Update (8/21 7:55am): Ok it’s back folks! the below Hitman: Sniper deal is once again available on the App Store.
Update (8/20 2:05pm): Hitman: Sniper is now oddly “unavailable”. The Hitman: Sniper listing has seemingly disappeared on the App Store. We will update this post when we know more.
After being beta tested outside the US on the App Store and then being fully released stateside back at the beginning of June, Hitman: Sniper is getting its very first drop on the App Store today. Regularly listed at $4.99, you can now download the game to all your iOS devices for $2.99. It has so far received a 4.5/5 star rating from over 2,600 reviewers.
Continuing the mobile side of things for the stealth-assassin franchise after the excellent Hitman: Go, Sniper changes the formula up to offer over 150 Agent 47-style sniper missions. Anyone who played the Sniper Challenge for Absolution will be right at home here. Speaking of Absolution, it is also on sale today for Mac:
One of the “Best Games of 2014” in the “Mac App Store Best of 2014”, Absolution is a Mac port of the full console release. Today you can grab the Elite Edition on Mac for $9.99, matching the lowest we have seen it go for on the Mac App Store. It currently sells for $25 on Steam and Amazon.
Absolution Elite Edition “ contains all previously released add-on content, including Hitman: Sniper Challenge – a standalone hit that challenges you to pull off audacious kills and cover your tracks using only your sharpshooting skills.” Agent 47 returns in a series of new assassin missions along with new disguises, “accidental” kills, and more:
Become Agent 47, a genetically-engineered killer, and use your skill and ingenuity to turn assassination into an art. With extraordinary reflexes, creative stealth techniques and a powerful arsenal of weapons at your fingertips, pulling off the perfect hit has never been so much fun.
