Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 puts you in the shoes – and the ghilliesuit – of Captain Cody 'Sandman' Anderson, ex-Delta Force Sniper, now working as a 'Private Security Consultant'. Raised in the tradition of patriotism and service to his country, his story is told in three acts – a mission in the present, taking out nuclear-armed terrorists in the Philippenes, a flashback to the past and his time in war-torn Sarajevo hunting down the war criminal Vladic, and a gripping conclusion in the mountains of Tibet. Offering a similar fun tone to a Hollywood action B-movie, learn just how these missions are connected. What is so important about Sandman's past?
This story is wrapped around some of the most authentic sniper gameplay seen so far. The world of Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 is one that is very much based on the real-world, with authentic locations and environments brought to life thanks to the CryENGINE 3. This is a visually stunning world, one filled with dense jungle foliage, gritty urban environments and blinding snowscapes.
A realistic world needs an arsenal of faithfully recreated weapons. Your six sniper rifles are joined by assault rifles heavy machine guns and more. Authentic ballistics take into account everything from location and distance from your target to wind speed and direction, and even elements like gravity and your breathing rate. pushing this even further is a new mechanic that takes into account how hard you squeeze the trigger, and the affect this has on the shot and recoil of your rifle.
Realistic sniper tactics come to the fore, too. Not only will you work with your spotter to get the job done, stealth is also key, with an on-screen map showing your enemies' location and field of vision, adding even more tension to an already intense experience. If you are spotted, upgrades to enemy AI mean that your enemies will react according to the circumstances they see you. Single foes will take to cover, small groups call for back-up, and larger groups will flank and advance in an attempt to take you out.
The gameplay of Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 goes even further, taking in every aspect of your mission as you take out multiple targets across your locations. The varied urban, jungle, mountain and trundra environments each present new and exciting challenges, mixing up stealth with action, and with new vehicle sections. Your equipment offers new gameplay options, too, using night-vision goggles and binoculars to locate and even tag your targets when visibility is limited.
With silent kills a must – you don't need your targets screaming and alerting the world to your presence – Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 rewards skillful snipes with brutal kill animations to show just how your hard work has paid off. A new bullet cam shows the most successfully executed kills, following the bullet's trajectory in slow motion from rifle to target. You can push your skills even further with more difficulty choices. Choose to customise elements like gravity, weights and balances and more, or dare to try the Extreme difficulty level where all assists are removed and elements like wind speed and direction have much more impact.
But it's not just about the campaign. Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 features new multiplayer modes designed for sniper-vs-sniper duels where you prove just how skilled you really are. Miss a shot or even move too quickly and your opponent's radar will 'hear' where you are, so you really have to be sure you have the shot!
