Sniper Elite 5 recently received an update that added a free multiplayer map, new tweaks on PC, and bug fixes.

Free Map

The developers added the already existing No-Cross map Urban Ruins into multiplayer. This map is now playable on Deathmatch, Team Deathmatch, and Squad Match modes. You might notice some changes with the map, which were added to give more angles for players to fight from. The central park has more cover, while other parts of the map are more exposed. Use the environment to your advantage to secure kills.

PC Tweaks

This update brings a FOV slider on PC, a great addition considering Sniper Elite 5 is a shooter game with plenty of action. Being able to change FOV according to your preference can make it more comfortable and even help with motion sickness. You can set it anywhere between 60 and 120, but it’s only applicable on PC.
