'Sniper: Ghost Warrior' (ALL) Title Update Improves A.I., MultiPlayer And More

Based on the covert, shadowy world of the military sniper, Sniper: Ghost Warrior throws players into the chaos of a military coup, as they aid the rebels in restoring the rightful government to the embattled country of Isla Trueno.

When the democratic government of Isla Trueno is overthrown, an aggressive and hostile military command rises to power.  A highly trained special ops unit is sent in to help the rebels accomplish objectives that only a sniper can handle.  In addition to intense sniper missions, players will also take part in a variety of assault scenarios where their prowess with weapons will be a huge help to the undermanned rebels.

Key Features: 

  • Top of the line ballistic system that accounts for environmental effects like wind and gravity.  Track the bullet “trace” as it cuts through the air towards the target.  Modern snipers and their spotters rely upon this “trace” to make adjustments.
  • Non-linear gameplay allows players to decide how they wish to approach a situation. Challenges may be completed in several different sequences, giving players the freedom to explore.
  • Variety of mission types from long-range sniping and close quarter combat, to booby-trapping and infiltration.

Among the improvements to the game are upgraded A.I. behavior, increased functionality for camouflage system, improved multiplayer experience and an enhanced real-time stealth system.

“We are pleased to deliver the Xbox 360 patch for Sniper: Ghost Warrior and give gamers the most realistic sniper video game experience to date,” said Marek Tymiński, CEO of City Interactive.  “These improvements to Sniper: Ghost Warrior speak to our commitment to the game’s loyal community of fans, and assures future audiences of the production standard City Interactive adheres to.”
