Here's a tricky question for a developer and publisher. You've got a hit FPS. You need another one. Most wars using modernish weapons have been taken by other devs and you really don't think Vietnam is all that. What do you do? Choose a recent conflict and hope people don't mind, after all, it's just a video game. So, here's a new trailer called ?SARAJEVO URBAN COMBAT" for City Interactive and Namco Bandai's Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2.
Yes indeedy, the Siege of Sarajevo between 1992 and 1996 did see a lot of sniping. A bit of background tells us that, "On April 6, 1992, Serb militants opened fire on thousands of peace demonstrators in Sarajevo, killing at least five and wounding 30. This began a siege that has been termed "the worst in Europe since the end of World War II"."
Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 will be available for PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC on August 21, 2012.
Now, let's forget all the unpleasantness and look at the trailer. Enjoy!
