Developer Zatun are bringing marksmanship into virtual reality (VR) with its upcoming title Sniper Rust VR, which is set to release on Steam at the end of this month after the series first saw success with Sniper 3D Rust on iOS and Android.
Sniper Rust VR is described as a globe-trotting VR adventure where the player takes the role of a sniper trying to put down an armed militia uprising across international borders.
Players will be tasked with putting their sniping skills to the test in a variety of environments inspired by locations around the world. Players will access access to a variety of weapons that are all pre-unlocked and available to choose from, so you can select your ideal armament.
Enemies come in multiple styles, so you can engage in a long-range duel with another sniper, or try and take down group assaults before they storm your position or even drop right on top of you in the case of air assaults. Danger can also be found in the traps that could await you when behind enemy lines. Watch out for enemies driving vehicles to make sure they don’t get away and alert others before you can take them out.
The soundtrack is a full orchestral arrangement composed by John Leonard French, so players can be sure of a suitably epic accompaniment to go along with the tense shoot-outs.
The story campaign is planned to be eighteen chapters long, and the developers have promised attention to detail for areas such as weapons and environments.
The title will be heading to Steam for the Oculus Rift on 31st May. There is a demo available now on Steam for free download, which includes one complete level ad access to the shooting range practice mode. Further information can be found on the Steam store page.
