CI Games has released an in-engine teaser trailer and first screenshots for Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2.
The trailer sets the stage for what CI Games describes as “one of the most important gameplay changes” in the sequel: “extreme long-range sniping.” Teasing a kill shot taken 1,506 meters away, CI Games promises to support long-rang shooting with “more accurate weapons, heightened realism, and enhanced visuals.”
“The Sniper community really enjoyed the changes we made with Contracts and the sniper’s paradise sandboxes but, based on their feedback, we designed the latest game with very long-range shots in mind,” said CI Games CEO Marek Tyminski in a press release. “We hope to continue building on the best sniping gameplay around and make significant steps forward in bringing modern, realistic sniping experience to consoles and PC. Our team is really excited to introduce the extreme range campaign in Contracts 2.”
Here is an overview of the game’s new long-range maps, via CI Games:
The first Contracts was well-received and re-established the Sniper Ghost Warrior formula with the best-in-class shooting set within open-world sandboxes. Contracts 2 takes these sniper’s paradises to the next level with challenging long-range maps set in the game’s new modern setting. In addition to the core contracts, these campaigns are hand-crafted to provide engaging and robust gameplay over extreme distances. These maps will challenge even the most skilled snipers as players complete complex challenges undetected from over a kilometer away.
Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 features a more grounded and relevant experience set in modern day 2021 Middle East. As Reaper, a sniper on a mission, players can take advantage of new weapons and gear to take down more intelligent enemies across new, expansive maps.
Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 is due out for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC via Steam this winter.
