The Sniper: Ghost Warrior games always offer a nice respite from the blockbuster spectacle of other first-person shooters out there. Whereas the likes of Call of Duty and Battlefield task you with thinking quickly, being a sniper is all about taking your time, going unnoticed and waiting patiently to pull off the perfect shot. Contracts 2 is the first in the series to launch on Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5, providing all-new locations for you to infiltrate.
This time your sniping journey takes you into the heart of the Middle East, playing as contract assassin Raven who must quietly and strategically take down a series of high-profile targets. Some contracts will require to take shots as far away as 1000m, meaning you’ll need to account for wind and time, as well as distance. It’s the most challenging and feature-complete franchise entry yet.
Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 looks and plays great on both console generations, but those playing on next-gen platforms will enjoy improved graphical fidelity. Toppling an enemy crime syndicate is simply presented more clearly. This combines with the franchise’s much-beloved hyperrealism to create a truly lifelike sniper experience.
The Middle East is a big place, as you might imagine. It’s so big, in fact, that Raven’s 21 contracts are set to take place across five distinct maps. All of these you’ll be dropped into while seeking your targets, letting you learn their terrain and set up at the most promising sniping point. The single-player campaign features a playground of locations perfect for making tricking decisions.
Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 takes full advantage of next-gen hardware, boosting the framerate and visuals to render kills in more detail and realistically than ever before. You’ll notice this whenever the game triggers its cinematic bullet cam, bringing you closer to this highly detailed environment while delivering the same slow-paced shooting action players love.
