Usually whenever you pre-order a game the best thing they will offer you is some sort of extra costume or small bonus stage that you can play when the game comes out, or perhaps a poster for those more interested in material bonuses. However it seems that Square Enix and IO Interactive want to raise the bar on what gamers should expect when they pre-order a game.
Today they revealed that those who pre-order Hitman: Absolution from any story will be able to receive the Hitman: Sniper Challenge free of charge after May 16th. The sniper challenge is not a part of the main game but provides a standalone experience that allows gamers to unlock special bonuses for the main game as they snipe out Richard Strong and accumulate points. You can see the Hitman: Sniper Challenge bonus in action in the below trailer.
