Sniper Elite 5 is a singleplayer and multiplayer stealth, TPS and FPS in the Sniper Elite series. It was developed and published by Rebellion Developments. It features a campaign fully playable in both singleplayer and co-op, and also an invasion feature where another player can take the role of an Axis sniper to try and kill the host (and co-op partner).

Sniper Elite 5 released on Steam and Microsoft Store (as a Game Pass title) on May 26, 2022. It was also meant to release on the Epic Games Store on the same date, but was pulled from sale and all pre-orders refunded before release for unknown reasons.[1]

    Does skip the launcher and just starts the game, so does not start a benchmark or changes any settings as the name of the command line argument might suggest.... other than the note below as it forces one renderer.
  3. Verified by User:Mrtnptrs on 2023-01-06
    Checked with contents of %LOCALAPPDATA%\Sniper Elite 5\GraphicsOptions.ini that literally says this in a comment at the top of the file: "###### Preference of D3D12 or Vulkan - used when bypassing the launcher (e.g. via -benchmark commandline). ###### ###### 0 = Vulkan, 1 = D3D12 ###### "
