Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is just a few months away from its April release, but that hasn’t stopped CI Games from shedding some light on the story and locations you’ll encounter, along with some of the characters you’ll meet.
The story follows Jon North, a Marine who sets out on both a professional and personal mission in the Republic of Georgia. Jon’s brother Robert was captured and presumed dead about two years prior to the events of the game, but reports of his appearance in Georgia are what fuel Jon’s personal objective.
Georgia is on the brink of civil war, and this is where Jon’s professional assignment comes into play. His Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC) mission finds him in the middle of a conflict zone where he and his team are tasked with neutralizing the Separatist Leaders who are thwarting any stability left in the country.
CI Games has also revealed a good amount of information detailing the characters you’ll meet, both in and out of Jon’s team.
Lydia Jorjadze is a mercenary who fought alongside Jon in Afghanistan. Described as an “expert marksman,” Lydia has her own set of unanswered questions she is looking to get resolved, including what happened when Jon disappeared from Afghanistan nearly three years ago. Just like Lydia, Raquel Shein agrees to join Jon on his mission in Georgia. Raquel is a MOSSAD agent who has his own goal of finding a rogue scientist who performed illegal scientific experiments.
Despite his supposed death, Robert North is also a key player in Sniper Ghost Warrior 3. While his brother Jon is described as a more by the books kind of marine, Robert tends to fall on the rebellious side of things.
Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is set to launch on Apr. 4, 2017 simultaneously on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. An open beta on Steam just opened up registrations and is scheduled to start on Feb. 3, 2017.
