Hitman GO for iOS/Android now available at 60% off: $2 (Reg. $5)

After releasing back in April and receiving a number of near perfect review scores, Hitman GO is available for 60% off right now on iOS and Android. Regularly priced at $4.99, you can pick up the turn-based strategy game for just $1.99. This is not only the lowest price we’ve seen, but the very first discount this highly rated title has received on the App Store.

The game features a unique diorama-like art style and essentially offers a stripped down mobile-take on what made the classic PC and consoles titles so popular. Players will have to infiltrate various locations in order to take out their target using many of the traditional Agent 47 tactics along the way like disguises, distractions, sniper rifles and “even 47’s iconic Silverballers.” Along with various enemy types, the impressively rendered levels feature multiple paths, and players can choose to complete tasks silently or with deadly force.

It looks like Square Enix will be updating the gaming fairly regularly, just last month a new airport chapter was added as well as harder enemies, automated walkways, a skip move feature and a Civilian Mode which allows you to stay undercover until your first move. The game has received 4.5 stars from 2912 Ratings on the App Store and 4.5 stars from over 12,000 on Google Play.
