'Hitman Sniper Challenge' available now, launch trailer - watch

By
Hitman Sniper Challenge is available to download for pre-order customers today.

Users who have pre-ordered Hitman: Absolution will receive a code to download the spinoff, which sees Agent 47 attempt to assassinate Stallion Armaments CEO Richard Strong, Jr from a roof-top building overlooking a party.

To celebrate its launch, Square Enix has released a trailer highlighting the task at hand and some of the inventive ways to eliminate enemies.



Sniper Challenge features global leaderboards and competitions, which can be tracked on the game's official website.

Using an Agency Kazo TRG sniper rifle, which will be transferred to the main game on release, players must take out members of Strong's entourage, search for unlockables and take advantage of score multipliers.

Officially unveiled at last year's E3, Hitman Absolution will include new gameplay features, improved enemy intelligence and a new 'Instinct' mode that will help players blend into certain roles.

Described as the "most ambitious game in the series yet", the stealth title features a "living and breathing world, where every moment can become a story".

IO Interactive told Digital Spy that Hitman Absolution will have a "more personal story" than previous games.

A prequel novel titled Hitman: Damnation will be released alongside the game, penned by former James Bond author Raymond Benson.

Hitman Absolution launches globally for the Xbox 360, PS3 and PC on November 20.
