Rebellion and Just Add Water have partnered to create a new Sniper Elite title unlike anything you've seen before. The latest reveal here is for Sniper Elite VR, an upcoming all-new game coming for VR devices on the PC and PlayStation VR at a date to be announced. Specifically, it's being developed for Oculus Rift, Viveport, SteamVR, and PlayStation VR.

Sniper Elite VR is a new and standalone FPS that is set prior to the events of Sniper Elite 4. This story takes place in Italy during World War II. Since this is a VR title, the action takes place entirely within first-person, a first for the series. However, it's not an on-rails VR title. You are still free to move around the environments as you wish.

And x-rays? Yep, they're still in. However these are a special x-ray camera built for VR.

Developed in partnership with Just Add Water, Sniper Elite VR takes you to the incredible setting of World War 2 Italy. 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.

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. 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.

Sniper Elite VR will of course feature the series’ genre-defining ballistics and long-range gunplay. The game will also see the return of the iconic X-Ray Kill Cam, completely rebuilt from the ground up for VR.

As the video reveals, Sniper Elite VR will also offer support for both Aim and Move controllers on PlayStation VR.
