Square Enix has issued a press release outlining what is possibly the most awesome pre-order bonus ever. Any North American gamers who have ordered Hitman: Absolution through GameStop will have immediate access (starting Tuesday, May 15th) to a stand-alone downloadable title called Hitman: Sniper Challenge — a mission tracked by online leaderboards in which players can compete for real-life prizes.
