Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 Open Beta Confirmed, Only Coming to PC
Two single-player missions are in the beta, which begins next month.
An open beta for Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 is on the way, developer CI Games announced today.
Starting today, January 17, you can register at this website for a chance to get into the pre-release play period. The beta includes two single-player missions, Cut Off and Blockout (full descriptions can be seen below), and begins on February 3. The beta is only being held on PC.
In a statement, CI Games CEO Marek Tyminski said he encourages players to provide feedback to the studio via the Steam forums.
Here are official descriptions for Ghost Warrior 3's two beta missions:
Cut Off: The Separatists control a large antenna array, which lets them use satellites to track enemy movements and communicate with distant outposts. Jon needs to infiltrate this compound and manually reposition the dishes to intercept the satellite signal. Gaining access to enemy communications would give Jon and his team a tactical advantage over the enemy, as well as possible intel on his brother, Robert.
Blockout: Jon's cooperation with the local resistance, the Rotki Lions, gave him the location of one of the targets from his most wanted list--a list containing the names of war criminals that Jon can neutralize to bring justice to the people of Georgia. The target is Ivan Krustchev. He's hiding out in an abandoned apartment complex, surrounded by his guards. How will you complete this mission? Will you use your sniper rifle from the opposite building, storm the outpost with your assault rifle, or sneak past the guards and quietly take out your target?
Unlike the more linear previous games in the series, it is set in an open world and is described as a reinvention of the sniper-centric series. The game will also have multiplayer. For more, check out GameSpot's interview with Tyminski.
