Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 lives again in this new trailer

Oh-Bother

Hey, ‘member Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3? ‘Member how you were going to traverse an open world and face all manner of danger? ‘Member Chewbacca? Anyway, CI Games has had Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 in the development crosshairs for a while now. If you’re familiar with the previous two games, then this third entry is a big departure from the usual scripted shenanigans.

A while back when I went hands on with it, Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 was huge. It was also clearly influenced by Australia, as the entire open world structure seemed as if it wanted me dead. It was challenging then, and it certainly looks just as challenging in this new trailer for it. So check the wind, compensate for the Coriolis effect and press play:

Back at E3 last year, CI Games still explained to me how they wanted to make a game which lived up to the title of Sniper: Ghost Warrior. They wanted players to be able to incorporate some run ‘n gun action with sniping, sabotage and espionage. “Ultimately it’s mixing and matching [sniper, ghost, and warrior] elements to adapt to the situation as it unfolds,” senior designer Tomasz Pruski said to GameSpot earlier this year.

Even a skilled sniper can miss, the wind may be too strong, and when people converge on your location, you have to shift into warrior to engage or try sneaking away. It’s not sitting on a sniper nest and pulling a trigger for 20 minutes.

The current release date for Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 targets Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC on January 27. That puts it in the crosshairs of Rebellion’s far more visceral sharpshooter, Sniper Elite 4. A game which is out on Valentine’s Day next year. If you’re hungry for more of CI Game’s more grounded shooter, then you can check out a livestream from Twitchcon of Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 from 4:30 PM PT / 7:30 PM ET.

Still needs more Marky Mark Wahlberg though.

      Sniper Elite 3 was a bit of a let-down coming from SE2, but it will still fun. I also love sniper games.

        I haven’t played 3 yet, 2 was ok so I’m not expecting all that much really.

          The controls were a bit iffy in 3 and there weren’t enough long shots for my liking

        actually this Sniper GW 3 is like an sniper simulator, in SE you play as sniper , in SGW3 probably you need to think like sniper, – be a sniper, not play as sniper

          Yeah, we will see how it works now. For now I am excited about the fact that SGW 3 will not make you snipe all the time. If you feel like shooting some guys with your AK the game will also allow this. We will see how will it work out

          I agree with you. For me too Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 will be game which we must think like a sniper if we want to play like him. But I think both of this game looks promising. Is sad SGW3 will be released in April.

            Sad, but now I can play both games without pressure, First SE4, and then SGW3. Hope it’s last delay.. probably they have optimization problems with PS/Xbox ?

            SE is very good series, probably better than SGW. But really now when I watch newest SGW’s gameplays and SE’s I’m pretty sure Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 will be way better. It sucks they deleyed premiere, but they probably did it, because they don’t want to release new game just before SE.

    Wasn’t there an arcade type version of this game? Or well, there was something else call Sniper that had you looking through the scope to make those important shots. Loads of fun and super tough the further you got.

      I have literally no idea what you’re talking about 😉 But Sniper Ghost Warrior is pretty good series. 1st part was very good, 2nd… actually I’m not big fan o it, but still not bad. And now look at SGW3, it’s gonna be awesome.

    Great to see new trailer from CI Games about Sniper Ghost Warrior3. Very nice music: “We are the hero.” It’s sounds good but not only music is nice on this trailer, all of this location looks very interesting. I hope this part of SGW series will be the best because it looks like it will be.

    I love that the world is open. I love the fact that the map looks so much like post soviet union country. I love the slow-motion shots but I hate the music in this trailer. Come on CI games it is so gay..

    I think this is going to be one of the best sniper games ever. Looks nice, great options, new weapons, complicated story… Awesome.
