While it isn’t confirmed exactly which games will be revealed or discussed, video game fans have reason to be excited as you might remember that last year’s event provided a first look at Elden Ring.

According to a tweet from reporter Jeff Grubb, the Modern Warfare 2 gameplay reveal might take place during Summer Game Fest. The report claims that we’ll get our first look at the CoD 2022 title on the week of June 6.

This lines up with the rumors that Modern Warfare 2 will be revealed in June through a standardized reveal trailer that features footage of the game’s campaign.

Sniper Elite 5 Co-Op: Modes & how to play with friends

Sniper Elite 5 Co-Op lets players team up and snipe their way through levels together, here’s all of the co-op modes you need to know about.

Published

Sniper Elite 5 lets you team up with a friend to score gory X-ray kills on unsuspecting soldiers as a duo. Here’s how to play Sniper Elite 5 Co-Op and the modes available to you.

Karl Fairburne is back in Sniper Elite 5, and the series’ iconic slow-motion executions are in full effect as he looks to take the fight to the Nazis in WW2 France.

Alongside an action-packed single-player campaign mode, developer Rebellion has placed greater emphasis on multiplayer this time around. Not only does the Axis mode allow players to invade other games and wreak havoc, but there are also plenty of options for co-op play.

Here’s everything you need to know about Sniper Elite 5 Co-Op, from how to invite friends and the modes available.

Sniper Elite 5 Co-Op modes

There are two different co-op options in Sniper Elite 5; Co-Op Campaign and Survival. Co-Op Campaign does what it says on the tin, and allows you and a friend to tackle Karl Fairburne’s story together, calling out enemies and coordinating kills like a well-oiled machine.

It’s worth noting that co-op starts a separate save file to any single player progress, and doesn’t pick up where you left off. This means you’ll have to start from scratch if you want to play with a friend, rather than having them hop in to help with one specific section.

The second co-op mode is Survival, where up to four players work together to defend a specific area from waves of enemy troops. Ammo and special items can all be shared around the squad as you try and hold on for as long as possible.

It’s an activity that will be familiar to fans of Gears of Wars’ Horde mode, with players facing increasingly difficult enemies in an attempt to rack up a high score.

How to play Sniper Elite 5 Co-Op

Whichever mode you choose to play, Sniper Elite 5 Co-Op can be accessed directly through the main menu.

We’ve broken it down into an easy step-by-step guide below:

  1. Boot up Sniper elite 5 and head to the main menu
  2. Hit the ‘Play’ option at the top of the list
  3. Under Campaign, select ‘Host Co-Op Game,’ or select Survival mode
  4. Adjust your settings for the experience you want
  5. Invite your friend and away you go!

Does Sniper Elite 5 have split-screen?

If you were hoping to play local co-op with a friend, unfortunately, Sniper Elite 5 doesn’t have a split-screen option.

At the time of writing, the only way to experience Sniper Elite 5 with other players is via online multiplayer or by taking it in turns on the same controller. It remains to be seen if Rebellion decides to add the feature later down the line.

The latest installment to the Sniper Elite franchise doesn’t just offer a single-player story experience, it also gives the option of co-op so that you can enjoy the campaign with your friends.

The game also brings a Dark Souls-esque Invasion Mode, a 16-player competitive battle called Axis, and the co-op Survival mode.

With all these great options for multiplayer, some players may be wondering if the game is cross-platform, either from PC to consoles, Xbox to PlayStation, or even last-gen to next-gen.

Sniper 5 Elite does support cross-platform play, allowing those on all platforms to group up and play together or against each other.

Crossplay works between all platforms, meaning players on PC, Xbox, and PlayStation can all party up together. This also works for those on next-gen and last-gen, meaning players on PS4/Xbox One can party up with PS5/Xbox Series S & X.

There is also an option to disable cross-play if you’d prefer to stick with players on your own platform.
