Hitman: Absolution pre-order bonus hits the mark

Submitted by on Monday, 14 May 2012No Comment

Hitman: Absolution hits stores on 20 November, 2012 and Square Enix has announced an exceptional bonus for those interested in pre-ordering. Starting 15 May select retailers will grant access to a unique standalone sniping experience known as Hitman: Sniper Challenge.

Take control of Agent 47 perched high above a rooftop party tasked with eliminating Richard Strong, Jr. and a plethora of his bodyguards to score the most points. Earn multipliers by eliminating targets with skilled shots. Global online leaderboards will challenge players to achieve high scores.

Hitman: Sniper Challenge is packed with secret extras and unlockable weapon upgrades adding to the replay value. Everything earned and upgraded can even be imported into Hitman: Absolution. GameStop further glorifies the Hitman: Sniper Challenge with news of monthly prizes and the top sniper’s likeness included in the next Hitman title.

Take a look at the other retailer specific pre-order offers below and keep an eye on for more information on this bonus PSN download.

Pre-orders through will receive the Bartoli custom pistol and high tech suit, which combine to increase armor up to 50% and take down long-ranged targets with added stealth.

Walmart pre-orders come with a bonus Krugermeier 2-2 pistol. The Krugermeier 2-2 is loaded with 10 rounds and a silencer, perfect for maintaining stealth during short range take downs.

The GameStop pre-order bonus unlocks the Kazo sniper rifle.

A Best Buy pre-order image reveals the Bronson 1928M SMG, but the product page does not yet reflect this bonus.
