It’s been out the door several weeks now, but there’s no denying Sniper Elite 4 has proven to be a success. As for its competition, well it seems the same can’t be said – at least for now.
CI Games, creators of both the Sniper Ghost Warrior series and Lords of the Fallen have announced further delays that will push the highly anticipated open-world sniping shooter back three weeks to April 25th, 2017.
Whilst there won’t be too many that will be happy to hear of or find appreciation in another delay, Marek Tyminski, CEO of CI Games has confirmed this will be the final delay for Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 and feels that everyone will benefit from a better experience on launch day due to the final changes they will be able to make.
The changes made over the next few weeks will be based on feedback given to the team during the beta of Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 that select players took part in, and whilst some will curse the arrival of what is surely set to be another day one patch, it’s certainly good to see such attention being given to any issues before launch, rather than releasing in a state we’ve seen many other games in the past – Homefront, Halo. I’m looking at you.
Not up to speed with CI Games upcoming title? – Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 puts players in the shoes of an American Sniper named Jonathan North, and drops you into enemy territory just outside of Russian borders into Georgia. Through Jonathan’s eyes players will follow a story of brotherhood, faith and betrayal in what is said to be the most complete sniper experience yet. With large open maps, a wide selection of gadgets and varying weather effects to aid or hamper your effectiveness, there will certainly be plenty to keep players occupied.
