Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 just came out recently and the game has made its way to the top of the best-selling listing on Steam. That is the PC version of the game, so what about the console version of the game? Reports are coming in that Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 takes 5 minutes to load on PS4 and that is not even the worst part of the story.
5 minutes is a year in gaming and there is so much that you can do in that short amount of time. When you wait so long for a game to load you expect that this will be the only loading screen that you will have to face and that the rest of the game will be seamless. That my friend is not the case when it comes to the PS4 version of Sniper Ghost Warrior 3.
In Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 you will have to wait for 5 minutes not only at the initial setup but also every time you cross one of the four zones in the game. So can imagine why some people are very upset with the game and how long they have to wait in order to get back into the game world.
CI Games, the developers behind Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 have released a statement and this is what they have to say regarding the issue:
We are aware of the problem with long initial loading times, but thanks to this decision we were able to shorten any loading times during missions, respawns, and fast travel to a minimum:
Fast travel 4-15s
Load last checkpoint (depend on situation) 15-30s
Restart mission 25s
Ultimately we feel like this inconvenience is rewarded with a comfortable experience once the game is loaded.
While there are some that might agree with this statement I am pretty sure there are many people that do not like this move. Be sure to check out the challenge mode of the game if you are interested in buying it but have not made your mind up yet.
Let us know what you think about Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 and whether or not this was the right move to make.
