In the course of its E3 showcase, Sq. Enix dropped a trailer for its new cell title, Hitman Sniper: The Shadows. Initially teased underneath the working title Hitman Sniper Assassins, this recreation is about to launch on Android and iOS as a free-to-play title later in 2021.
The sport is the sequel to the Hitman Sniper cell title that launched in 2015. In that recreation you (as Agent 47) have been tasked with sniping a goal from a protected vantage level, and utilizing your powers of statement to be sure to did in order rapidly and discreetly as attainable. There is not any gameplay within the trailer, however we will presume it’s going to be much like the earlier title.
The trailer reveals a sniper taking a shot from an unbelievable distance, and he is finally joined on his perch by 4 different snipers, all carrying their weapons. Whereas Diana makes an look (properly, vocal look), Agent 47 is nowhere to be seen. As a substitute, the snipers on this recreation are members of the titular Shadows, an elite group of assassins.
The story synopsis on the Hitman Sniper website reads: “Agent 47’s whereabouts are unknown. A brand new risk to international stability has emerged. This legal community is chargeable for a collection of violent assaults and crimes around the globe. Diana Burnwood prompts Initiative 426, aka The Shadows, a group of extremely expert assassins. It’s now as much as Soji, Kiya, Kolzak, Knight and Stone to get rid of this risk.”
The web site additionally describes every of the snipers and their particular skills. A few of them make sense: Kolzak has “liquid nitrogen rounds,” which I presume is an ice shot. Some are rather less clear: Knight’s talent is “deliberate hits.” Aren’t these all deliberate hits?
