Zatun invites players to lock and load as it announces the release of its virtual reality sharpshooting game Sniper Rust VR for the HTC Vive.

Released last summer on Steam and the Oculus Store, a revamped version of Sniper Rust VR is now available, offering new content, improved visuals, enhanced gameplay, and additional support for leading VR headsets — making it one of the most immersive VR sniping games available! 

Today’s major content update for Sniper Rust VR features a multitude of enhancements and additions based on player feedback, starting with improved graphical fidelity as seen across the game’s globally-inspired levels and realistic weaponry.

Sniper Rust VR now also features a new cover mechanic so that players can avoid enemy fire in between shots. Weapons come to life like never before with the addition of enhanced recoil effects observable on-screen and felt through the Oculus Touch or HTC Vive controllers. Returning players will also enjoy the addition of a new bonus level featuring a new enemy type and weapon.

All-new achievements offer challenges for players to overcome with new skins to unlock as rewards. 

Key Features:

  • Cutting-Edge Weaponry - Stalk your prey with a plethora of lethal firearms, locked and loaded with special functions suited for specific occasions. Available weapons include real-world guns like the DSR-50 and SVD sniper rifle, as well as the MaC-7, which was inspired by the CheyTac M200, and the Scout Rifle-inspired DG-5000.
  • Death-Dealing Enemy Troops and Vehicular Combatants - Diverse enemy classes make every playable mission a challenge: be wary of well-concealed snipers, air/group assaults and traps behind enemy lines.
  • Immersive Virtual Reality Experience - With numerous uniquely designed environments to explore — including ports, forests, mountains, deserts and even ancient temples — you’ll feel like you’re truly part of Sniper Rust VR’s virtual world! Although with multiple, varied objectives to complete on your adventure, there’ll hardly be time to take in the sights.
  • A new bonus level – ready for a new challenge? New enemies lay in wait – and so does a new firearm for you to dispatch them with.
  • New cover mechanics – catch your breath and stay out of sight by ducking behind crates, barrels, and pallets. When the bullets stop, you go.
  • Gun recoil – every shot counts. Feel the power of your firearm each time you pull the trigger.
  • Updated graphics – see the environment come to life with a graphical overhaul and more realistic lighting and shadows.
  • Achievements – get recognized for your excellence with 10 new player achievements, and get rewarded with killer customization options: 2 new skins for each gun & 2 new gloves.
  • Action-Packed Soundtrack - Intense orchestral sounds composed by John Leonard French are the perfect accompaniment for the game’s thrilling, edge-of-your-seat action sequences.

Sniper Rust VR supports seated, standing, and room-scale VR and is playable using Oculus Rift, HTC Vive and Vive Pro, and FOVE VR headsets. It is now available for purchase for PC on Steam, Viveport, and the Oculus Store for $9.99. A free version with limited content offers access to a shooting gallery and part of the game’s campaign and is available to download from each respective storefront.
