"Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3" goes open world
CI Games CEO Marek Tyminski told Gamespot in an exclusive interview that his team was inspired by other open-world games like "Far Cry 4" and "Metal Gear Solid 5," especially when it was all about open-world construction. While they are going with the open-world method, they are at the same time telling the story of the video game. He is proud to say that they are more realistic, more authentic, and more tactical than the games that they were inspired of in the first place.
Reason for "Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3" going open world
Tyminski revealed that they wanted to go open world with "Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3" because in the previous games of the franchise, they were only telling part of the story. He explained that being a sniper means much more than just sniping because the player is a one man army, part spy, part sniper, but they would also take part in close-quarters combat sometimes. To make the experience more authentic to them, they want to tell the story in that kind of open-world environment and giving them a lot of freedom.
"Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3" will only have one controller character in the campaign
Players will control John North and they will be in the country of Georgia, Tyminski explained. He is here in this country because he was ordered to be here, but at the same time he has a personal vendetta to accomplish. It turns out that his brother is actually the biggest enemy in this game.
"Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3" confirmed multiplayer content
Tyminski revealed that there will be multiplayer content for "Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3." They want to treat it more as a solid addition to the single player campaign.
