It´s been a bit of a mixed bag recently concerning DLC for Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2
. First, we had the announcement of free DLC
for the title, and then only yesterday we had an announcement that a separate DLC pack had been cancelled
Happily today, we can report some good news again with the announcement of yet another DLC expansion being readied for the game. The new single player expansion pack entitled ¨Siberian Strike¨ puts the player in a remote location somewhere in Siberia and aims to give them a more open-world experience for solving missions. Players will not be guided and will have to make their own way using only the map.
According to the official announcement, we can also expect the following from the new content:
In the remote abandoned Siberian city of Birsovik, the Russian government established a top secret military installation focused on arms R&D. American intelligence gets word that the facility shifted its focus recently to weapons of mass destruction. A CIA operative, M. Diaz is sent in undercover, posing as lab personnel, to uncover the truth. When he stops sending in reports, a search mission is quickly put together.
The player steps in the shoes of Cole “Sandman” Anderson, a veteran special ops sniper, now in the ranks of Task 121 – a group put together to counter any WMD-hungry warlord’s whim in the Asia – Pacific region. Anderson is ordered to locate Diaz’s GPS signal and assess the situation on the ground, then extract any intelligence he may have found.
To give a visual impression of what this will look like in-game, we also have a number of official screenshots.
The ¨Siberian Strike¨ DLC will be available on March 27th from the XLBA Marketplace and will cost 800MP.
