Square Enix Montréal, the award-winning studio has announced that its much anticipated mobile title, Hitman Sniper: The Shadows is now available on Android and iOS devices. This mobile sniper game is an action, role-playing game set in a wholly original Hitman story. Earlier known as Hitman Sniper Assassins, it was rebranded to Hitman Sniper: The Shadows at the E3 2021.
As a member of The Shadows, players will get to embark on globe-trotting assignments. They will be able to take down targets with stealth, engage in fierce competition, and build their reputation as the International Contract Agency (ICA) agents.
Hitman Sniper: The Shadows revolves around the events following the disappearance of Agent 47. This game further follows the story of a group of assassins called The Shadows within the hidden world of assassination where a new criminal network threatens global stability.
Prove your worth as a deadly Sniper
At launch, Hitman Sniper: The Shadows features six sniper assassins, each with their own backstories, play styles, personalities, and abilities. This diversity provides players with more freedom and flexibility in how they approach the game and each contract.
Each assassin is early enough in their careers to allow for a lot of room to grow, giving players the chance to evolve into ICA agents.
Explore new Locations throughout the game
The game features new locations, each with different stand points and times of the day. This will be giving players more choices and opportunities to eliminate targets. Each location has unique targets and becomes an exploratory environment, a distinct storytelling space with distinct challenges.
“We’re all fans of the franchise, so we wanted to ensure that the hidden world of assassination translated into an experience that fulfills both the fantasy and provides a great player experience,” said Audran Guerad, Lead Artist for Hitman Sniper: The Shadows at Square Enix Montréal.
“The cinematographic art direction and the high level of details of our maps offer players the most immersive experience possible. We want to be a reference in the sniper market for visually compelling games,” added Audran.
Enjoy the gameplay with multiple modes available to play
Players will get to manipulate enemies and grasp the environment around them for the perfect shot and are rewarded for their creative skills.
- Players can play in campaign mode to learn about and eliminate targets while mastering their skills.
- The game also features a PvP mode where players compete against other players to build their reputation. Precision and creativity are key to winning contracts in this mode.
“We wanted to give players the familiar adrenaline rush they’d experience watching a big-screen spy or action movie where multiple assassins are competing for the same contract,” stated Simon Doongoor.
