CI Games will host a beta session for PC gamers before it drops Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 in April. On February 3, a select group of players will be able to explore a portion of the game’s world and take part in two missions.
In the “Cut Off” mission, you’ll have to infiltrate an enemy-held communications base in order to intercept their transmissions, which would help the friendly rebel forces. However, the data in the base can also help you find Robert, the brother of protagonist Jonathan North.
The second mission, titled “Blockout,” will require you to eliminate Ivan Krustchev, one of the targets on the your Most Wanted list. In both of these missions, you’ll be able to complete the objective in multiple ways. You can always unleash your inner Rambo and go in guns blazing or, as we saw in a video last month, you can sneak past patrols without making too much noise.
In addition to the beta missions, CI Games also included the hardware requirements for the beta, which may or may not change before the official release date.

As the game will still be in beta, there will probably be some features that won’t be available until the finished version comes out. However, this is your chance to see if Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is worth the time and, more importantly, money. You can sign up for the beta right now on the game’s website.

My PC barley meets the minimal requirements but I hope I'll have at least 25 FPS while playing the game. When it is released I'll probably play it on my PS to have a better experienceReply
I played the beta last week and I was shocked to see that the game ran at constant 30 FPS. It was awesome experience! I think the minimal requirements are a bit inflatedReply
