Sniper Elite NEWS: V2 Remastered for Nintendo Switch, new VR game and sequel revealed

Sniper Elite developer Rebellion has made a bucketload of big announcements about the series.

In a special development update video, Rebellion CEO Jason Kingsley unveiled four new Sniper Elite projects.

This includes Sniper Elite 5, a brand new Sniper Elite standalone VR game, as well as two games for Nintendo Switch.

It all begins with Sniper Elite V2 Remastered, which is coming to PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch in 2019.

“Fans can return to Berlin and revisit an epic campaign set in the final moments of World War 2,” reads a Rebellion post.

“Offering stunningly enhanced graphics, 4K resolution and HDR display, this is the visually definitive version of Sniper Elite V2.”

Beyond improved visuals and HDR support, Sniper Elite V2 Remastered will feature new playable characters and a photo mode.

The package will include all of the DLC content for the game, as well as expanded multiplayer support for 16 people.

Nintendo Switch owners will also be treated to Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition, which is coming to the platform in 2019.

“Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition is also coming to the Switch in 2019, offering intense sniping in soaring temperatures, all on the go,” Rebellion continues.

“This feature-complete experience includes all the additional content ever released for the game, and Switch-exclusive local wireless multiplayer and motion controls. Fans can look out for more details soon.”

Sniper Elite V2 Remastered and Sniper Elite 3 Ultimate Edition will be followed by a brand new VR experience.

Little is known about the Sniper Elite VR game, other than it is being developed by British studio Just Add Water.

The studio has previously worked on Oddworld, Lumo, Micro Machines and Gravity Crash.

The Sniper Elite virtual reality game will be unveiled in full later this year.

Fans face an even longer wait for fresh details and gameplay for Sniper Elite 5.

The next game in the Sniper Elite series will be unveiled in full in 2020.

Hopefully the remaining games will be showcased in full during this year’s E3 press conference.
