When you pre-order Hitman: Absolution at zavvi.com – on either Xbox 360 or Playstation 3 – you’ll receive a free code that will allow you to play Hitman: Sniper Challenge from this coming Tuesday. If you pre-order the PC version, Sniper Challenge will be available to download from the 1st of August. Here’s a bit more about it…
Hitman: Sniper Challenge is not a part of the main game, but has been created as a bespoke standalone experience to reward fans who pre-order Hitman: Absolution. 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.
Customers who pre-order Hitman: Absolution now will receive their code and be able to play Hitman: Sniper Challenge from May 15 through access to Xbox LIVE or PlayStation Network. The PC version will be made available through Steam from August 1.
Don’t forget that Hitman: Absolution will also be available in a special “Professional” edition. To find out what’s included in that, click here.
Hitman: Absolution is currently due for release on Tuesday, November 20th 2012.
