We've mentioned Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 a few times here on Gaming Nexus. The game is saying all the right things to shape up into a great shooter, but I'll hold off on hype as both of the previous iterations didn't review up to their promise. A key element highlighted in the latest news from CI Games is all about weapons and weapon customization. The developers are positioning this customization as a key element in the experience. Players will be able to tailor their arsenal to their play style and open the game up in unique ways. The guns on offer range from pistols, to machine guns, shotguns, bows, and of course sniper rifles. Weapons can equip or drop scopes, laser aiming modules, silencers, magazine sizes, bipods and camo for various boosts and hinderances to their weapons of choice. The goal is to open up play styles from stealth and distance sniping, to infiltration, even to all out action and close quarters combat.
Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 releases April 25th on PS4, Xbox One, and PC.
