If you still haven’t put in your pre-order for the upcoming Hitman: Absolution, Square Enix just announced three more reasons for you to put down your hard-earned cash and guarantee yourself a launch-day copy. While Gamestop is absent from the list, three big-box stores will get additional pre-order incentives on top of the ones that were previously announced.
According to Square Enix’s press release:
“The publisher of SQUARE ENIX interactive entertainment products in the Americas, today announced exclusive suits as additional pre-order items for HITMAN: ABSOLUTION. These suits, with in-game guns to match, make the perfect addition to the Original Assassin’s ever-changing wardrobe. Customers who pre-order Hitman: Absolution at the following retailers will receive the following:
Amazon: High Tech Suit and Batoli Custom Pistol – The advanced High Tech suit provides Agent 47 with 50% increased armor paired with the Bartoli Custom, an engineered precision weapon, complete with sight and silencer.
Best Buy: Public Enemy Suit and the Bronson M1928 submachine gun – The Original Assassin can dress in a stylish Public Enemy gangster suit armed with the Bronson M1928, a classic submachine gun with high fire rate and deadly stopping power.
Wal-Mart: High Roller Suit and the Krugermeier 2-2 Pistol – The High Roller suit dresses Agent 47 in a fancy tuxedo discreetly outfitted with the Krugermeier, an accurate, reliable stealth weapon with a built-in silencer.”
I don’t know about you, but I want that tuxedo – even if it means braving a Wal-Mart to get it. The different incentives actually complicate things a bit with this title as each one is suited to a different playstyle. Run-and-gun players will probably want to hit up a Best Buy while the Amazon and Wal-Mart incentives favor players who take a more tactical approach. In addition, it sounds like Square Enix has an amazing incentive planned for Gamestop customers that ties in with the previously announced sniper rifle – check back soon for updates.
