With games like Battlezone under its belt, there’s no question that Oxford-based developer Rebellion knows its way around PlayStation VR well. And its next endeavour, Sniper Elite VR, looks like an engaging effort for headset owners – bringing the thrills and (blood) spills of its flagship sniper series to virtual reality for the first time.
Playable with the PSVR Aim Controller, PS Move wands, or the DualShock 4, this is packing a brand new campaign set in Italy during World War 2 – the same location as Sniper Elite 4. While the backdrop is being recycled, this is packing an all-new storyline, and tailor-made gameplay mechanics. And yes, don’t worry – the bullet cam is back.
Unlike previous entries, this version will play out from a first-person perspective, but you can expect free movement through its maps – and all of the same acclaimed bullet ballistics from the main game. As big fans of the franchise and the developer’s work on PSVR, this has shot straight to the top of our most wanted list. But will you be pulling the trigger when it launches on an undisclosed date?
