Sniper Ghost Warrior contracts with Contracts

After dreaming big Sniper Ghost Warrior 3, developers CI Games have decided that there's little practical difference between targets being far away or simply small, and accordingly announced Sniper Ghost Warrior Contracts. After making a big fancy open-world in GW3, this time they're thinking smaller with- hang on, they mean contracts as a noun, not a verb. Ah. Well! They're still scaling down, talking about…

Ambition was Sniper Ghost Warrior 3’s downfall, says dev

Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 [official site] did not launch in the healthiest state back in April. Despite multiple delays, it suffered from long load times and more than a few bugs. It was also missing its planned multiplayer component. In a statement made yesterday, CI Games CEO Marek Tymiñski confesses that mistakes were made and tries to offer an explanation.

Steam Charts: war dawns

Did you know: the weekly Steam charts, in which we round-up the ten games which sold best on Steam over the previous week, are broadly the most-read articles on RPS these days? That means I can never stop. Never. Stop.

Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 creeps onto PC

First-person sneak-o-shooter Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 [official site] is now out, popping digital faces from afar in Georgia (not the American one). While the first two Ghostbusters were linear, 3 goes open-world like your Wildlandses and your Far Cries. Ghostbusters 3 is built for sneaking around, surveilling, and carefully picking shots, but players can also try their luck up-close and bang-y.

CI Games today announced they're bumping the stealthy first-person shooter back from April 4th to April 25th. Why the delay?

Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 ‘open beta’ coming February

An open beta test of Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 [official site] will launch next month, ahead of the first-person face-shooter's launch in April. "An off-brand Far Cry with a dash of Battlefield" is what RPS spotter Edwin Evans-Thirlwell called GW3 after playing a preview version last year, which sounds like it might be a lark. If you're interested, you can sign up for the beta…

Feature: Through a glass darkly

Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is an off-brand Far Cry game

We sent Edwin Evans-Thirwell into the field to see Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 [official site] and he came back to us with a report about the good, the bad and the ugly of the game, and thoughts on the loneliness of the long distance killer. Sniper rifles are ubiquitous in video games, but I'm not sure a game has ever captured what it means to…

Bang Thhhwpp Splat – Sniper: Ghost Warrior 3 Announced

Given the option in an FPS, assuming I'm too far for a shotgun and the game's stingy with revolver ammo, I'm awfully happy with a sniper rifle in my virtual hands. Great noises, sniper rifles. Popping heads with a bolt-action rifle, nervous that their pals are getting closer and closer, is up there with slide-kick-shotgunning and dual-pistol-side-diving on the list of Cool Ways To Kill…
