Delayed at launch, the PS5 version of Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 is finally out today.
All other versions of Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 launched back in June, but the PS5 version had to be held back. If you’ve been waiting to play it on Sony’s next-gen console, however, your wait is now over.
Released today as an “Elite Edition”, the PS5 version promises a 4K resolution, updated textures and visuals and DualSense implementation. The controller’s adaptive triggers allow each weapon to feel unique and more immersive; particularly important on getting those 1,000 metre-long sniper shots just right. It also sports faster loading times thanks to the PS5’s SSD.
In terms of additional content, the PS5 version of Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 comes with Crossbow Carnage weapons pack DLC, which adds a Crossbow, 550 TRV Sniper Rifle, Mad Sheriff 9 Revolver, Car K8 Assault Rifle and Zebra skin into the game. The recently-released expansion, Butcher’s Banquet, is also included. It gives players an all-new area to explore and a new threat to take out.
We reviewed the PS4 version of the game, and here’s what we had to say:
“On the whole, Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 is an accomplished sequel. It builds meaningfully on the first game, expanding the scope of its gameplay while also being more accessible to newcomers. It remains great fun visiting one of the classic regions and figuring out the best ways to complete its available contracts, while the new long-range contract regions complement them very well, offering a different type of sniping challenge. Better yet, despite being released at a budget price, it has the look and feel of a AAA game. Needless to say, if you’re keen to do some armchair sniping, Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts 2 deserves to be in your game collection.”
If you own Sniper Ghost Warriors Contracts 2 on PS4 and own a PS5 console, you’ll be entitled to a free upgrade. Alternatively, you can purchase it digitally and physically, priced at £34.99. There’s a brand new trailer, too, which you can watch below.
