CI Games has at long last shared the very first look at their upcoming long-range shooter Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2. In the short teaser we get to see an insane sniper shot from over 1500 meters. It’s arguably to prepare prospect players for the long-range encounters that are inbound. Watch the teaser here!
The long-running sniper series by CI Games is going for a new round. The developer hasn’t shared a concrete release date yet but the ‘Coming Soon’ disclaimer has us hoping for a release before the end of the year.
Despite the ‘2’ in the name, Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 is actually the sixth entry in the franchise. Despite so many titles already out, the series always remained second fiddle in the niche sniping genre, with the Sniper Elite series being the undisputed kings.
Eliminate an array of targets from extreme long-range as contract sniper assassin.
Employ tactical decision making and stealth techniques to complete demanding challenges across 2 unique single-player campaigns.
Explore 5 distinct, extensive maps in the Middle East conflict zone.
Execute 24 new contracts and a range of side operations.
Master an expert sniping experience featuring an authentic wide selection of weapons and gear.
Revisit each contract with a different approach to complete all objectives and collect maximum rewards.
The developers did try to change up the formula by going full open-world with Ghost Warrior 3 but it proved too big a task for the small studio to pull off as intended. Things changed for the positive though with the first Contracts of last year. Generally positive reviews brought the shaky franchise back to its open-ended level-based structure.
Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 is picking up where the first Contracts left off by sticking to the level-based approach. Today’s teaser trailer spikes anticipation that these levels will be humongous. Set in the Middle East, Contracts 2 is offering extremely long-range sniping action for fans of the genre. Vast mountainous terrains, sparse urban landscapes, and virtually no greenery to obstruct the vision are the perfect scene for sniping.
Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 is slated to come out very soon for PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
