City Interactive has finally gotten the patch for Sniper: Ghost Warrior to Xbox 360 users. The tweaks made to the A.I. and camouflage systems have finally made sections of the game playable for me (the review is still in progress) and the indicator improvements on multiplayer radar will be much appreciated by online competitors. It's just too bad that anyone without a broadband connection won't be able to download the patch; meaning a neigh unplayable single player experience without it. Check the list below for all the "improvements" you broadband wielding Xbox 360 owners have access to.

Game A.I.
  • Hones camouflage system so players are less vulnerable to enemy sight when hidden in vegetation;
  • Adjusts enemies’ ability to see players at long distances;
  • Adjusts players’ posture and movement speed when spotted by enemies;
  • Improves AI behavior in combat situations;
  • Includes an improved stealth system.
Multiplayer
  • Adjusts duration of breath-holding ability;
  • Improved bullet ballistics for all weapons;
  • Indicators of the enemy locations on the radar have been improved.
Weapons
  • Adjusts melee attack strength;
  • Modifies damage, accuracy and range of AI weapons.
