Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 was recently given the demo treatment over on IGN. They showcase some of the new weapons, the safe house customization, as well as a brand new map in the game.
They explain that players take on the role of John North, and the mission showcased in the video takes place in Georgia. Players have a task in neutralizing targets, and the 15 minute mission where they take on a side quest to infiltrate a location. It’s revealed by Tomasz Pruski, the senior level designer at CI Games, that there are three maps in total and each one is approximately nine square kilometers, offering players plenty of play-space to move around in. Pruski states…
“In the grand scheme of things […] the maps are roughly nine square kilometers each. The playable spaces are slightly smaller, but there is a lot of real estate, and we have three maps like that in the game. They are separate environments; we wanted to do that to sort of make them more diverse [and] make them look and play and feel differently.”
You can check out the gameplay mission below.
The mission involves getting hands on the medical supplies without getting spotted. Players can use drones to scout the area, and there are multiple buildings to infiltrate and scour, as well as utilize the game’s new Sniper Mode that allows John, the main character, to see what objects within the environment.
One of the neat things that makes Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 stand out is that when sniping players will have to manually set the range on the scope before taking a shot.
Dynamic weather and time of day will also alter the visibility for NPCs and the player during a mission. They also reveal that depending on your play-style depends on the skill points you can earn at the end of each mission. The points will be determined based on your rating in three different categories. Said points can then be used in three different categories, the “Sniper” category for long-range kills, “Ghost” category for stealth, and the “Warrior” aspect for the players who like to mimic Rambo.
