CI Games have released a new patch for Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 today, adding Steam Cloud support and addressing saved game corruption. The patch takes the game to version 1.2. It was a 4.3GB download for me on Steam, so it’s quite a big one.

    As well as those two headline changes, there are several crash fixes. Including the intriguingly named ‘job manager Atomic counter underflow’ crash. Never let your Atomic counter underflow, kids. The ‘Party Crasher’ crash has been fixed too. Somewhat ironic, that one.

    The changelog for Sniper Ghost Warrior 3 patch 1.2 is a hefty one, in-keeping with its sizeable download. It features listed improvements to animations, gameplay, graphics, UI, and a whole lot more. Have a read of what’s changed in the full list, below. No sign of a toggle for chromatic aberration yet, sadly.
