The person crowned 'The UK's Ultimate Assassin' in Square Enix's Hitman: Sniper Challenge will be immortalised in a future Hitman game and also presented with a Golden Joystick at this year's awards, the publisher's announced. Honestly, I can't wait to shoot (in the game, of course) the guy who beat my score!
Square Enix started the competition to find the top UK sniper last month. Over 35 million kills already have been racked up across the daily, weekly and monthly challenges. All Monthly winners will eventually have the chance to battle it out in a Grand Final and be crowned the UK's Ultimate Assassin. Jon Brooke, Brand Director of the Hitman Franchise, said:
"Hitman: Sniper Challenge has been an extremely successful pre-order incentive for us,"
"We're really excited to be able to offer one fan a once in a lifetime prize and The Golden Joysticks is the perfect partner to showcase the Ultimate Assassin's achievement."
