Sniper Elite 3, the upcoming World War II-era shooter from Rebellion Entertainment, will allow gamers to target TV broadcast and former games critic, Charlie Brooker.
The snipe-’em-up features a stage designed around Brooker’s in-game cameo, specifically tailored to his “dark sense of humor.”
Said Jason Kingsley, Founder of Rebellion: “You can buy endorsement all you want, but gamers can tell the difference between a genuine fan and a celeb that is happy to get a payday.
"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'. 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 has its sights set on a June 27 release for PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.
