Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 creeps onto PC

First-person sneak-o-shooter Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 [official site] is now out, popping digital faces from afar in Georgia (not the American one). While the first two Ghostbusters were linear, 3 goes open-world like your Wildlandses and your Far Cries. Ghostbusters 3 is built for sneaking around, surveilling, and carefully picking shots, but players can also try their luck up-close and bang-y. Read the rest of this entry »

Slowly, quietly: Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 delayed again

Patience is key when sniping so if you aren’t prepared for Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 [official site] to be delayed time after time then it’s probably not a game for you anyway. CI Games today announced they’re bumping the stealthy first-person shooter back from April 4th to April 25th. Why the delay? Because they want to make the game better, obvs. Following feedback from their beta test, they’ve decided three weeks of tweaking would do it good. In the meantime, hey, Sniper Elite 4 is quite fun and only came out a few weeks back. Read the rest of this entry »

Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 ‘open beta’ coming February

An open beta test of Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 [official site] will launch next month, ahead of the first-person face-shooter’s launch in April. “An off-brand Far Cry with a dash of Battlefield” is what RPS spotter Edwin Evans-Thirlwell called GW3 after playing a preview version last year, which sounds like it might be a lark. If you’re interested, you can sign up for the beta over here and yes, asking people to register in advance “to be given a chance to” play is a funny way to run an open beta’. Pip suggests an “Ajar Beta”, perhaps an “On The Latch Beta”, or a “The Key Is Under The Plant Pot Beta”. Read the rest of this entry »

Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is an off-brand Far Cry game

Guards come in all shapes and sizes, but their behaviours are quite robotic

We sent Edwin Evans-Thirwell into the field to see Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 [official site] and he came back to us with a report about the good, the bad and the ugly of the game, and thoughts on the loneliness of the long distance killer.

Sniper rifles are ubiquitous in video games, but I’m not sure a game has ever captured what it means to be a sniper – or to face one. These guns are characterised as delicate tools, the preserve of a methodical elite, but while sniping may require subtlety, a sniper rifle is essentially an instrument of terror.

Sneak-O-Bangs! Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 Gameplay Vid

Bored snipers often scout around spying on boys. The most highly-skilled snipers can throw their voices to the others, and hold a conversation by reading lips through their scope.

Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 [official site] is the third in the FPS series, but the first that developers CI Games are making as a “full-fledged triple-A title”. The first two face-shooters were a bit cheap and cheerful, see. So what’s so different about 3? You can have a peek for yourself, as a new 24-minute narrated gameplay trailer the devs playing through the demo they took to E3.

In short, it’s now a big open-world affair with side-quests (or ‘war crimes’ as CI have decided is a cute name for them) and crafting and everything, and looks a lot less janky.
