Square Enix has revealed that the winner of the Hitman: Sniper Challenge will be immortalised in a future Hitman game.
As of tomorrow (August 1st) PC owners who have pre-purchased Hitman: Absolution will be able to download Hitman: Sniper Challenge through Steam.
Hitman: Sniper Challenge has been created as a bespoke standalone experience to reward fans who pre-order Absolution. Online leader boards allow players to compare their sniping abilities with players around the world, supported by various challenges to determine who has the best sniping skills.
Skilled players will capitalise on score multipliers, discover secret extras, unlock equipment upgrades and marvel at the many creative ways one can discreetly dispose of a body while they work to fulfil their contract in the most efficient way possible.
As well as being immortalised in a future game, the person crowned ‘The UK’s Ultimate Assassin’ will also be presented with a Golden Joystick at Future Publishing’s annual Golden Joystick Awards on October 26th.
“Hitman: Sniper Challenge has been an extremely successful pre-order incentive for us,” said Jon Brooke, brand director of the Hitman Franchise. “We’re really excited to be able to offer one fan a once in a lifetime prize and The Golden Joysticks is the perfect partner to showcase the Ultimate Assassin’s achievement.”
Hitman: Absolution is due for global release on November 20th, check out the trailer below:
