Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 Open Beta Coming

Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is well on its way to its spring release. But fans will be able to get a sneak peek into the action very soon. As developer CI Games reports, Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 will be in open beta on Steam, and registration begins Jan. 17, 2017.

According to a press release from CI Games and Evolve PR, players can register over at the official Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 website “to be given a chance to experience the beautiful open-world setting of the Republic of Georgia and get exclusive access to two single-player missions: Cut Off and Blockout.” The beta itself begins Feb. 3, 2016 just a couple weeks away from the registration period.

Marek Tyminski, the CEO of CI Games, is certainly happy to give fans the opportunity to experience the game early. “We can’t wait for fans of the Sniper Ghost Warrior series to get an early taste of what’s to come when the game releases on Apr. 4, 2017,” he said in the press statement. “Since this is a technical test, we encourage everyone to give us feedback of their experiences in the Steam forums. We hope they enjoy what they play!”

The two missions available are interesting enough. In Cut Off, the player infiltrates an enemy compound and repositions satellite dishes to intercept an enemy antenna signal. In Blockout, the player gets to target one of the protagonist’s hits on his Most Wanted list, which is compiled of “the names of war criminals” that the player “can neutralize to bring justice to the people of Georgia.” Blockout promises plenty of versatility, from storming the front to picking off targets with a sniper rifle.

Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 launches on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One simultaneously on Apr. 4, 2017. The open beta is currently relegated to Steam, which means only PC players can hop in. Check back as more news develops.
