City Interactive has just revealed that Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2, the sequel to City Interactive’s 2010 bestseller, will be released on March 16th in Europe, and March 20th in the US. The new game will be released for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Window PC and uses the highly-regarded CRYengine3, a state-of-the-art development tool that adds an unprecedented level of depth and realism to the title.
The Crytek-developed engine allows for greater levels of details in the game, while the development team has added a wealth of gameplay additions. Thus, as the player picks their way through the war zone locations, they now have access to weapons with differing ranges, thermal vision and advanced spotter cooperation with your colleagues.
Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 takes all the breathless anticipation, precise controls and skillful fun of sniping and mixes it with stealth and silent elimination play, action scenes and a co-operative move playbook. The game will also feature night vision and thermo vision goggles to use in limited visibility situations, vehicle sections, as well as multiple and varied locations including urban, jungle, mountain and tundra environments.

While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the "The Evolution of PC graphics cards."
