IGI 3 Gameplay Features

IGI 3 Gameplay

Coming to the game’s core gameplay mechanics, IGI games of the past have always been stealth-shooter games, where players are tasked with undertaking covert-operation-type missions for specific goals, and as far as the screenshots on Steam are concerned, it looks like IGI Origins, a.k.a., IGI 3 operates through the same first-person-shooter gameplay mechanics where players will once again be tasked with carrying out dangerous and exhilarating covert operations.

The IGI 3 gameplay falls under the stealth-action genre, and players will take on the role of the main protagonist of the series, Micheal Kang, and will look to explore and exploit the various tactical possibilities of the plot in this mission-based game.

The game looks like it is a single-player-focused game, and will be played in first-person. Some sections of fans are asking for an option in the settings where they can switch the game from first-person mode to third-person mode, but only time will tell whether such a setting is in the game or not.

The player will be armed with advanced weaponry to survive the harsh scenarios of the covert assignments. During these missions, players will be exposed to various challenging situations where they will be required to use their tactics, as well as the tactical tools at their disposal, to survive.

The previous versions of the IGI equipped the character with explosives and infiltration tools. We can already see advanced warfare guns such as Heckler & Koch MP5SD6 in the IGI 3 Trailer.

The game will be distributed in a multiple-mission format like most modern stealth-based games nowadays are, but this game in particular looks to build up on that for a more memorable experience.

Games in the IGI series, by default, are considered to be among the most difficult mission-based covert-op games to have existed, so, it will be interesting to see what difficulty level the upcoming IGI Origins will be set at.

The developing team has shared a teaser of the IGI 3, making the game appear much more realistic than its predecessors, promising players a thrilling adventure that they haven’t been on before.

Moreover, as per rumors, there is also the possibility for players to be able to upgrade their weaponry and tools in the upcoming game to help them efficiently take out the various enemies they will encounter.

Do you guys think the latest installment in the iconic IGI series will surpass the older two counterparts of the series in terms of both its difficulty settings and ratings? We would like to know your perspectives on this topic in the comments section below.

IGI 3 Weapons

Being a war-themed game, fans of IGI 3 can look forward to a wide selection of weapons and gadgets that will feature in the game. Based on the teaser’s gameplay scenes, the controls of the weapons appeared to be quite smooth and effective, with natural-looking recoil and reload mechanics.

Moreover, the IGI 3 trailer also revealed a lot about the weapons that the players will be handling in the game, but a highly effective but often overlooked weapon that is looking to play a prominent role in this game is the knife. Since this game follows the stealth gameplay approach, a high-damage knife is a crucial weapon for the success of their missions, and as we can clearly see from the game’s trailer, players are effectively utilizing it to brutalize their foes.

Furthermore, IGI 3 is being developed through Unreal Engine 5, which will enable realistic characters and a more vivid gameplay experience.

The accuracy of this list may not be 100% since it is made by putting together pieces of rumors and speculations found online, but we hope it gives a clear picture of what weapons players can expect to get their hands on. So, here is the list of a few chosen weapons that will be a part of IGI 3’s Gameplay:

  • Browning (Hi-Power): The player is seen operating the semi-automatic pistol in the latest teaser released by the Anti Matter Games. This pistol awfully resembles a Browning High Power pistol.
  • AK-74: A cut scene of the IGI Origins reveals a Soviet Soldier armed with an AK-74. One more cut scene features it resting on the table.
  • Heckler & Koch Mp5SD6: This Parabellum sub-machine gun can also be seen in the cut scene of the game.
  • Welrod Mark I: This is a short-range weapon used for assassination tasks. Welrod Mark I can be seen throughout the IGI series.

Don’t worry, these aren’t all the guns available in the game, but currently, they are the only ones speculated to be available in IGI 3.

Additionally, as per various rumors, a lot more inventory space and weapons are bound to feature in the upcoming IGI Origins game too, but these features aren’t officially confirmed by the developers yet, so we will have to wait and see what develops there.
