Based on a video review carried out by Eurogamer, it appears that Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 needs 4 minutes 50 seconds to get from the main menu to the in-game action on PlayStation 4.
This draggy long wait comes when gamers try to load a save game via the main menu or traveling to the four different territories; however, the wait time drops after a death or when fast-traveling.
A report by GameSpot suggests that this annoying wait time could be caused, to some extent, by Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 being an open-world style game.
The game will be launched today and so, a new patch has been unleashed that fixes an array of technical issues. That said, load times doesn’t seem to be among the issues that would be fixed with this new update.
CI Games clarified to GameSpot that the long wait time is actually beneficial to the game as it allows it to “shorten any loading times during missions, respawns, and fast-travel to a minimum.”
Well, do you think this is a downside to the game that may affect its appeal to gamers?
