Things have been pretty quiet lately in the City Interactive camp, since the announcement over the summer that Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 would be delayed to January of 2013. It looks like that silence is now broken, however, as the team has released the very first gameplay trailer for the game.
We've seen some cinematic trailers for the game prior to this, but in today's video we are pretty much just looking at raw gameplay. Clips appear to have been captured directly from the game and simply spliced together in a teaser montage. Nothing in the trailer looks to be computer generated or anything other than actual gameplay. This is very promising, because you might have noticed that Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 is beautiful.
City Interactive is making the most out of CryEngine 3 and it shows in these gameplay clips. The environments, the characters, the weapon mechanics and the ballistics are some of the best we've seen.
Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 is due to hit shelves on January 15th, 2013 on Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC. Check it out at http://www.sniperghostwarrior.com/.
