Years of training. Months of planning. Days of waiting. Once the target is located, it only takes a second of action to complete the mission. "Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2" places players back behind the scope as a sniper on a mission. The developers have been hard at work on creating a truly engaging experience.
The biggest improvement to "Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2" by far is the game engine that should be familiar to anyone that has played "Crysis 3." Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 was built using Cry Engine 3. The team at City Interactive worked closely with the team over at Crytek to develop the game. This cooperation allowed the developers of "Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2" to improve upon the gameplay and the A.I. within the game.
The developers focused on stealth gameplay and sniping to create a more authentic and thrilling experience. The sniper mechanics have been have been refined and the player must take into consideration all the factors that go into taking one single shot. From the type of bullet used to the direction of the wind, players will have to think like a true sniper. The improvements in gameplay are not only in the game, but City Interactive seeks to change the way you play shooters. To pull off a smooth and precise shot, players must control how hard they press the trigger on the controller. Players must remain calm during the tense moments of gameplay, driving home the sniper experience.
The use of the Crytek 3 engine has also allowed the A.I. in "Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2" to become a more responsive and deadly adversary. The A.I. in the game will move cover to cover during combat and even respond to the discovery of bodies by taking cover and seeking out the player to eliminate him. City Interactive has also focused on how the sniper will approach taking out their enemies. Enemies will respond differently to how and where you shoot them. While the goal may be finding that one perfect shot, finding cover is the priority. Staying hidden is important in "Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2." As you increase the difficulty in the game, the A.I. will begin to search for and seek out the sniper.
"Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2" is shaping up to be an impressive shooter. From the use of Cry Engine 3 to the cooperation from Crytek, City Interactive has clearly learned from the last game and has a focused outlook on how to make the sequel better. From refined sniper mechanics to realistic A.I., "Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2" clearly has success in its sights.
