Sniper: Ghost Warrior has sold two million copies, Polish game company City Interactive has announced.


The first-person shooter went on sale in June 2010 on PC and Xbox 360. A PlayStation 3 version launched a year later.


"We are all very happy that we have reached the two million units milestone," City Interactive boss Marek Tymiński said.


"This builds a strong belief we can do even better with the sequel and other upcoming releases."


Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2, built using Crytek's game engine CryEngine 3, is due out in 2012.


City Interactive announced Sniper had sold one million copies in February 2011 - seven months after it launched.

title="Permanent Link to Steam Autumn Sale continues: Total War, LA Noire, VVVVVV, Fallout: New Vegas super cheap">Total War totally on sale



What's this, every Total War title except Shogun and Shogun 2, with all accompanying DLC for just £8.74 / $12.49? What are you doing to us, Steam sale? I was planning to eat, and perhaps sleep this weekend but NO, you have to throw hundreds of hours of world class strategy gaming at me for a price that my buying finger can't not click on.



Wait, there's more? Gravity mangling platformer VVVVVV, for just 99p / $1.24? That's less than I paid for my cup of coffee this morning. The slick shouting-at-people-until-they-crack simulator LA Noire, which has only been out for two minutes, is half price. And Fallout: New Vegas and all its DLC packs are available at prices that make the upcoming Ultimate Edition seem a little redundant.



Also on sale today:



Red Orchestra series

Operation Flashpoint franchise

RIFT

Sniper: Ghost Warrior

The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition

Roller Coaster Tycoon 3: Platinum

Two Worlds franchise



 

The deals will change around again in six hours time, so keep an eye on the Steam front page. The Autumn sale will wrap up on Sunday, giving us some time to play everything we've bought before the big Christmas sale kicks off.

The Latest Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 Screens Have Nowhere to Hide Don't look at me, I'm just as bewildered as many of you are that Sniper: Ghost Warrior did well enough to score a sequel. Perhaps it had something to do with the sexy scenery City Interactive is showing off in the sequel's screenshots.



While I'm a huge proponent for sniping early and often, I just couldn't get into the original Sniper: Ghost Warrior. I generally prefer a game where I get the odd chance to show off my long-range projectile firing skills. Maybe the game was just too much of a good thing?



Either way, even more of a good thing is coming to the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and PC in early 2012.

Become the bane of enemy soldiers who can't quite take cover properly in Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2. City Interactive will bring their CryEngine 3 powered sniper sim to PC next March. It'll hit Europe on March 16, and the US on March 20. The in-game footage above is taken from Sniper's Gamescom showing, and feels a lot like Call of Duty 4's Chernobyl level, in which you spend a lot of time dressed as a bush, being told what to do by another man dressed as a bush. But imitating greenery is the second most exciting thing about being a sniper. The first is the feeling of god-like power as you hover your sights over a distant, unaware foe. Expect plenty of that come March 2012.
