Square Enix Ltd. has today announced the official release of Hitman: Sniper Challenge, an exclusive standalone pre-order sniper experience available to play from the moment customers pre-order their copy of Hitman: Absolution. The Hitman: Sniper Challenge experience is available now on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and coming soon to PC.
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 capitalise 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 leaderboard 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. Hitman: Absolution is scheduled for global release on November 20th 2012 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360 and Windows PC, and Electronic Theatre will keep you updated with all the latest details.
