Today,  Zatun Game Studio has announced via press release new information regarding its upcoming project Sniper Rust VR.

According to the developer, Sniper Rust VR is slated to launch exclusively for the Oculus Rift via Steam and the Oculus Store on Thursday, May 31. Of course, if you want to give the game a test run before you throw down some cash, there is a demo now live on both platforms.

The Sniper Rust VR trial version includes one full level as well as access to the in-game shooting range mode. While it may feel minimal to some, this is more than enough content for players to not only get a feel for the game but also will help determine the whether or not they want to purchase the full version when it releases.

Sniper Rust VR is a virtual reality action shooter title developed and published by the previously mentioned game studio. In Sniper Rust VR, players control one of the best marksmen in the world as they embark on a global adventure all while proving their title as a skilled sharpshooter. Several notable features in Sniper Rust VR include eighteen levels scattered around the globe, access to cutting-edge and deadly firearms, and an impressive score composed by John Leonard.
