CI Games has announced the next entry in its Sniper Ghost Warrior series: Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts.
This upcoming entry takes place in the Siberian wilderness and introduces the contracts system. This system moves away from Sniper Ghost Warrior 3‘s open-world by offering players a clear main objective with a fixed monetary reward on “dense, more focused maps.” Players can also complete secondary objectives for bonus payouts, or repeat missions for more money.
There are also multiplayer modes for players who prefer to player with others, but no details were offered.
“It is exciting to see the team really motivated and working hard on our next sniping game,” CI Games Chief Executive Officer, Marek Tymiński, said. “They don’t have to start from scratch this time and can now – on top of developing new content – spend way more time on improving things they already have.” This highlights CI Games’ commitment to listening to their community and iterating on their feedback.
“We were too ambitious in terms of the scope of Sniper Ghost Warrior 3, but we’ve learned from our missteps. 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.”
Fans will also be pleased to learn that Contracts features “a more optimized game engine” that will reduce load times and help maintain a stable frame rate.
Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts launches in 2019 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
