Ubisoft might be tight-lipped on the future of stealth franchise Splinter Cell, but that doesn't stop other developers from releasing their own spin on the genre. Espire 1: VR Operative is studio Digital Lode's first new IP, and it looks to emulate the classic adventures of Sam Fisher and Metal Gear Solid's Solid Snake in PlayStation VR.

As seen in the launch trailer above, you'll stay out of sight in first-person while taking out enemies, sneaking through air vents, and hiding bodies to disguise your whereabouts. It even looks like the game makes use of speaker implementation, with one scene in the footage that states "voice command recognized". It promises free movement without the risk of motion sickness while looking rather cool in the process.

The game is already generating some positive buzz, with Upload VR awarding it an 8/10. "Espire 1: VR Operative is unquestionably the best expression of the stealth action genre we’ve seen in VR yet." Are you interested in checking the game out for yourself? Sneak into the comments below.
