  • Bonus multiplayer maps;
  • Exclusive new multiplayer modes including Capture the Flag and Hard Core difficulty mode
  • Exclusive new sniper rifles including the L96 and the M200 Intervention
  • Bonus single-player challenge: Additional mission with Hard Core mode to challenge the very best players.

Marek Tyminski, CEO of City Interactive said:

“Sniper: Ghost Warrior was our most ambitious project to date and although it was extremely well-received by players, we wanted to ensure that the PS3TM version took the franchise to a higher level. With exclusive content and modes, we are eager to introduce the best sniper game on the market to PS3TM owners sometime in Q1 next year.”

Sniper Ghost Warrior is a 16-stage action title set on the fictitious South American island of Isla Trueno, where a military regime lead by General Vasquez has “overthrown its democratic government to seize control.” Taking control one of the individuals within a group of covert commandos, the player is charged with infiltrating the rebel stronghold and overthrowing the unelected powerbase. Gameplay features include “fall-off of the bullet’s trajectory” as well as taking environmental factors into account such as wind direction. Interestingly, players also manage the breathing of their sniper to provide a more accurate shot.
