Rebellion, one of the world's most successful indie video game developers and publishers, celebrates its 30th anniversary on Sunday. To mark the occasion, all Sniper Elite 5 players will receive the new Airborne Elite Pack for free as an early birthday gift.
The pack, available now, celebrates Rebellion's origins as a British studio, giving players access to an iconic British paratrooper outfit, the long-awaited Lee No. 4 rifle and a Union Jack weapon skin for the Welrod pistol. In addition, the final content of Season Pass One, including the exciting Conqueror mission and the new free survival map Tide of War, are now available.
Sniper Elite 5: Happy Birthday Rebellion
"We believe our 30th anniversary is a great achievement and we're excited to celebrate by giving back to our loyal community with this free content for Sniper Elite 5," said Jason Kinglsey OBE, Co-Founder and CEO of Rebellion. "We see our development as a true British success story, so it was only logical that the content had a strong UK connection."
Airborne Elite Pack
Free to all players, the Airborne Elite Pack pays homage to Britain and marks Rebellion's 30th anniversary. This will give players access to the stunning Lee No.4 rifle, an iconic Parachute Regiment character skin for Karl, and a Union Jack weapon skin for the Welrod pistol.
The Lee No.4 is a British bolt-action rifle that was famous for its ergonomics and high rate of fire, achieved through the special "Mad Minute" technique. This is a special way of holding the weapon, which allows the shooter to have a better grip on the bolt for extra fast firing. The rifle is stable, very precise and versatile with a 10-round magazine in combination with the powerful 303 British Round.
In combination with the paratrooper character and the Union Jack weapon skin for the Welrod, the British military look can be completed.
Included in this package:
• Lee No.4 Weapon Pack (rifle + attachments)
• Parachute Regiment Character Skin (variant for Karl)
• Union Jack weapon skin for Welrod
Conqueror Mission, Weapon & Skin Pack
The Conqueror mission, released today, expands the exciting story of Sniper Elite 5. In the city of Falaise, the retreating Nazi forces have entrenched themselves in their last stand. They use the historic castle, which was once inhabited by William the Conqueror, as a military base. Players must breach the castle walls and take out the Nazi General entrenched there before signaling the Allied forces to begin their assault.
In addition to the mission, players will also receive the Triple Shotgun. This Luftwaffe triple-barrelled shotgun is devastating at close range and, when paired with slug grenades and a precision sight, is still effective at range. The Oak Leaf Paint Weapon Skins also give the weapons a great new look, making it easier for snipers to disappear into the undergrowth.
Included in this package:
• Conqueror Mission Pack
• Triple shotgun weapon pack
• Oak Leaf Paint weapon skins
The Conqueror Mission, Weapon & Skin Pack is available now as part of Season Pass One for €34,99 or separately for €9,99. Season Pass One also includes the previously released Landing Force, Concealed Target, and Up Close & Personal packs. With this latest release, all Season Pass One content has now been released.
Survival map Tide of War
The new free survival map Tide of War is playable in both single player and co-op modes and is available now for all players. Tide of War takes players back to the town of Colline-Sur-Mer and presents them with ever-changing challenges. Fighting takes place on the beaches, on the seashore, in narrow winding streets and further inland on spacious fields.
The environment can be used to your advantage to flank enemy forces. But be careful: the opponent can also benefit from it. Players must use all their stealth, sniping and combat skills to withstand wave after wave of attacking Nazi troops and vehicles.
Acclaimed by fans and critics alike, Sniper Elite 5 is the latest installment in the award-winning sniper franchise and is available now on Xbox Game Pass, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PlayStation 4 & 5, and PC via Steam and the Windows Store. The shooter developed by Rebellion offers a tactical sniper experience that is second to none.
