IO Interactive, a Square Enix studio, today announced the launch of the Hitman: Sniper Challenge PC version.
This exclusive standalone pre-order sniper game is available to play from the moment customers pre-order their copy of Hitman: Absolution at GameStop and recieve their code.
“IO is fully committed to delivering a PC version of Hitman: Absolution that lives up to the high standards of our PC community,” said Jon Brooke, brand director of the Hitman Franchise. “Hitman: Sniper Challenge will give them a first taste of what’s to come.”
Players who download and install the Hitman: Sniper Challenge are automatically entered into monthly drawings for prizes. An online leaderboard allows players to compare their sniping abilities, keeping the stakes high through launch.
Square Enix plans to showcase the PC version of Absolution for the first time at Gamescom 2012 in Cologne Germany.
Hitman: Absolution is scheduled for global release on November 20, 2012 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Windows PC.
