Recently announced is the release date for Hitman: Absolution which is going to be November 20, 2012. This just adds onto the upcoming cluster of video games releasing this fall season.
Also with the announcement of the release date is the announcement of some very special pre-order bonuses. Some are quite significantly better than others such as the GameStop pre-order bonus. GameStop pre-orders get a free copy of Hitman Sniper Challenger as seen on the video below, will feature a single mission to take out this guy, Richard Strong Jr., along with his whole crew. You might think this will be easy, but that isn’t the point here. It is a challenge meaning that you are competing for the best score by using multipliers, secrets, and all sorts of exploits to get to the top spot. Square Enix will also be giving out prizes (unknown as to what they are at the moment) to those in the top score each month. So make sure you take out everyone as quickly and skillfully as you can. This will be available May 15th it seems.
The other pre-orders are relatively boring with new suits and a gun attached and those go as listed:
- Amazon – High Tech Suit and Bartoli Custom Pistol
- Wal-Mart – High Roller Suit and the Krugermeier 2-2 Pistol
- Best Buy – Public Enemy Suit and the Bronson M1928 Submachine Gun
