Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts is the fourth entry in the Sniper: Ghost Warrior series developed by Polish company CI Games. This time, the players are taken to Siberia, where they must eliminate marked targets.
Similarly to the previous entries in the series, Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts lacks fast-paced action typical for classic first-person shooters. The players assume the role of the titular sniper and they enter the enemy territory with the task of killing specific targets. The protagonist isn’t a typical commando that can single-handedly kill hordes of enemies. Because of that, avoiding detection by sneaking past enemies or by eliminating them silently is of key importance.
Contrary to Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3, the game lacks an open world. The developers focused on a more limited, compressed experience. Instead of a sandbox exploration, the game features closed missions with pre-determined targets. However, more freedom was given when it comes to the missions themselves – they can be completed by using various methods. Environmental dangers that can threaten the infiltration are a novelty as well.
Contract system is an important novelty. The players are awarded a specific amount of cash for completing missions, but they can also complete side objectives and receive a bonus. Each contract can be completed many times. This enables the players to earn more cash and to try different approaches to completing missions.
Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts features both singleplayer campaign and multiplayer mode.
The developers of Sniper: Ghost Warrior Contracts haven’t implemented any revolutionary changes to the visuals of the game when compared to Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3. Instead, they focused on improving the performance of the game, including shortening the loading times.
