After all the controversy regarding the Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 season pass, it’s surprising to know that it’s free for those who didn’t pre-order the game. Players will still need the game to access the content, but they can download the season pass right away. Whether it’s a glitch or the developer showing kindness is unknown, but fans might want to take advantage.
Redditors discovered that the pass was free for Xbox One owners, which left many curious as to why. Soon enough, it was also discovered that the pass is also free on PS4 and Windows PC, leaving many confused. Originally, the season pass was meant to be free for those that decided to pre-order the game in advance.
At first, the Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 season pass was only meant to be a bonus for PS4 and PC. This apparently angered Xbox One gamers and eventually the pass was made free for them as well, according to Gamezone. While that was a good gesture, no one expected the season pass to become free all of a sudden.
Season passes have become commonplace in this age of gaming, which has made many fans roll their eyes. Players are just hoping that these passes have plenty of cool content, hoping it’s worth the additional expense. The fact that the one for Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is free might convince players to give it a go.
Not A Great Game?
While the price of the Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 season pass remain a mystery, it’s worth noting that the game isn’t so great. The game has an overall rating of 54 on Open Critic, which is pretty average and not worth buying for most gamers. Some might rent it or get it when it’s cheaper, but most won’t buy it at full price unless they’ve already pre-ordered it.
Due to the average reviews, it’s easy to assume that this is why the season pass is currently free. Then again, games like Titanfall 2 and Overwatch give players free content, so one could argue that players should just buy those instead. For all we know, the pass could be free for a limited time, so anyone with interest in the game should get it now.
Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 is available now on the PS4, Xbox One and Windows PC. Anyone interested in the game should try it now, since the pass is currently free for everyone to try. Those that pre-ordered the game digitally had the chance to pre-load it and could try it out now.
