New Sniper Elite 5 Content
 
⭐ Added free ‘Flooded Village’ multiplayer map

The new Multiplayer map “Flooded Village” pits players against one another across the vast fields and paths of a rural farming village that’s been intentionally flooded in order to prevent allied aircraft from landing. Flooded Village can be played in all multiplayer modes, including No Cross and boasts the longest shots so far in SE5’s multiplayer to date. There are plenty of vantage points to be found here and more mobile players will find a number of useful flanking routes.

⭐ Added a ‘Shooting Range’

We’ve added a new Shooting Range’ area that contains everything you need in order to fine tune your arsenal prior to entering the field. There are a number of ranges that contain targets at known distances, so you can get the hang of ‘zeroing’ your scope, try out different attachments and build optimal loadouts for each of the game modes. You can access different loadouts, game modes and difficulty settings via and in game workbench, which can be found next to each of the ranges. The Shooting Range itself can be accessed from the main menu.

⭐ Invite your friends to join as Invaders using the social menu

We’ve added a much requested feature that allows players that have been invited to games via the ‘Invite Code’ system to choose to join as an enemy Invader or a co-operative partner.
Added Support for ‘Landing Force’ Mission and Weapon Pack (D.L. Carbine, PPSH, ‘Landing Force’ Mission)

⭐ Added support for ‘Kick Voting’

During multiplayer matches, any player can now start a vote to kick another player via the ‘player card’. Other players are then notified, and are able to vote. If a player hasn’t voted by the time the timer expires, it counts as a ‘no’, There are cooldown timers preventing a single player from initiating new votes against lots of different players. You also can’t kick a player if the result would be an empty team. Results are calculated as a simple majority.

⭐ Mark as “Ready” to start sooner

Players entering multiplayer lobbies now have a ‘Ready’ checkbox they can freely toggle on/off. When the majority of players have confirmed they’re ready, a countdown timer will be auto initiated (in custom lobbies). If all players are ready, any active timer is dramatically shortened (quickmatch and custom lobbies). In either case, the game will start when the timer expires.

Currently, Rebellion has not released the official list of changes and fixes just yet, but the community has weighed in on it and confirmed that it’s mostly for bug fixes.

According to Steam users, there are a handful of fixes in multiplayer, inclusion of a Shooting Range and that’s it. On the known issues thread, which was last updated on June 27, here are the ones listed by Rebellion:

Known Issues:

  • M08 St Nazaire, Kill list challenge failed before killing the target – Please note, this is just a visual error, so if the objective is not yet completed then the challenge is not actually failed and can still be achieved.
  • Alarms are not turning off as expected once triggered by enemy AI
  • No Stone Unturned Achievement Not Unlocking – As a short-term fix, using the loud/explosive methods instead of the stealth ones will unlock this achievement.
  • Missing Crosshairs – Initial investigations appear to show this issue is caused by too little VRAM (e.g. under the 4gb min spec). As a temporary solution, we suggest reducing the texture quality settings to see if that helps (e.g. start at LOW).
  • GPU Device was lost – A small number of players seem to be experiencing an issue which throws up the GPU Device was lost error. We are aware of the problem and are investigating.
  • Windows Store Crash – (On Steam for Visibility purposes) – Windows Store Crash – We are still investigating the 20006 Windows error appearing for some players. If this is happening to you, we advise carrying out the following steps:
    – Check One: Head to Sniper Elite 5 in the Xbox App – Head to the three dots – Click manage – Then Files – Then select Verify and repair – Hit yes
    – Check Two: Ensure your Xbox App is completely up to date
    – Check Three: If that still doesn’t work, unticking ‘Use EAC’ in the options menu accessed via the cog, and running as admin via the start menu to allow access. We think this could be a platform issue for those who pre-installed so would recommend uninstalling and installing again if the above does not resolve the issue.As a final note, we’re now asking players if Sniper Elite 5 is saved to C:XboxGames. Knowing this would greatly help our investigation.
  • Performance Issues – We are aware of multiple reports of gameplay appearing to ‘stutter’ and frame rates dropping despite playing above Minimum Spec. If this is something you are experiencing, please TRIPLE check you’re playing above minimum spec (if playing on PC) and try running on DX12, Not Vulkan:What are the minimum PC requirements?
    Minimum Specifications are as follows:
    OS: Windows 10
    Processor: Intel CPU Core i3-8100 (or AMD equivalent)
    Memory: 8 GB RAM
    Graphics: DirectX12 capable GPU with 4GB VRAM
    Storage: 85GB

Chances are, we’ll see the official patch notes surface later today, and once we do, we’ll be sure to update the post. If you want to see the newest patch released before today, which include a ton of fixes, head on over here.
