The guys at CI Games have uploaded 24 minutes of gameplay footage taken from its Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 demo at E3, and there’s much more to it than just nailing headshots.
Like its balls-to-the-wall cousin Sniper Elite, Ghost Warrior is all about tactical espionage. In the footage, we see the player finding their way towards a well guarded Russian general with a view to taking him out.
As a US sniper (who else) you must destroy the Russian military hierarchy one well placed bullet at a time to protect NATO’s interests and generally make the world a less Russian place. Ooh Rah.
If you’re a fan of stealth and tact, then this may well be worth a look. Using drones and finding safe passages through minefields all looks suitably hairy, and there’s something pretty satisfying about traversing a map completely undetected.
Speaking of the map, each mission will be completely open world so there’s plenty of room to royally bugger it up and run away like a big girl. Throw in an enhanced crafting systems for weapons and gear and Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is starting to look pretty tasty. If you missed the first two Ghost Snipers (like I did) then 3 could be a pretty good place to get stuck in.
