After several postponements in 2020, Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts II, the sequel to the adventures of the sniper Raven, developed by the Polish studio CI Games and published by Just for Games, finally has a release date. And to keep the aces of the trigger waiting, a new trailer makes the powder speak and gives us gameplay images.
The campaign, with twenty solo missions, leaves the steppes of Siberia. Taking advantage of the craze for sandbox-style maps, it is enriched by this mode offering to transport us this time to the heart of the Middle East.
Artificial intelligence, sharper than ever, promises a full-bodied challenge, but also great replayability, as the player will have all the freedom he wants in his approach.
Indeed, thanks to an arsenal provided and customizable at will, each player can compose his weaponry according to the approach tactic he wants to adopt. Bladed weapons for the melee approach, mini spy drones to visualize the typology and the enemies …
For this new opus, faithful to the series, it is the sniper rifle that will be the star of the weapons, allowing shots up to 1000 meters for a unique sniping simulation experience never reached for the license.
