WARSAW, POLAND/NEW YORK, NY, May 11th, 2011– City Interactive, a fast-growing international publisher and developer of interactive entertainment, was celebrating today as the long-awaited PlayStation®3 version of its Sniper: Ghost Warrior title surged up the charts across all key European territories.
The PlayStation®3 version of Sniper: Ghost Warrior saw City Interactive make a number of key enhancements to the game over earlier versions, and has seen the game amass impressive sales all across Europe. The existing Xbox 360 and PC versions enjoyed sales of over one million units within just seven months, and City Interactive has seen the PlayStation®3 iteration perform strongly in Germany (#1), UK (#3), Switzerland (#2), France (#4) and Benelux (#3). The game has yet to release in the US, but City also predicts a strong presence there.
Sniper: Ghost Warrior is set on the fictitious South Amercian island of Isla Trueno, which is in turmoil following a military coup by the despotic General Vasquez. Vasquez and his mercenary army have taken control of the island, and the player is charged with joining forces with a group of covert commandos and infiltrating his base. However, whereas most first-person title focus on storming bases, Sniper: Ghost Warrior has won a legion of fans with its mix of stealth action and utterly realistic use of sniping.
City Interactive is now looking to build on the success of Sniper: Ghost Warrior with the unveiling of key new releases at this year’s E3 in Los Angeles (June 6 th-9 th), with further details to follow.
Sniper: Ghost Warrior for the PlayStation 3 system is available now. For review samples, please contact Steve Merrett at Voltage PR on 020 7502 4462 or email firstname.lastname@example.org . More information can be found online at http://www.sniperghostwarrior.com
About Sniper: Ghost Warrior
When the democratic government of Isla Trueno is overthrown, an aggressive and hostile military command rises to power.

In addition to intense sniper missions, players will also take part in a variety of assault scenarios where their prowess with weapons will be a huge help to the undermanned rebels.
