Rebellion’s Sniper Elite VR (2021) has offered up some satisfying sniping with a bevy of comfort and gameplay options to boot. Now the studio is dialing in even further with a new update for Quest, PSVR, PC VR that promises more customization to the sniping experience.
Outside of four difficulty levels, you also be able to toggle settings in a new custom difficulty mode which lets you mix and match things like aim assist, bullet drop, and wind effects.
Vignette effects have also gotten a facelift, with multiple new vignette options added to things like teleportation, sprinting, and kill cams. You can turn them off entirely, or selectively turn up or down the intensity of the sprinting vignette depending on your comfort level with artificial locomotion.
If you have shaky hands, or want a weightier feel to weapons, Rebellion is also bringing variable motion smoothing to hand movements in the new update. Check out those features and more in the video below:
