Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts Sets Its Sights On A November 22 Release Date
Hold your breath.
Sniper Ghost Warrior will return in November, with the latest game in the series taking place across five regions within Siberia.
Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts will release on PC, PS4 and Xbox One on November 22, 2019. The news comes with a trailer, showing off a previously unseen area that you'll get to explore called Black Gold. The trailer shows off some of the upcoming sequel's stealthy gameplay, and a handful of new features added for this fourth game in the series.
Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts will feature a new 'Dynamic Reticle' system, which is designed so that players can better predict how their shot will go. We get a bit of a look at this in the trailer, with a trail indicating the path of the bullet when zoomed in. There are also Scout Drones in Contracts that players will be able to pilot, as well as an Augmented Reality Mask with integrated binoculars for stronger surveillance.
The game's name comes from its new 'contracts' system, whereby you'll talk to NPCs within each region who will give you your targets. There are 25 main contracts in the game, but there will be plenty of side objectives to complete as well.
The previous game in the series, Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3, was criticised for its sparse open world and general lack of sniping. In his 5/10 review, Richard Wakeling said that the game "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."
