Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts Trailer Shows New Mechanics

Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts is gearing up for its release on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One later this month with a brand-new pre-launch trailer that briefly details some of the added features and mechanics.

Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts will include “never-before-seen sniping mechanics” that will reportedly influence how accurate and devastating you are as you comb through the game’s Siberian sandbox. You’ll take into consideration elevation, wind, and bullet-drop in your quest to line-up the perfect shot. The HUD, as displayed in the trailer below, highlights various estimations that will affect the shot you’re preparing to take.

Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts will also feature “a vast selection” of weapons, from snipers and assault rifles to pistols and other quick-use equipment. The game launches with “five large, unique maps” and 25 contracts to work your way through.

CI Games announced Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts in August 2018, pegging the first-person sniping simulation for a November 22 release on consoles and PC. Pre-ordering the game nets you some bonuses, such as two exclusive in-game weapons and an additional skin.

The last entry in the Sniper Ghost Warrior franchise was 2017’s Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3. The title received criticism for its barren open-world and general lack of sniping, with Richard Wakeling saying in his review, “Yet it falters whenever it veers away from its strengths, and the plethora of nagging glitches and technical problems are a persistent nuisance that make Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 difficult to recommend.”
