Or, specifically, the one big game you should play this week, the one big piece of gaming news you need to know about, and the one big deal available to purchase this week.

GAME OF THE WEEK

Sniper Elite 5

Once again taking control of elite sniper Karl Fairburne, Sniper Elite 5 sees you travel to France in 1944 in order to destroy a secret Nazi project.

This is all just background dressing for the real reason you're here: the sneak 'n' stalk aspect of the gameplay. The wide open arenas give you plenty of scope - SNIPER JOKE - to tackle each mission in a number of different ways. And as per usual, if you get a confirmed kill, the game will tell you all about it by the X-ray vision of the bullet flying towards and through your target.

Sniper Elite 5 is available right now on Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, PS4, PS5 and PC.

BIG NEWS OF THE WEEK

We get our first look at the Star Wars Jedi sequel

Released in 2019, Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order was a very successful melding of the Star Wars universe with a Dark Souls-esque gameplay, as you take control of Cal Kestis, a Force-powered Jedi apprentice on the run from the Empire following the events of Order 66.
