Yep, the open beta for the stealth action sniper game, Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 [official site], is set to release next month – February 2nd, specifically.
Well, we say “open beta”, but you have to register for it, and the Steam announcement says “to be given a chance to”, so it’s more like a closed beta for everyone. Well, not everyone, because unfortunately for console gamers it’s only available for PC. There currently isn’t a set end date for it.
There will be two missions included in the technical test:
Cut Off – Jon (you) must infiltrate a communications facility and intercept its satellite signal for potential information on the enemy and Jon’s brother.
Blockout – Jon (you) has been given a list of war criminals that he must kill. Ivan Krustchev is the one that Jon needs to kill right now, and he is hiding out, surrounded by a bunch of well-armed guards. Kill him in any way you like, but kill him good.
One of the key aspects in Sniper Ghost Warrior 3, and the part that makes me really eager to play it, is the open world aspect. It takes great effort and a lot of attention to detail to make a good open world, and I’m interested in finding out how SGW3’s turns out.
Hopefully, this will take care of your sniping-related needs until the game gets fully released for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One on April 4.
