City Interactive has announced an open beta for Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 on PC.
Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 will be out in a few months, but PC players excited for some sniper action will get the chance to play the game early. City Interactive has announced that they will be holding an open beta for the game starting February 3. The beta will give players the opportunity to explore parts of the open-world setting, but also try out two single player missions. Registration for the beta is available now.
“We can’t wait for fans of the Sniper Ghost Warrior series to get an early taste of what’s to come when the game releases on April 4, 2017,” said Marek Tymiński, CEO of CI Games. “Since this is a technical test, we encourage everyone to give us feedback of their experiences in the Steam forums. We hope they enjoy what they play!”
Here’s a breakdown of the two available 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?
Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 is out April 4 on PS4, Xbox One, and PC. It looks like the beta will be exclusive to the PC version of the game.
