Sniper Elite 5 was recently released on the 26th of May. It is the fifth installment in the long-running fan-favorite series. This third-person shooter offers an unparalleled sniping experience that is unmatched by anything that has come before it. Now, even though the Steam Reviews have been largely mixed, we believe that the game is a solid entry in the series. The game takes you to 1994 France where you play as Karl Fairburne to battle the French resistance, not necessarily a step back from Sniper Elite 4 which gives you free rein to assassinate Nazis.
The fifth instalment is back with a lot of interesting new features and improved old features. The much-loved kill cam that zooms in on your most amazing kills has been enhanced. Now, guns come with more customization options than ever before. The new campaign will take you on a trip to France. And, above all, the game looks better than ever.
The game is currently available on all major platforms like PC, Playstation 4, Playstation 5, and Xbox series X/S. Now fans have been asking about the game’s availability on the Steam Deck. And, since the devs have been pretty quiet we’ve come to answer the fans. Let’s get straight to it.
Sniper Elite 5: Is it available on Steam Deck
Yes, Sniper Elite 5 is available on the Steam Deck. Now the important question is- Can the Steam Deck run Sniper Elite 5?
When the Steam Deck came out, Sniper Elite fans reported that they were able to run SE4 pretty seamlessly. And, now that the fifth part is here with a bunch of graphical enhancements, let’s see whether the Steam Deck is still up to the task or not.
From what the fans have been saying, the game has had no issues running on the Steam deck. Players have been getting stable 40-50fps at medium to high graphics. You can get better performance if you adjust the game to give you a little less eye candy in the place of performance. Although, the fans have been reporting that the in-game text seems a little small on the screen of a Steam deck.
In conclusion, according to everything we’ve heard and witnessed Steam Deck owners should have no issues running Sniper Elite 5 at a stable frame rate.
Now, that you know that Sniper Elite 5 is available on the Steam Deck and can run it flawlessly, you can go out there and own the battle against the French resistance. Visit Digistatement for more articles like this. Thank you for reading!
