Agent 47 will make his triumphant return (we certainly hope it is) by the 20th of November 2012 across the Xbox360, PS3 and PC when Hitman: Absolution hits stands worldwide. If you pre-order the game by the 15th of May 2012 (which is when pre-orders begin), you’ll gain access to a standalone sniping game called the Hitman: Sniper Challenge immediately across both Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network. If you go in for the PC version, you’ll have to wait till the 1st of August which is when Sniper Challenge will be available on Steam.
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 weapons and upgrades you unlock in Sniper Challenge will get carried forward to Absolution as well.
