First Open-World Game in the Series
Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 will feature an open-world environment unlike its predecessors and will have a less linear story. Players can freely explore the world and do different activities and side-missions known as “war crimes.”
Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 will take place in a modern-day setting where three hostile factions are in conflict. At the same time, a proxy and civil war is happening in Georgia. Players have to take control of Jonathan “Jon” North, an American Marine Captain who was sent to Georgia to find and eliminate its intruder.
Jon has to fulfill his mission to prevent another Cold War from happening. He shares a dark past with the intruder as they go way back.
Sniper Rifles & Drones
The game focuses on three things: target, execute, and survive. Players can choose whichever approach they want in finishing missions. So long as they fulfill the given task, they could either utilize stealth or with the gun and run style.
Players are provided with different weapons and gadgets they could use in doing missions. Sniper Rifles are one of the main weapons that can be used in taking down enemies from afar.
The accuracy of Sniper Rifles depend on the calibration of the rifle’s scope, weather, wind speed, distance, gravity, and the protagonist’s breathing strength and rate. The game will not show the objectives on the map, instead, they have to find them through intel-gathering missions.
They can also use a drone, one of the newest features in the game. Drones are good for scanning and surveying the environment, detecting enemies, hacking equipment and weapons, and creating distractions.
