Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 trailer emerges from cover

CI Games has unleashed the official Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 debut trailer for your consumption ahead of the game’s launch early next year. Check it out below.

This latest entry in the stealth-action franchise is the first to benefit from a AAA production effort, and is being powered by the CryEngine for PlayStation 4, PC, and Xbox One. 

Unlike earlier titles in the series, Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 will be set in an open-world packed with side missions in addition to the main story quests, and is built around three principles: target, execute, and survive. 

The addition of a large-scale environment affords players the chance to approach mission objectives in any manner they see fit, employing both stealth and aggressive tactics against enemies. 



Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 release date targets early 2017 launch

Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 will be released on January 27, 2017, and sees retired marine Jonathan North venturing to Georgia to prevent the outbreak of another Cold War amidst ongoing civil unrest in the region. 

In addition to the presence of an open-world to explore, CI Games has also injected a number of new gameplay additions into the mix, such as parkour navigation, a new Scout Mode, plus a dynamic weather and a day/night cycle.

Sniper Ghost Warrior launched in 2010 and took a battering by critics, something which didn’t seem to improve with the sequel three years later. Despite their critical mauling, the series proved to be a commercial success, selling 5.5 million copies to date.
