CI Games announces Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts.

The next game in its acclaimed tactical shooter series: Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts is today announced by CI Games.
The title tales its genre-defining sniping gameplay to the harsh climates of the Siberian wilderness and introduces a brand-new way to play – the contracts system, which “delivers tense, mission-based scenarios with CI Games’ best sniping ever,” according to the announcement. The game features both single player and multiplayer modes.
Unlike the previous game, Contracts will bring back the mission-based structure, with an emphasis on player freedom. Each contract will task players with carrying out primary and secondary objectives, all within levels designed specifically for that contract. Monetary rewards will be given for completing objectives.
The last game in the series, Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 was rated 3/5.5 by IGN. It was criticised for its technical issues and a lack of replayability. “We were too ambitious in terms of the scope of Sniper Ghost Warrior 3, but we’ve learned from our missteps.” Said CI Games CEO Marek Tyminski.

“It is exciting to see the team really motivated and working hard on our next sniping game.”

He continued, “Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts will be more focused on emergent gameplay with an open-ended mission design that the team feels strong about, but it will not be set in an open world. It is going to be a more tactical, more condensed experience and the game will offer plenty of replayability, both on the single player campaign and on the multiplayer modes.”
The studio said that the game will use a “more optimized game engine” to minimize the load times and provide a stable FPS.
Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts is currently expected to roll out in 2019 for PC, PS4 and XBOX One.

Red Dead Redemption 2 trailer is finally out.

While we don’t know for sure whether Red Redemption 2 is going to make its way for PC, what we have now is a gameplay trailer.
The gameplay trailer is about six minutes long, and features everything from exploration to combat. It manifests the ‘living world’, which is not just any open world, but open and a living thing in and off itself, to be more interactive and detailed, combing actions, story-telling, and a huge world to explore either on horseback or foot.
Watch the trailer here.
The game has been set in back 1800’s in America, when the age of outlaws was ending and the modern world was taking its shape. The protagonist here is Arthur Morgan, and it’s up to the player to exhibit Arthur as a hero or villain in the game as every action here has a consequence.

“Your guns aren’t the only way to interact with your environment”

With Red Redemption 2, Rockstar claims several things like a living world, improvement of shooting and combating, each weapon getting unique characteristics with realistic reload and recoil and many more.
There’s a small glimpse of the slow-motion shooting aka the Dead Eye shooting system at the end of the trailer as well, but we’ll get more on that in future gameplay videos.
While we don’t know yet how much of the claims made by Rockstar is unerring and veracious, the game is set to release on October 26, 2018, for PS4 and XBOX ONE. So far.  Pre-order here.
