The Sniper: Ghost Warrior games have been decently entertaining lone-wolf stealth shooters, but they’ve also struggled to be as popular as the Sniper Elite series from Rebellion. City Interactive’s CEO Marek Tyminski explained to Gamespot why Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 will stand out from the competition. According to Tyminski, the open-world structure of their game is inspired by games like Far Cry 4 and Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain, but offers more realism and authenticity. But then Tyminski shared some details.
Being [a] sniper is much more than just sniping. You are a one man army. You are part spy, part sniper, but you also partake in close-quarters combat using assault rifles.
Eye-rolling Hollywood misconception aside, what’s the realistic story going to be?
Right, you are John North and you’re in the country of Georgia. You’re there because you have your orders, but at the same time, it’s personal. Your brother turns out to be your biggest enemy in the game.
It’s personal. Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 is scheduled to launch on January 27th.
