10 Things You Need to Know About: Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2

  1. Built on the gorgeous Cry Engine 3 (Crysis series).
  2. Takes players to the Phillipines, Sarajevo & the Himalayas in a three-act story.
  3. Published and developed by City Interactive (Combat Wings, Terrorist Takedown)
  4. The game has been made with the co-operation of real snipers, who advised on the games’ sniping mechanics.
  5. Running in Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 heavily affects your ability to accurately get off an accurate shot, keeping the gameplay pace measured.
  6. The term “Sniper “ originated in the 1770s among soldiers in British-controlled India for hunters who could kill the elusive Snipe, a long billed marsh bird.
  7. The game is challenging yet accessible, with casual gameplay all the way to hardened experience with no aides (which was arguably the primary appeal of the first game).
  8. AI in Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 has been revamped to react based on their situation, e.g. large groups of enemies will act in a pack mentality, while soldiers by themselves will act with more caution.
  9. Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 gives players a spotter to help them be the best of the best by calling out the shots to take.
  10. Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 is on retail shelves tomorrow on PS3 and 360 for AUD$79.95 and PC for AUD$69.95.
