Every bullet counts in Sniper Ghost Warrior 3

Sniper 3

Sniper Ghost Warrior 2 was an ok game. Competent, but not exactly exciting or tense. It was the kind of game that had a very specific audience in its crosshairs. Well clearly, that audience was large enough to justify a sequel, which I still think looks leagues better than previous efforts.

There aren’t exactly too many dedicated sniper games out on the market, with the only real competition  out there being Rebellion’s massive experiment in seeing how far it can take horrific dismemberment and penetration in their Sniper Elite series.

But Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 feels like the kind of shooter where your bullets come with consequences. Check it out in the trailer below, which has one of the devs commenting that “Instead of just shooting your way out of trouble, you’re actually fighting your way straight into it”.

The trailer doesn’t show off everything that I still got to experience at E3. Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is bloody massive in terms of scale, with the action kicking off on a map that is seems designed to kill you as quickly as possible. In fact, that same map was featured in a previous video, a 24 minute walkabout of sniping and hiding.

Here’s the embed link for that, if your boss isn’t around and you’ve got time to park off and watch it, while the Johnson paperwork piles up and you really should get that case sorted and dammit I’m drifting again. Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is out in June next year.

And hopefully with a better frame-rate than what was seen in that alpha footage. Which according to the date on that video, was around three months ago. Progress!

      Yeeeaah… And what it has to do with this article? I love MP, but I hate when some “heroes” use it as tool just for embarrassing people in Internet. So if you don’t get this game, which by the way may be one of the best games of this kind ever, shut up and go somewhere else.

        @scream4judas Of course he’s a moron, but take it easy, It’s always great to watch Monty Python 😛 And everybody here knows that Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 is awesome game.

    I’m kinda curious to see this one once it’s released, not a day-one buy though. I had fun with the previous ones but they were pretty simple & linear – cool if you, like me, enjoy sniping in games though.

      Happy to hear you had fun with our previuos games! Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is an open world game, so expect a lot more freedom this time and complexity as there’s also going to be a crafting system and a whole lot more :). And don’t take my words for granted, check the gameplay videos we’ve already released!

      There was a pretty long line to the SGW 3 booth on the GamesCom but I actually made it to check the demo on my own skin and it was really worth it! There are many new gameplay mechanics like crafting weapons or bullets (!) plus u r able to do a drone reckon (my fav part!) and for sure it makes the game more complex than its previous installments.

    So the one rifle sound is EXACTLY the AK47 sound from Counter Strike (Source as well as before that)

    Not really interested to be honest. Love sniping and what not, but think after a few hours the novelty would wear off.

      I kinda prefer sniping live opponents, so much more fun

        you can do it with SGW3 because it will be possible in a MP mode. Open world that they created, probably change way of thinking of this game, most people say that it will be short and boring game, maybe it will change, when will be a lot of side quests, and that quests will be interesting.

    Haven’t really been a fan of the previous games, love the concept but they just didn’t excite me – this one however looks pretty damn decent, will keeping an eye on it and might end up picking up a copy

    It’s freaking awesome. It looks good, and the gameplay seems to be very challenging. It wold be nice to be appreciated as gamer, and play a good fps witch requires some thinking.

    Nice looking game. Never played previous Snipers, but this one has been brought to my attention.

    This part of Sniper: Ghost Warrior sounds very interesting and something different than previous part at the same time. Graphics is much more better than SGW 1 and 2, world will be more open and we have more possibility to go our way. All of it sounds good.

    New Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 will be best of the series [if everything goes right] and will show how MGS would probably look in FPP mode:) There will be many things to do and take out. Many ways to target and open world, which will be one big battlefield…or perhaps our private shooting gallery:)

    Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 may be one of the most interesting FPS games of next year. And it’s because it’s not actually simple FPS. More tactical, not just killing everything around ya. I wish it was 2016 already.

    My God, I’d like to play already… Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 looks amazing! Just fantastic. And now after few shows and gameplays we can be sure it’s not just a stupid FPS in which flesh and blood is all about. Now we’ll have to sneak, patrol an area and prepare our every move before we’ll do anything. It’s of course harder than killing everyting that moves, but I prefer games while I’m playing I have think a little.

    all indications are that this game will be a huge success 😉 next year will be very interesting: SGW3, Fallout 4, Mafia… God I hope I’ll have some time to take a bath and eat…
