Square Enix today announced the grand prize for the Hitman: Sniper Challenge competition in the UK. The person crowned The UK’s Ultimate Assassin will be immortalized in a future Hitman game and also presented with a Golden Joystick at Future Publishing’s annual Golden Joystick Awards on October 26, 2012.
With Agent 47s around the globe having racked up over 35 million kills playing Hitman: Sniper Challenge, the competition to find the top UK sniper is now live with gamers competing for daily, weekly and monthly prizes. All Monthly winners will have the chance to battle it out in a Grand Final and be crowned the UK’s Ultimate Assassin.
“It’s an honour to partner with such a hotly anticipated title as Hitman: Absolution and provide the platform for this amazing prize. The awards are usually presented to publishers and developers only, so it’s exciting to be able to celebrate the talents of a sharp-shooting gamer too,” said James Kick, Associate Publisher, The Golden Joystick Awards.
