The IO Interactive team today announced a standalone perk players will receive for pre-ordering Hitman: Absolution. Hitman: Sniper Challenge, while not part of the main game, looks to be quite the charmer on its own! You're tasked with taking out the CEO of Stallion Armaments, along with all of his bodyguards. Score multipliers let skilled players maximize their output, and there are secret extras, unlockable equipment upgrades, and several ways to pull off the mission.
“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.”
Several upgrades obtained in this mission can be carried over into Hitman: Absolution as well, including the high-powered Kazo TRG sniper rifle and a host of others. Players can compare their sniping abilities globally on the online leaderboard, supported by various challenges to determine who has the best sniping skills.
