Correctamundo! If you pre-order Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 [official site] on PC or PS4 systems, you’ll also be granted the game’s season pass.
I do not support the whole game pre-ordering scheme — the idea of purchasing a game before you know that it’s going to be solid, functional and as promised, then ending up with a glitch-riddled, falsely advertised mess. It makes more sense to hang on until critics (who aren’t paid off, mind) start releasing their experiences with the games, then weighing the pros and cons and deciding whether the game is actually worth one’s time.
Notwithstanding, CI Games’ offer to give pre-purchasers of Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 the season pass as a bonus is more than tempting. This is probably one of the only pre-order bonuses that actually reward you justly for your faith in the game’s future and the developers, as opposed to the usual ‘buy our game early and we’ll give you an EXTRA FREE SKIN!!!’ balderdash. This one is better.
‘We have a long-term investment in our community and believe that this season pass is a huge value to them,’ said CI Games CEO Marek Tymiński ‘The content within the season pass has variety to it, and we’re committed to provide support and additional content throughout 2017 for our largest game to date.’
If you decide to purchase the game prior to its release on PC or PS4 systems on April 4 for US$50, you’ll gain access to the following things included in the season pass:
• Two major single-player expansions – ‘The Escape of Lydia’ and ‘The Sabotage’
• Two multiplayer maps
• An exclusive all-terrain vehicle
• Two exclusive weapons – The McMillan TAC-338A Sniper Rifle and the Compound Bow
• Exclusive events and content drops throughout 2017
It’s hard to tell whether the addition of the season pass alongside the full game in pre-order form will affect the amount of content within the game on launch, but I believe that if you’re going to get it anyway, now is the best time.
