CI Games has announced the latest entry in the Sniper franchise called Sniper: Ghost Warriors Contracts. The studio revealed that the game will take the series into a “new direction” and will introduce new gameplay mechanics that “delivers tense, mission-based scenarios with CI Games’ best sniping ever.”
Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts will include optional secondary objectives that players can pursue in single-player mode. Completing secondary objectives will reward players with more bonuses. Moreover, the ability to re-play an accomplished contact gives players the ability to adjust their strategies and approach the mission in an entirely different way.
In a statement by CI Games CEO Marek Tyminski, it was revealed that the studio was “too ambitious” with the scope of Sniper Ghost Warrior 3, which resulted to criticisms about numerous issues encountered by players. This time around, the studio is aiming to provide focused gameplay that would offer tons of replayability options.
“Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts will be more focused on emergency gameplay with an open-ended mission design that the team feels strong about, but it will not be set in an open world. It is going to be more tactical, more condensed experience and the game will offer plenty of replayability, both on the single-player campaign and on the multiplayer modes.”
Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts is set to launch sometime in 2019 for the PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One.
