The next installment in the Sniper Elite series is one of the most anticipated games of May 2022. Now that we are only a week away from launch, the developers at Rebellion have dropped a new gameplay trailer focusing on the newly "enhanced" kill cams as well as an update to the official PC specs.

The updated Sniper Elite 5 PC system requirements now list the recommended specs at least. However, they are still as vague as before so we've once again had to do a bit of guesstimation to figure out the right kind of hardware needed. But thankfully they are not too demanding either way.

So let's jump in and take a look at the official Sniper Elite 5 PC system requirements...

Sniper Elite 5 Minimum system requirements

Sniper Elite 5 Recommended system requirements

*PC system requirements for Sniper Elite 5 did not list any specific hardware apart from the Intel CPUs. So we have chosen the closest matching specs for both GPUs and AMD CPUs based on the hardware descriptions provided. Let us know if you think anything else would match better!

Your PC will need a graphics card that is at least as powerful as a GTX 1060 or RX 580 which should then be paired with either a Core i5-8400 or Ryzen 5 1600 processor in order to match the Sniper Elite 5 recommended system requirements. This should then deliver around 60fps performance on High graphics settings at 1080p resolution. Recommended RAM is 16GB.

Taking a look at the Sniper Elite 5 minimum system requirements you will need a GTX 970 or RX 480 GPU along with a Core i3-8100 or Ryzen 3 1300X CPU, which should will likely achieve around 30fps performance on Low graphics settings at 1080p. You will also need at least 8GB of system memory.

Overall, looking at the specs above, we recommended around a 6 year old PC in order to play Sniper Elite 5 at its best.

As ever, remember you can always check out how well your PC can run the Sniper Elite 5 System Requirements here, where you can check benchmarks and performance from other users. Compare your graphics card to the Sniper Elite 5 GPU benchmark chart and we also have a Sniper Elite 5 Frames Per Second system performance chart for you to check.

One of the few games I'm really excited for, SE4 was great, so my hopes are high for this one.

Don't f*#k it up Rebellion!

Same. I 100% sniper elite 4 so I'm looking to do the same for this.
