CI Games announced the next chapter in the Sniper Ghost Warrior franchise will be a more tailored experience compared to the previous open world title. Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts is set in the harsh Siberian wilderness where players will tackle contracts to take on specific targets in exchange for money. Missions will be open ended as each contract will have a main objective and a series of optional objectives that will provide extra cash at the end. The developers are emphasizing replayability as each mission has multiple approaches.
On the technical side, Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts will be using an upgraded version of the Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 engine. Since the release of 3, the engine has been heavily optimized to improve stability and FPS.
CI Games CEO Marek Tymiński had this to say about Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts:
“We were too ambitious in terms of the scope of Sniper Ghost Warrior 3, but we’ve learned from our missteps. Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts will be more focused on emergent 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 a 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 on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One in 2019.
