Lords of the Fallen developer CI Games has released a new trailer for Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3, which is pitched as a reinvention of the series. Whereas its predecessors were more linear, Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 uses an open-world structure.
This is the focus of the trailer, as it shows off some of the game's massive-looking maps, which take players to places like mountainsides, train stations, and enemy camps. Though the word sniper leads off the game's title, you can also make use of your character's "ghost" and "warrior" skills. Sniping enemies from afar may be the best approach in some cases, but at other times, going in guns-blazing can also work. You'll see in the video, too, that you can drive cars and mow down your enemies that way as well. Check out the trailer above.
"Ultimately it's mixing and matching [sniper, ghost, and warrior] elements to adapt to the situation as it unfolds," senior designer Tomasz Pruski told GameSpot at Gamescom 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."
CI Games will broadcast new footage today at 4:30 PM PT / 7:30 PM ET as part of TwitchCon, where the game is also playable for attendees. You can watch the livestream event here on Twitch.
Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 launches for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on January 27, 2017.
