Yep, we're in the final stretch of the first phase of the Hitman: Sniper Challenge competition, which means that the first month's grand prize is now less than a week away. Time to polish up your skills for the final push.
The prizes for the whole month of July are corkers, way in excess of the usual (but still great) weekly prizes. How does a 16GB Wi-Fi iPad 2 sound to you? That's one for the winner of the PS3 leaderboard and one for the winner of the Xbox 360 leaderboard. But that's not all. We've also got Sennheiser headphones, premium downloadable content, Hitman goodies and more. If you haven't already entered, enter. If you have entered, then keep poliishing thosescores. The end-of-the-month competitions really when it really counts. But...
We cannot emphasise that enough. If you don't register and link your account, you have zero chance of winning and then you'll be sad.
How do I get involved?
All you need to do is pre-order Hitman Absolution (you can do this here) where you'll receive a code. You must then visit www.hitmansniper.com where you can enter that code in order to receive the redeem code to download Hitman Sniper Challenge from Xbox Live Arcade or PlayStation Network. PC owners will be able to download Hitman Sniper Challenge from August 1, so our league table for PC opens next month - you'll just have to have the patience of Agent 47 and wait patiently for your moment!
Remember, for your score to count, you MUST register your Gamertag/PSN ID at www.hitmansniper.com and you MUST “link your account” at hitmansniper.com/leaderboards in order to be eligible! Please note, you must also be over 18 and a resident of the UK.
Once you've signed up... get sniping! Simple as that. Keep checking GamesRadar.com to find out who wins at the end of July, as well as the winner of our weekly challenge. Best of luck.
