Sniper Elite is heading to VR
Rebellion has announced that it’s bringing its popular Sniper Elite series to PSVR, Oculus Rift, Vive, and SteamVR in conjunction with developer Just Add Water.
Sniper Elite VR, as the endeavour will be known, is set in World War 2 Italy, prior to the events of Sniper Elite 4. It features an entirely new story by author Tony Schumacher (responsible for the John Rossett novels), with players cast as members of the Italian resistance, attempting to rid Sicily of the Nazi U-boat menace.
This new iteration of Sniper Elite moves the series’ familiar ballistics and long-range gunplay entirely into first-person, and has reworked the iconic slow-mo X-Ray Kill Cam to better suite VR.
