Sniper Elite VR | Tuesday 13 July Patch Notes

July 13th 2021

Snipers, we continue to make our way through a number of issues raised by the Community over the last few days. Our latest Patch which is now live, addresses Oculus Quest specifically with the full patch notes listed below.

Full Quest Patch Notes:

  • Oculus have confirmed that they suffered an outage that affected all new installs from the store. This blocked some players from being able to install Sniper Elite VR following purchase. This should now be rectified.
