In early May 2012 it was announced that I.O. Interactive would be releasing a downloadable mini-game called Hitman Sniper Challenge for people who pre-order Hitman: Absolution. Aside from competing for leaderboard high scores, the game allows players to unlock a sniper rifle called "Silenced Agency Kazo TRG" and 12 other weapon techniques that carry over into Hitman: Absolution.
The game was later included with any purchase of Hitman: Absolution on Steam or in the Hitman HD Trilogy; in the case of the latter, the unlockables are unable to be transferred to any other game.
