Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 Open Beta Announced

Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 Open Beta Coming

Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is well on its way to its spring release. But fans will be able to get a sneak peek into the action very soon. As developer CI Games reports, Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 will be in open beta on Steam, and registration begins Jan. 17, 2017.

According to a press release from CI Games and Evolve PR, players can register over at the official Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 website "to be given a chance to experience the beautiful open-world setting of the Republic of Georgia and get exclusive access to two single-player missions: Cut Off and Blockout." The beta itself begins Feb. 3, 2016 just a couple weeks away from the registration period.

Marek Tyminski, the CEO of CI Games, is certainly happy to give fans the opportunity to experience the game early. "We can’t wait for fans of the Sniper Ghost Warrior series to get an early taste of what’s to come when the game releases on Apr. 4, 2017," he said in the press statement. "Since this is a technical test, we encourage everyone to give us feedback of their experiences in the Steam forums. We hope they enjoy what they play!"

The two missions available are interesting enough. In Cut Off, the player infiltrates an enemy compound and repositions satellite dishes to intercept an enemy antenna signal. In Blockout, the player gets to target one of the protagonist's hits on his Most Wanted list, which is compiled of "the names of war criminals" that the player "can neutralize to bring justice to the people of Georgia." Blockout promises plenty of versatility, from storming the front to picking off targets with a sniper rifle.

Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 launches on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One simultaneously on Apr. 4, 2017. The open beta is currently relegated to Steam, which means only PC players can hop in. Check back as more news develops.

    WOW man the open beta for a single player game!? I haven't seen that for some time now. It is cool that the developers decided to do the beta test available for public

    • hooker

      Taht;s right and guess what - I am the one who will test it ^^ I can't believe it, I was sure other player will sign before me, but I did it!

      • Robert

        @disqus_NZ3JpvqIKI:disqus You want to be the only one, I signed up to... as hundrets of other players I think πŸ˜‰ There's nothing to be proud of, just enjoy SGW3 πŸ™‚

      • Maldy

        As it turns out there ware loads of people who tested the game thanks to that they ware giving 4 steam keys to everyone who signed up. I liked the open beta very much. What are your thought?

  • Dominic

    I'm glad to see information like this. Open beta test sounds like demo πŸ™‚ I'm so happy cuz I think we need to wait for this game to April, now we can play on beta test almost two months early.

    • DannyB

      I'd say it is even better than a demo version. You get to play two missions and afterwards you'll be able to give your feedback to the developers. You are helping the company to make the game. Only a tiny bit, but you are!

      • DannyB

        Lads! I did play the open beta and I loved it! The game is everything I wanted it too be. Sniping mechanics ware awesome and I felt like I was shooting a real rifle - the only difference is that I didn't feel recoil πŸ˜›

        • Fatty

          Haha yeah I liked the sniping as well, I think that the warrior and ghost mode add a lot to SGW 3. What is your favourite style?

          • DannyB

            My favourite is style is sniping. I will definetly play as a ghost or a warrior on occasion, but SGW 3 is mostly abount sniping for me πŸ™‚

  • Clamp

    Im starting to belive, that develpers miss demo version and now is hype on beta version, so they deicde to run so beta version of thier games to show us what we can expect after full game. Bravo CI Games.

    • hooker

      And that was better idea, right? I think everybody will be pleased. Well, maybe not everybody, but PC players.

      • Tanner

        Everybody πŸ™‚ PS4 and XboX got their own titles, so they can wait πŸ™‚
        I love the Idea of Open Beta, for me it's a great opportunity to play SGW3 earlier. Can't miss that. Love screens and videos from CIGames. See you in game!

      • Clamp

        That hurt most of console owners. I bet, that they want to test game too. Not only on PC, but also on PS4/XO. But if you donte have what yopu like, you like what you have.

  • Noizy Bird

    CI Games wons a gold statue in January. They announced beta version and everyone can achive the code for that. I hope, that w will have enough time to test game.

    • hooker

      Srsly? Well, I'm not sure it's going to be that easy, but maybe you're right ;)) I'm pretty sure Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 will deserve for many different prizes πŸ™‚

      • Noizy Bird

        What comes to prizes we need to wait some time, becouse like you know its to early to do such recap. It could be just theory and nothing more. But i think, that CI Games had chance to be in many rankings and charts.

        • hooker

          Of course, I wasn't categorical πŸ™‚ I need to play the whole to have a opinion. But I really believe in this game.

  • scream4judas

    I can;t believe this i happening πŸ˜‰ I don't have to wait until April - next month I'm going to play 2 missions of SGW3 and enjoy it like hell.

    • Fatty

      I'd say it is more like 2 months. It's the end of Jan and the open beta lunches at 3rd Feb! I can't wait as well! I've signed up today so I hope that they will accept me as well. Do you think that they have enough players already?

  • Andy

    Time to prepare before beta πŸ˜€ On official CIG yt there's a video guide with basic tactics πŸ˜€ I can't wait to play it!

    • Robert

      I watched it and it's nice of them to share it. But... I'm not a soldier, but my father was and he told you should shoot after exhale, not inhale.

  • Wellington

    i've wachted all screens, and trailers. I've saw that video guide, i want to play this game today, but..... i've got PS4. I've bought preorder last week, I have to wait.. πŸ™ There will be a possibility to play MP between PS4 players, and PC players? What do you think?

    • hooker

      I don't think so. Playing on PC is little easier, it's easier to excel and finisz the target. Maybe get a PC? πŸ˜›

      • Robert

        I play both and stil think that PS is better to play sport games like FIFA or racing. FPS is much funnier to play on PC.

        • Tanner

          Definitly. PC is better for FPS. I've got PC, so no worries. I expect a really great FPS from CIGames. We will see in 3 days from now. I Singed up for Open beta, and now i'm ready to test that game. πŸ™‚ Can't wait

          • Robert

            I don't know how to aim the target playing with pad - this is ridiculous. PC is made for shooters, that's for sure.

          • Delight

            It's easy, you can buy a mouse, and connect it with your console. I can't imagine, how i can play in SGW3, warrior mode f.ex. with Pad. It's impossible, u can't be that fast!

  • Robert

    Soooo... what do you think about open beta? Are you glad? I think SGW3 needs some fixes, but CIG probably will do it very good and in April we're going to have sooo much fun πŸ™‚

    • Maldy

      I'd like them to work on optimization but other than that I am very happy. I liked the general felling of the game and I think that AI was very good for a normal difficulty

      • Andy

        Ok, I've seen few opinions and it looks like that there are only a few things to be fixed, so I'm sure that I'll buy it πŸ˜‰

        • Maldy

          Other than the optimization what are the issues that you have experienced? To be frank I didn't see any other flaws in the game

          • Andy

            I didn't play it ;( I just quoted others opinion and after that I'm glad that there's no many bugs to fix πŸ˜‰

          • moreThanZero666

            They should work on optimization, but even my minimal settings give me 30 fps on this game. For me that demo was good and now I have time to think about improvements my computer

          • Fatty

            The game occasionally droped under 30 FPS but only for a few seconds in moments where there was a lot going around. Oh and it's probably important to mention that my PC doesn't meet the minimal reqs so I am happy as well

          • Whis

            My beta version didn't dropped under 40 FPS, and my PC meet only min. req. You don't need expensive and new PC to play SGW - its good news! πŸ™‚

          • turas88

            I hadn't any problems, beta went very smoothly on my gear, but have to admit that I have brand new pc. Although, there were a few bugs that needs to be optimized but I'm sure that CIG will do it

          • Vall

            Few bugs in beta means nothing. I had 30 FPS constantly, and my PC is a trash. I will bought new PC, so i can't wait for full game!

          • turas88

            Well, as for me, this beta was mainly for detect as many bugs, as we, the gamers, can πŸ˜‰ And I hope that CIGames will fix it πŸ˜€

          • Fatty

            That's awesome! I also think that they will optimize the game even further, so maybe I'll run it @ constant 30 FPS

    • Fatty

      After testing the game this week I am certain that SGW 3 will be the best sniping game in 2017! I think that CI Games did a great job
