For fans of Hitman: Absolution, you’re going to be able to get your hands on the game slightly earlier than you had anticipated. While the release date for the title is still, well, no one knows, you can get your hands on the Hitman: Sniper Challenge starting this week.
How? Well, that’s what we’re here for. An announcement was teased by Square Enix today with the unveil scheduled for May 10th, this Thursday. Thanks to AGB, it’s been uncovered that the Hitman: Sniper Challenge is the upcoming announcement.
The Hitman: Sniper Challenge is a replayable sniper mission for Hitman: Absolution. Pre-ordering the title at Gamestop, for a limited time only, will earn you a code that unlocks the game on your Xbox 360 or Playstation 3.
To give you incentive to play the mission, the top snipers in the Hitman: Sniper Challenge will receive prizes. There aren’t any details as to how many snipers and what those prizes will be, but we’re expecting Square Enix to detail that on Thursday.
