The team here at Rebellion has hunkered down and is hard at work on a variety of new content for Sniper Elite 5 and we’re excited to announce that Season Pass Two is now available, bringing with it fantastic new missions, weapons, and skins. The first drop just arrived on the Xbox Store, called Rough Landing, and it includes an incredible new mission and two explosive additions to your weapon arsenal.
Developed in collaboration with our friends at Flix Interactive, the new Rough Landing mission takes you deep into thick forests after a group of Allied airmen were shot down and are now being hunted by Nazi forces. They hold invaluable information that must be kept out of the enemy’s hands at all costs. It’s up to you to find the crash sites and figure out where the fliers are stuck.
Playable in both single player and co-op, the sprawling map offers a variety of challenges with dense forest areas, a village, a mine shaft, and a giant railway bridge for you to explore. There will also be plenty of opportunities for melee combat, meaning you might need some extra firepower.
You’ll also get two brilliant new weapons as part of the Rough Landing pack: the Mosin Nagant rifle and the Sjögren shotgun. I asked Lloyd Everson, Senior Designer at Flix Interactive, to give us a glimpse of your new firepower:
“The Mosin-Nagant is a notoriously powerful and reliable Russian rifle that saw widespread service from its development in the 19th century through modern times, with the M91/30 being the most prolific variant. Thanks to its 7.62mm Russian cartridges, it has excellent stopping power and offers excellent stability, making it an excellent choice for long-range snipers.”
“The Sjögren 12G Swedish Inertia was one of the world’s first semi-automatic shotguns. It features a unique inertial system that is still being replicated in various modern shotguns over 80 years later. This system gives the gun’s recoil a distinctive feel that can be controlled to deliver accurate shots with a reasonable rate of fire.”
The all-new Rough Landing mission and weapon pack is available now as a standalone purchase or as part of the second Season Pass, which includes far more content in the coming weeks. In addition to Rough Landing, today we’re bringing a bunch of new weapons to all players for FREE! Everyone will receive the Trench Warfare Weapons Pack as part of the latest title update. Trench Warfare delivers devastating firepower perfect for close quarters combat in the form of the SMG Carl Gustav M/1945, Trench Gun and Double 1866 Pistol.
The Carl Gustav M/1945, better known as the Swedish K, was introduced in 1945 and borrowed characteristics from various World War II firearms to create a reliable and well-balanced submachine gun. With 600 rounds per minute, the Gustav delivers precise single shots while offering excellent control in continuous fire.
The Trench Gun, a powerful pump-action shotgun, was first used by the US armed forces during World War I and World War II. Fed with 12-gauge shells from its 6-round tubular magazine, it sacrifices range and rate of fire for extreme close-range damage.
Finally, the Double 1866 is a double-barreled pocket pistol designed in the 19th century as an easily concealed backup that can be quickly drawn. Although it only has a single-action trigger and produces a very low muzzle velocity, the D.1866’s unique characteristics make it a powerful close-range weapon.
That’s about the end of the latest update from the Sniper Elite Studio. We have a lot more great content Sniper Elite 5 Season Pass 2as well as lots of free drops for all players so make sure you follow Sniper Elite on twitter for all upcoming announcements.
Sniper Elite 5: Rough Landing Mission and Weapon Pack
Season Pass Two begins with the release of an awesome new mission called Rough Landing. Allied aviators, including a senior Critical Intelligence officer, were shot down over a dense forest area and are now being hunted by Nazi troops. Karl’s mission is to find the hidden pilots and retrieve the information. Deep in a forest and with a narrow mineshaft, expect plenty of hand-to-hand combat that will test your skills. Rough Landing also includes two new weapons, the Mosin Nagant rifle and the Sjögren shotgun. The Mosin Nagant is a notoriously powerful and reliable Russian rifle that saw widespread service from its development in the 19th century through to modern times. The excellent stopping power of the Russian 7.62mm rounds and great stability make this rifle an excellent sniper rifle at very long ranges. The 12G Swedish Inertia was one of the first semi-automatic shotguns to feature a unique inertial system that would later be seen in various modern shotguns. The result of this system is a distinctive feel of recoil that can be controlled to deliver accurate shots with a reasonable rate of fire. Included in this pack: • Rough Landing Mission • Mosin Nagant Rifle • Sjogren Shotgun
