A new gameplay trailer for Sniper Elite VR has been released to go alongside the announcement that the game will be coming to Oculus Quest in addition to PSVR and SteamVR. There’s still no release date confirmed, though…
Sniper Elite VR is Rebellion’s second virtual reality game, following on from the Battlezone reboot that launched alongside PlayStation VR. It’s being developed in partnership with Just Add Water and Coatsink games.
The game takes players to Sicily, as you fight in the Italian Resistance to try and rid the island of Nazis and their pesky U-boats. The whole game will take place in first person with smooth locomotion a possibility, just as you can go from sniping to stealthily sneaking, to an action-packed with guns akimbo. Oh, and there will obviously be the series’ trademark X-ray killcam through all of this.
Miguel got to go hands on with the game at E3 2019, coming away suitably impressed with how immersive and intuitive it was:
Holding the Aim controller up to your eye brings the magnifying scope into sight, and closing a single eye in real life helps you get a clearer look like it would when handling an actual gun. This sensation led to an immediately satisfying and realistic gameplay experience that brought me into the world and never let me out.
