We can expect to see the third installment of the 'hit' series on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC in the first half of 2016, developer CI Games announced today, no mention of Xbox 360 or PS3. sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 will be set in Eastern Europe, in modern times, where you play a sniper who is "caught between three warring factions." The theme of the previous games runs through the latest version, you will have the option to pick off the enemies at range or take a closer stealthier approach. CI Games says Ghost Warrior 3 will offer "non-linear, sandbox-style gameplay" set on open-ended maps. This approach will give more freedom to players to play the missions however they like, adding longevity to the game.
