpshooters will have to keep their cool and make their way through Hitler’s heavily guarded private mountain crib in order to get him wasted. But once you get your shot, it’s all on you how you present him with his own personal Final Solution.

Sniper Elite 5 will be available on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PC (through Steam, EGS, and the Microsoft Store).
