Sniper Rust VR is a first-person shooter coming to Oculus Rift on December 27th. Created by Zatun Game Studio, this first-person shooter promises a story-based adventure where your sharpshooting skills will be put to the ultimate test.
So what makes this shooter stand out from all the others out there? Well, besides the realistic weaponry that the developers are promising, Sniper Rust VR also offers an 18-level story-driven campaign where you play an elite marksman employed by a covert Agency to fight against an armed militia uprising across international borders. Though it’s not all shooting and asking questions later. Apparently there will be varied objectives to complete during the campaign. But if you’re not entirely convinced yet, there is a demo available now that gives you a little taste of what you can expect in Sniper Rust VR.
Check out the trailer below:
“Zatun began work on Sniper Rust VR in the month of January this year when we first got out hands on the Oculus device,” said CEO, Abhinav Chokhavatia in a statement. “We were already working on a mobile version of Sniper Rust at the time. With no sharpshooting VR games available and Oculus tech. being relatively new, we believed creating a virtual reality version would be a good idea.”
The Sniper Rust VR demo is available now on the Steam and Oculus stores and offers a short look into the full game (as demos do). So get ready to face adaptive enemy AI, that include well-concealed snipers, air/group assaults, and traps, across four ‘photorealistic’ environments. The game also has a ‘Sniper Training Area’ that eliminates the ‘nausea and dizziness associated with VR games’ according to the developers, while still offering a fun experience.
The studio is also busy working on a mobile version of Sniper Rust will be different from the VR version. Everything from the level design, game-play modes, enemy AI, to the player’s arsenal will be different, offering a completely different experience. Though we’re still waiting on more info on this version via an official announcement.
So make sure to check out the demo of Sniper Rust VR, and if you like what you see then make a little mental note to get the game when it releases on 27 December.
