Rebellion’s upcoming Sniper Elite 5 will feature locations inspired by Guernsey, according to the island’s local newspaper.
According to the publication, Rebellion staff visited Guernsey back in 2018 in for note taking and also snapping reference shots of World War II-era equipment and weaponry. In addition, they also scanned and took photographs of coastal areas where German bunkers and fortifications feature, including Fort Hommet.
It’s worth nothing that Guernsey doesn’t seem to be featuring in the game itself, but the research and photos done by Rebellion will mean that some areas will be included that are clearly inspired by the channel island.
Sniper Elite 5 is pencilled in for a 2022 release on PS5, PS4, PC, Xbox Series X/S, and Xbox One. The campaign is set to take place within the French mainland, and will feature the largest maps in the series’ history.
Sniper Elite 5 continues the franchise’s unparalleled tactical sniping experience complete with incredible ballistics and enhanced kill cam taking the genre-defining feature to the next level. New customisation options allow you to adjust your rifle, other weapons and ammo to suit the mission and your play style.
