Hitman: Sniper Challenge Confirmed

Square Enix have confirmed that they will offer acess to a free standalone game called Hitman Sniper Challenge to all gamers that preorder Hitman Absolution from 15th May onwards.

They have also released a trailer showing off exactly what you’ll get in this unprecedented package:

From a balcony overlooking a roof-top party, you are tasked with taking out Richard Strong, Jr., CEO of Stallion Armaments, along with his entire staff of bodyguards. Skilled players will capitalize on score multipliers, discover secret extras, unlock equipment upgrades, and marvel at the many creative ways one can discretely dispose of a body while they work to fulfil their contract in the most efficient way possible.   

The high-powered Kazo TRG sniper rifle and a host of other upgrades can be unlocked and carried over into HITMAN: ABSOLUTION. Also an online leader board will allow players to compare their sniping abilities with players around the world, supported by various challenges to determine who has the best sniping skills.

“Agent 47 is the best in the business so it seemed appropriate to create the best pre-order reward possible for our fans,” said Jon Brooke, Brand Director of the Hitman Franchise. “HITMAN: SNIPER CHALLENGE is a way of thanking customers and giving them a taste of Agent 47’s skills from the moment they pre-order the game.”

Hitman Absolution will be available on 20th November in the UK on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC. Stay tuned for more details as we get closer to the game’s release date.
