Developed by console and mobile gaming veterans at EightPixelsSquare, SNIPER STRIKE: SPECIAL OPS brings console-quality storytelling and gameplay to mobile devices worldwide.

Gamers will experience one of the most advanced mobile gaming experiences to-date as they progress through the cinematic, single-player storyline that takes them on a globetrotting tour of exotic locations.

For gamers with a competitive streak, SNIPER STRIKE: SPECIAL OPS delivers fantastic, action-packed PvP multiplayer action, with live PvP Sniper Duels, where gamers race up the leaderboards as they face off against real opponents in a quest to become the world’s #1 sniper. Additionally, the game offers Arena Mode where players can challenge friends and foes around the globe in intense asynchronous PvP score challenges.

“At EightPixelsSquare, our roots are in big-budget console gaming, going back more than 20 years. But our passion is delivering that level of experience to mobile games,” said Hugh Binns, co-founder of EightPixelsSquare. “With SNIPER STRIKE: SPECIAL OPS, we have created a rich and compelling world backed by thoughtful and deep mechanics that we know will find a home with core gamers. We’re excited to watch as players worldwide experience for themselves the tense sniping action and fast-paced gunplay found throughout the single player and multiplayer modes”.

“Last year, we were thrilled to bring EightPixelsSquare into the Outplay Entertainment family and are beyond proud of what they’ve accomplished with SNIPER STRIKE: SPECIAL OPS”, said Douglas Hare, co-founder and CEO of EightPixelSquare’s parent company, Outplay Entertainment. “We know that gamers are looking for ways to take a high-intensity console experience with them on-the-go, in a way that makes sense on a smartphone. With SNIPER STRIKE: SPECIAL OPS, the team at EightPixelsSquare have created a game that’s beautiful, strategic, responsive – and most of all incredibly fun. We truly believe it raises the bar on how first person shooters can look and play on mobile devices”.

Outplay Entertainment acquired EightPixelsSquare in 2016, inspired by the veteran team of developers’ success in translating core gaming experiences to the smartphone screen. This is the first game released since the acquisition and offers a clear view of EightPixelsSquare’s capability and ambition.
