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.

2/10 first-person shooter Sniper: Ghost Warrior has sold over a million copies around the world, Polish developer City Interactive has announced.


It achieved the milestone within seven months of the game's official launch on PC and Xbox 360.


By way of comparison, Ninja Theory's excellent flop Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, which won an 8/10 from Eurogamer, only sold 460,000 copies.


"A lot of hard work and dedication by the entire City Interactive team went into the development of Sniper: Ghost Warrior, so we are understandably pleased about the worldwide success of the game," said Marek Tymiński, CEO of City Interactive.


"This success is the perfect backdrop to reveal details about some of the fantastic games that we currently have in our development pipeline, including the sequel to Sniper: Ghost Warrior and a couple of unannounced projects."


Lat month Eurogamer broke the news that a multiplatform sequel was in development.


City Interactive has been working on it since early 2010, and has licensed Crytek's CryEngine3 game engine – used to build upcoming shooter Crysis 2 - to help.


The first game is due out on PS3 early this year.

PlayStation 3 users will get to experience a buffed-up version of Sniper: Ghost Warrior early next year, developer City Interactive has confirmed.


The FPS will be getting updated visuals and plenty of new content. Expect new singleplayer missions, bonus multiplayer maps, new multiplayer modes and new weapons.


"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," CEO Marek Tyminski explained.


"With exclusive content and modes, we are eager to introduce the best sniper game on the market to PS3 owners sometime in Q1 next year."


It'll need all the extra bells and whistles it can get. The original Xbox 360 version was about as much fun as a vinegar eye bath.


City Interactive has not confirmed whether it intends to offer the new content to existing PC and Xbox 360 users.


Take a look at some new screens below.

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.

Sniper: Ghost Warrior developer City Interactive has licensed Crytek's CryENGINE3 for two new games.


The Polish developer offered no details as to what those games might be, but expect a release for both of them in the "next couple of years".


Sniper: Ghost Warrior, despite being not very good at all, has been quite the success story for the studio. Revenue for the first nine months of the year is up 230 per cent.


Carl Jones, director of CryENGINE global business development offered up a little insight as to why. "City has shown with the success of Sniper: Ghost Warrior that they understand what gamers want to play.


"CryENGINE3 and our dedicated, global support team will help them achieve their vision on more platforms, with the speed and high quality values that our engine and tools uniquely provide to developers."
