Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army, Rebellion Developments' undead-focused spinoff of its Sniper Elite series, is headed to consoles, creative director Jason Kingsley announced today.
"We can't say much yet, but it won't just be a re-package of the first two games," creative director Jason Kingsley said, "there will be plenty of new content to get stuck into."
Though Rebellion hasn't detailed the upcoming game or its platforms, the studio appeared among the long list of developers that joined Microsoft's ID@Xbox indie-focused publishing program yesterday. The British developer also appeared among Sony's revised list of European PlayStation 4 developers and publishers last year.
"Like many independent developers, we’re still learning the ropes and having a lot of conversations with the platform holders," he said. "We’re not at the stage where we can confirm the platforms right now, but we’re fortunate to have experience already from self-publishing on Steam and mobile, so we’re confident it’ll go smoothly."
The series, which Rebellion also revealed has sold more than 500,000 copies, made its debut on Windows PC last February. Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army is available now on Steam for $3.74, a 75 percent discount off its normal $14.99 price until March 3. Its sequel, which you can see in the video above, is also available at the same price until the same date. You can buy both as a bundle for $6.25 through the Rebellion store.
Sniper Elite 3, the next entry in the series that spawned the Nazi zombies, is headed to Windows PC and consoles this year. For more on the game and the enhancements like improved stealth headed to the series, be sure to read our hands-on impressions.
