Budget shooter sets its sights on retail
City Interactive has deployed the launch trailer for Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2, the latest entry in its surprisingly solid long-range shooter series. The footage itself sets up the plot, while simultaneously showing off plenty of gruesome kills. Are you excited for the CryEngine-powered sequel, or does it look...
City Interactive’s oft-delayed first-person shooter Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 finally has a firm release date of 12th March. The title has been pushed back a number of times over the past six months, but the studio ensures that on this occasion it's staying put. Indeed, in order to celebrate the announcement, it's released a brand new...
It looks like those extra months in the oven have been kind to City Interactive’s upcoming stealth shooter Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2. The former budget release looks every inch the blockbuster in this brand new gameplay teaser, which shows off the title’s stunning visuals. Sure, the gameplay appears to be a direct duplicate of that...
For a game all about precision, Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 really is a rubbish shot. The shooter, which was originally due out in August, was pushed back until October earlier this month. But now it won’t see the light of day until January 15th 2013, distributor Namco Bandai has announced. UK marketing and PR director Lee Kirton...
Out of range
Developer City Interactive must have got nervous before it pulled the trigger on Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2, as it has pushed back the title’s European release date by several weeks. The game will now don its ghillie suit on 9th October, a substantial delay on its original 31st August launch target. No reason was given for the change...
Big box experience
Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2’s collector’s edition may look miniscule compared to Borderlands 2’s war chest, but it’s packing some interesting treats for fans of the shooter. The premium bundle includes a steelbook copy of the game, a “Sniper Tactics and History” hardback book, an artbook, a CD soundtrack and a bunch of...
City Interactive’s attached a 21st August release date to its scoped first-person shooter Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2. The original title proved a massive success on PS3 due to its low price-point and decent gunplay. Ghost Warrior 2 hopes to better its predecessor by implementing CryEngine 3 support, enhanced AI and “unprecedented” bullet...
Another sci-fi shooter
You know what this industry always needed: another sci-fi themed first-person shooter. Of course, we’re being facetious, but that’s not stopped Sniper: Ghost Warrior developer City Interactive from announcing Alien Fear for the PlayStation Network. The downloadable FPS will be powered by Unreal Engine 3, and will have an...
According to the Polish arm of Forbes, City Interactive has pushed back Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 into the second quarter of 2012
The translation of the original story is sketchy, but the article seems to insinuate that the developer is looking to add an additional layer of polish to the game and firm up the title's marketing plans. Sounds like a good enough reason to delay the game to us.
Stuart Black made PlayStation 2 gun-porn shooter, err, Black for PlayStation 2
Since then he's made a name for himself making bombastic shooters. For a while the developer pitched Codemasters' rubbish Bodycount as a spiritual successor to Black inspired by a Lady GaGa concert he attended. Then he promptly left the development team before things turned sour. But now he's back with City Interactive's..
Watch your six!
After the perfectly passable Air Conflicts: Secret Wars, Move owners are in for some more aerial dogfighting action next year when Combat Wings: The Great Battles of WWII lands on PS3. City Interactive just announced the game will see the light of day in North America on 7th February before reaching Europe just a few days later on...
We sense a pattern
You wait ages for one PlayStation Move aerial dogfighting game based on the Second World War, then another one pops up just after. Typical. After the not-bad Air Conflicts: Secret Wars comes City Interactive's Combat Wings: The Great Battles of WWII, a game aiming for an arcade-style experience with emphasis on action as well as...
We recently played City Interactive's Sniper: Ghost Warrior and thoroughly enjoyed the experience for what it was -- cheap, digestable and fun
As such, we're actually really excited for Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2. The sequel is set to use Crytek's CryEngine 3 technology, which should give the original's slightly shoddy visuals a real kick up the bum. If this first screenshot is indicative of the..
Sniper: Ghost Warrior only just released on the PlayStation 3, but City Interactive's already busy beavering away on a sequel to the surprise hit
The game's set to utilise Crytek's CryEngine 3 and is promising "graphically stunning" missions, alongside refined gameplay and plenty of sniping. Details are predictably scarce right now, but City Interactive's promising a big blow-out at this..
Not only are City Interactive promising that Sniper: Ghost Warrior on the PlayStation 3 will fix many of the issues players had with the PC and XBOX 360 versions, but they are also offering a bunch of exclusive levels, missions and content
Check out the trailer embedded above to get a glimpse of what's in store. S'out next month.
Sniper: Ghost Warrior was a success when it released on XBOX 360 and PC last year
The imperfect title proved that there's a market for "budget" games, spending a number of months hovering around the UK's top 40 all-formats chart. With such success, it seemed inevitable that developers City Interactive would announce a sequel. That news has come today courtesy of Eurogamer.se. Apparently..
Sniper: Ghost Warrior's been popping up in the UK charts for months now
It's surprising because outside of the sales reports, we've never heard of the game. Apparently the budget title's been a big success on the XBOX 360, so big in fact that it's coming to the PlayStation 3 next year. The port will include all the updates (and presumably DLC) from the XBOX 360 version, plus a few bonus additions..
