What does excite me about this new campaign is that the focus is more on freedom and allowing you to move around tackling the mission as you see fit. As I have been playing through the game (review incoming) one of my biggest concerns was the ‘shooting gallery’ effect, this looks like it will address it and deliver a more rounded experience.
Now we just need more Multiplayer maps and a better lobby…press release after the break.

Single player DLC, Siberian Strike, will launch for Sniper: Ghost Warrior 2 this week.
SYDNEY, Australia — March 25, 2013 — CI Games, a fast-growing international publisher and developer of interactive entertainment, today announced its upcoming DLC.
