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.

Sniper: Ghost Warrior Aims for the PlayStation 3 in June After a relatively successful run on the PC and Xbox 360 last year, City Interactive's Sniper: Ghost Warrior hits the PS3 on June 28 with improved graphics and gameplay, exclusive missions, and new multiplayer modes. Camping is highly recommended.

Sniper: Ghost Warrior Gets Prettied Up For The PlayStation 3 City Interactive brings the head exploding fun of Sniper: Ghost Warrior to the PlayStation 3 next year, with updated graphics and plenty of exclusive content for Sony sniping fans.



Sniper: Ghost Warrior saw mostly mediocre reviews, but people bought it anyway because it's a game dedicated to one of the gaming world's most enjoyable pastimes: Blowing holes in people from far away. City Interactive calls the Xbox 360 and PC launch of the game successful. Apparently did well enough to warrant a PlayStation 3 release as well.



But City Interactive isn't just porting the game to the PlayStation 3. They're updating the title with plenty of new content to go along with the "fully upgraded gameplay and graphics."



PS3 players will score exclusive single-player missions, bonus multiplayer maps, and exclusive new sniper rifles, including the L96 and M200 Intervention.



Sniper rifles have such lovely names.



On top of that, there'll also be new multiplayer modes (including Capture the Flag) and a Hard Core difficulty mode that will put players' sniping skills to the ultimate test.



"Sniper: Ghost Warrior was our most ambitious project to date and although it was extremely well-received by players, we wanted to ensure that the PS3TM version took the franchise to a higher level," said Marek Tyminski, CEO of City Interactive. "With exclusive content and modes, we are eager to introduce the best sniper game on the market to PS3TM owners sometime in Q1 next year."



It certainly looks better. Here's hoping it plays better too.
