City Interactive has released footage from its first game for the 360, Sniper: Ghost Warrior. The game puts players into the shoes of a sniper aiding rebels in restoring the government of the country of Isla Trueno. Sniper: Ghost Warrior shows gamers the ins and outs of being a military sniper. Learn to handle different situations that the elite military personnel face on any given mission.
“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.”
Some of the features that will make the game as realistic as it gets includes:
•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 infiltration.
Sniper: Ghost Warrior will be released later this year for the Xbox 360 and PC. DualShockers will release additional info on Sniper: Ghost Warrior as it becomes available.
