While revealing yet another pre-order incentive for the studio’s upcoming stealth-action game, Hitman Absolution, IO Interactive and Square Enix have additionally announced a global release date for the title.
November 20th is when we can expect Hitman Absolution to hit store shelves around the world across Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC platforms!
While your run about the place marking every calendar you can find, learn a bit about the Hitman Absolution’s latest pre-order incentive, the standalone Sniper Challenge, which is an entirely separate story-based game mode:
Hitman: Sniper Challenge Announcement Trailer
“Following an entirely separate story, but built using the same impressive Glacier 2 engine that IO Interactive developed for Hitman Absolution, Sniper Challenge see’s Agent 47 overlooking a roof-top party from the balcony of an opposing building,” Square Enix tells us.
“Your mark is Richard Strong, Jr., the CEO of Stallion Armaments, but his entourage will make this far from easy. Players will have to take out his bodyguards with the high-powered Agency Kazo TRG sniper rifle, aiming to make the most of score multipliers, secrets, and unlockable equipment upgrades.
“This is an amazing amount of fun,” writes Square Enix, “with tonnes of replay value, but it doesn’t end there; compete with friends on our global leaderboards and take the Kazo TRG and your weapon techniques with you, over to Hitman: Absolution.”
Sniper Challenge codes can be redeemed from May 15th over Xbox LIVE and PlayStation Network, and from August 1st on PC.
