In true Agent 47 fashion, the latest entry in the Hitman franchise has snuck its way onto mobile devices with little to no warning. Hitman: Sniper, Square Enix Montreal's follow-up to the excellent Hitman GO, is now available to download on iOS and Android devices.
Set in Montenegro, the title follows Agent 47's attempts to take down the Conclave, an Eastern-European network of criminals. Sniper, as the title suggests, is a fixed-position sniping game driven by competitive leaderboards. With over 100 assignments available, players will have to get creative with a variety of rifles and abilities in order to take down their targets.
In 2014, Hitman creator IO-Interactive announced the development of the next core entry in the franchise through an open letter to their fans. Further information has yet to be revealed.
Hitman: Sniper is out today, and can be purchased for £3.99 on the App Store and Google Play.
