A full-page commercial in the latest issue of Game Informer magazine has outed Hitman: Sniper Challenge, a score-based accompaniment to the upcoming Hitman: Absolution.

The additional mission will be available to anyone that pre-orders the upcoming stealth title from US retailer GameStop. It’s unclear what the mode will entail, but the advertisement plays up the “replayable” nature of the bonus. We’re guessing it’ll be an arcade shooting gallery set in the Absolution engine.

IO teased over the weekend that it had a massive announcement to share this week. It looks like the developer’s been comfortably beaten.

Hitman: Absolution is set to sneak onto PlayStation 3 later this year.
