It feels like Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 has been in production for ages. Being first announced in late 2014, it was initially pegged to be released in 2016. Then, it was delayed until 2017. Now, it has an official launch date of April 25, 2017, for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. However, that is nothing new. The “new” aspect to Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is a trailer that was released by CI Games.
The trailer gave an accurate depiction on what players can expect in this upcoming open-world first-person shooting video game. Be warned, though, the content can be quite graphic at times. In many ways, it just shows off how badass Jon North (the main protagonist) is as he takes out a montage of enemies. He shows no favouritism to a specific type of kill either, as he is shown using stabbing methods, explosives, snipers, hand-to-hand combat, and even vehicles.
Being dubbed as the most complete sniping experience possible, Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 combines the themes of faith, brotherhood, and betrayal. As opposed to the other two entries in the franchise, players will not be stuck on a linear path. In addition, there are several side missions that can be completed to take a break from the main ones.
A cool implementation in Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is that the time of day will cycle, and each time will have direct implications on certain actions taken. In other words, decisions that could be made in the daylight, may not go as planned during nightfall. Players will also be able to customize their weapon inventory, as well as their vehicles and accessories. At the end of the day, there are three pillars of gameplay that can be utilized to the players choosing: Sniper, Ghost and Warrior.
Once again, as it is important to re-iterate this, the new trailer is very graphic and should not be viewed by younger audiences.
