Hello again, everyone! Alex007X here. Another week has passed, but this week is not an ordinary one. IO Interactive finally revealed Hitman: Absolution release date! It is November 20, so mark your calendar now. After that, read our newest The Daily Hitman!
Hitman: Absolution and Hitman: Sniper Challenge release date
Not just that, IOI also unveiled Hitman: Sniper Challenge, a game we once mentioned before back in January. It is, like its name suggest, a sniper game where 47's objective is to shoot Richard Strong, Jr and his bodyguards with his trusty Agency Kazo TRG sniper rifle. The game comes complete with leaderboard feature and integration with Absolution (all your equipment upgrades can be transferred to Absolution once it comes out).
It would arrive only on PS3 and Xbox 360 as GameStop pre-order bonus for Absolution, on May 15. However, if for some reasons you are unable to pre-order it, pre-ordered from another retailer, or an avid PC gamer, IOI told us that they are trying to release it for PC via Steam on August 1.
Well, now, you have three dates to look after. Mark your calendars, agents. Oh, by the way, did you know that May 10, 2011 was also the day of the unveiling and release of the first teaser trailer of Absolution?
