Square Enix Montreal has announced free-to-play Hitman: Sniper coming out for mobile and tablet later on this year.
The studio stated,
“We’ve designed Hitman: Sniper to be a massively competitive sniping game that will focus on the subtlety of execution. You’ll need to have your wits about you to complete scenario-driven contracts that contain a number of targets and assignments.
“Each one is designed to have a high level of replayability, not only to fine-tune your approach but to explore creative alternatives and to achieve the ultimate score on the leaderboards.”
Although Hitman: Sniper will be available free of charge, optional in-app purchases will be made available for players in order to “customize their own game experience.”
“For instance, you can get early access to contracts, or upgrade your sniper rifle – all things you can earn through playing the game. It’s up to you which one you choose and the game won’t force you down a particular route.
“By making Hitman: Sniper available for free, it will allow more people to have immediate access and increase the level of competition, which is at the core of the game.”
More details will be revealed during E3 next week in Los Angeles.
