Sniper Elite 3 - official thread

I'm surprised there isn't a thread for this game yet (or maybe I missed it!).

I played it at E3, and if you're a Sniper Elite fan, then the gameplay I enjoyed made this a must buy. Better graphics, animations, sneaking, etc. made it super fun to play.

Co-op play is back, which is something I loved in the previous version.

Reviews are coming back middling (6-8's out of 10 seem to be the standard), but that's not going to stop me from picking it up. Anyone else going to get this?

Looks very interesting and they are releasing it at the best possible time. I'm hoping for a Wolfenstein like surprise here.

Pre-ordered it on PC, it's freakin awesome so far. If you liked V2, this just continues that goodness

Any thoughts that aren't spoilers you can share? It's painful to see it out there in the wild and have to sit back and wait for it!

Well I loved SE V2 and both NZA games. This continues that awesomeness. It looks gorgeous, runs great for me. There's some small bugs, at least I call them bugs, that for some reason make perfectly clear shots miss. It's annoying but not gamebreaking. One thing I like is with the new ranks, you unlock weapons/sidearms/equipment as you progress. And you also unlock parts for your rifles as well as different reticles for the scopes. It's kind of nice.

It's hard to report on the MP action...because there doesn't seem to be any.

I tried to play for about an hour, and I connected to only a few games, with never more than just 2 players (including myself). Looks like the MP of this game was DOA.

With that being said, I could see MP being fun if there were more people playing. Maybe we can all try to get together and play a match? Not sure how the party system works with SPIII, but worth a shot.

*edit/update* Turns out there is an MP issue currently effecting Xbox and PS4. What it is, I can't seem to find out (their official forums are down, and the link the provide in Twitter for a workaround is coming up as expired), but it appears to effect matchmaking. Hopefully it'll be corrected soon, I tried to play a few more times and again only had one other player in the server.

Playing 1vs1 in a timed 20 minute match in a huge map as a sniper doesn't lend itself for much excitement.

Another quick update - MP is broken.

Here is a recent (yesterday) tweet from SniperElite in response to a question about the MP patch.

https://twitter.com/SniperElite/stat...21394757070848

The basics of it are this is currently only a SP game until they correct the MP issues.

Has anyone been playing this on "authentic" mode? I tend to like to punish myself by playing games at the hardest setting (I always feel that the hardest setting is what the pure game experience is that was the developers vision). Although it says that there is no saving in "authentic", it does save each mission you complete, so you don't start from the beginning of the game. So far I'm enjoying the challenge - it makes the going slow but at the same time very rewarding!

Couple of older updates on the Steam side of things;

Multiplayer issues (Sniper Elite 3 Official forum) - July 3rd
UPDATE: 10th July 2014 - Version 1.03a Patch Notes - July 10th
Known issues with multihomed addresses on dedicated servers

That's awesome. I wish I could play MP, but when I try to it either times out or has only 1 person join. In essence MP is useless to me. It'll be great when they finally fix it.
