Rebellion has already announced Evil Genius 2 and Zombie Army 4 at E3 so far, but the publisher is not content – it still has more delicious treats to add to the wonderful buffet that has been E3 2019 so far.
Today’s offering comes in the form of Sniper Elite VR – a standalone title that promises to take the nut-busting, skull-piercing, bone-shattering fun of the series and shove it directly in your face.
Sniper Elite VR has rebuilt the iconic X-Ray killcam to make it more suitable for VR – meaning you can get as close to the action as you want, without getting viscera and innards all over your lovely face. The dream!
Rebellion revealed that the game will be coming to PlayStation VR, Oculus Rift, SteamVR and Viveport – though we have no information about when that’s going to be at the time of writing.
We’re going to get our grubby little hands on the game at E3, so be sure to stay tuned for our impressions on the game live from the show floor soon.
In the meantime, here’s everything we know about the game so far.
“Developed in partnership with Just Add Water, Sniper Elite VR takes you to the incredible setting of World War 2 Italy,” notes Rebellion in a press release.
“It’s set prior the events of Sniper Elite 4, featuring a brand new story by Tony Schumacher, author of the acclaimed John Rossett novels.”
That means fans of the series are going to be able to jump into the lore of the world a little deeper, and have more context for the ludicrous action that took place in the fourth instalment of the game.
“In Sniper Elite VR you’re fighting for the Italian resistance to rid Sicily of the Nazi U-boat menace. You’ll take on missions in an array of stunning new Italian maps.”
Rebellion tells us you’ll be able to use free movement, employ stealth and tactics to suit your play style, and use an array of authentic World War 2 weaponry to take out your targets.
So it’s all the stuff you love about the mainline games, with that immersive VR twist.
“Sniper Elite VR will, of course, feature the series’ genre-defining ballistics and long-range gunplay” Rebellion continues.
“The game will also see the return of the iconic X-Ray Kill Cam, completely rebuilt from the ground up for VR.”
You can see the gameplay trailer embedded on this page, and it’s also worth noting Sniper Elite VR will also offer support for both Aim and Move controllers on PlayStation VR.
Stay tuned for more news soon.
