The Sniper Elite series received its first spin-off earlier this year in the form of Nazi Zombie Army, which developer Rebellion called a "gamble." However, that gamble certainly paid off, and now even more so as Nazi Zombie Army 2 has been announced. Rebellion expects the sequel to arrive before the end of the year on PCs, and potentially even the PS4 and Xbox One.
Nazi Zombie Army 2 once agains features OSS agent Karl Fairburne and three of his pals fighting off the zombie horde in Berlin. Just everything is getting bumped up a notch, with creative head Tim Jones stating:
We really wanted to heighten the demonic, nightmarish tones of the first game. The environments, the levels, the soundtrack all give a strong feeling of descent - each encounter, each level becoming progressively more hellish. Most importantly though, we've expanded the legions of Nazi undead with some really intimidating new enemies which we'll reveal soon.
More demonic, more disturbing, more enemies; what's not to like? Hopefully soon we'll get a good idea of just what Rebellion intends for NZA2, but it certainly isn't looking like something we want to miss. Right now it's just a PC game, but the developer is hoping to take advantage of the self-publish option on both the PS4 and Xbox One in order to get the game to more people. Rebellion isn't saying one way or the other on that route, just that it's a "possibility."
Sniper Elite: Nazi Zombie Army 2 isn't the only thing Rebellion is working on, as Sniper Elite 3 is due next year for the PC and current and next-gen consoles.
