Square Enix Montreal Announces Free Holiday Update for Hitman: Sniper and “Hitman Essentials” iOS Game Bundle

Players Get a “Merry Hitmas” with Festive Update

Square Enix Montréal today released a new free holiday-themed update for its competitive mobile shooter, Hitman: Sniper on the App Store (coming to Android soon). The free Sniper DLC, titled “Merry Hitmas” includes festive new weaponry, challenges, decor and music. The award-winning studio also announced a “Hitman Essentials” iOS game bundle, which includes both Hitman: Sniper and Hitman GO for $5.99 USD, available on the iOS App Store for a limited time only.

Hitman: Sniper’s new “Merry Hitmas” update brings the holiday spirit to Montenegro, with presents and seasonal decorations scattered throughout the city. The update also introduces “The Merry Maker” - a new sniper rifle that shoots a variety of festive ammunition. From bullets that freeze NPCs to death before shattering them into pieces, to deadly presents that lure NPCs in before delivering a deadly explosion, this new rifle is a merry addition to Agent 47’s in-game arsenal.

Hitman GO was honored for Best Game Design and Best iOS Game in the 2014 Canadian Videogame Awards, and Hitman: Sniper has followed suit, recently winning the award for Best Technology in 2015.
