Hitman: Absolution Gets November Release Date

Hitman: Absolution has a release date. The sneaky murder and baldness simulator hits stores on November 20th.
The news came as the game's mysterious countdown clock reached zero, revealing not only the release date but also confirming the Sniper Challenge outed on Tuesday. We already knew about it, of course, but now there's a new video to accompany it, so that's always nice. Plus, it takes the piss out of Assassin's Creed. Watch right until the end.
Sniper Challenge is a "standalone pre-order sniper experience," exclusive to GameStop in North America and, well, just about everywhere (Amazon, ShopTo, Play.com etc) in the UK. What that means in English is that if you pre-order the game from May 15th, you'll be able to access a standalone sniper mission that you can play immediately. Succeed in-game and you'll unlock various in-game perks usable in Hitman: Absolution itself.
The game does not carry any Trophies. Vid's below.
