Most pre-order incentives involve getting some sort of bonus content which can be enjoyed when the game is released. But if you pre-order Hitman:Absolution, You get to play Hitman: Sniper Challenge straight away. Special!
As a standalone reward for pre-ordering Hitman: Absolution, Hitman: Sniper Challenge will be available from May 15th on XBL and PSN, and August 1st on Steam.
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. Keep an eye on www.Hitmansniper.com for more details.
“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 sneaking into stores, probably dressed as a delivery guy, from November 20th for PS3, Xbox360 and PC.
