City Interactive Announces
Sniper: Ghost Warrior
New Sniping Game Hits Next
Quarter for Xbox 360 and PC
Announcing its first-ever video game
for the Xbox 360, City Interactive today revealed Sniper: Ghost Warrior. 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.
"With all-new programming airing
nationally on the History Channel and the Military Channel regarding the
training of snipers and their missions, interest in the art of sniping has never
been greater," said Lisa Rivera, vice president of Sales for City Interactive.
"Sniper: Ghost Warrior puts players into the ghillie suit of a sniper as they
attempt to accomplish a wide array of sniping and assault missions."
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.
Visually gripping with numerous
scenarios that include jungle and urban environments, Sniper: Ghost Warrior has
several 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
Sniper: Ghost Warrior is scheduled
to ship in Q2 for Xbox 360 and PC.
