The developing team has also announced that the fifth installment will include a PvP feature as well. This will ultimately allow a player to invade another player’s campaign or invite a player to one’s campaign in order to get assistance.

For anyone who is not aware of the Sniper Elite series, it involves stealth-based, first-person shooter tactical games. The majority of the single-player missions offer a vast number of ways to finish the quests. Since the setting is of the World War 2 era, weapon choices are also based on that period. And since the title itself gives it away, the Sniper remains the primary weapon throughout the games in the franchise. However, additional sidearms like a pistol and machine guns also come in handy during certain situations.
