IO Interactive in adding more BANG for your bucks with the recent announcement Hitman: Sniper Challenge which is an exclusive standalone pre-order sniper experience, available to play from the moment customers pre-order their copy of Hitman: Absolution.
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 fulfill 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.
The Sniper Challenge pre-order promotion will be available starting May 15.
