Charlie Brooker to guest in Sniper Elite 3
Rebellion has announced that Sniper Elite celebrity super-fan Charlie Brooker is to make a guest appearance in Sniper Elite 3.
Brooker has been a big fan of the series and especially the previous game Sniper Elite V2 which has won numerous awards for its particular brand of sniping action.
“At one stage it seemed like Charlie mentioned Sniper Elite every few weeks in his Guardian columns and we’re incredibly grateful for his support, so this seemed like the perfect way to say ‘thanks’,” he went on. “It was also a great opportunity to reward our team who have worked so hard to get the game ready for its launch in June and we really appreciate Charlie championing a British-made game series. We had a fun time doing his motion capture scenes and in return have promised to give him one of the first copies of the game in June so he can shoot his character with a sniper rifle to his heart’s content.”
Sniper Elite 3 will be released on PS4, PS3, Xbox One and Xbox 360 on June 27th in Europe and the UK and July 1st in North America. The PC version will launch digitally on June 27th as well.
