A new Hitman game has arrived on the mobile platform. Hitman Sniper: The Shadows offer players action, role-playing experience with an original Hitman story. In the game, players take on the role of the Shadows. They need to accept assignments that take them all over the world and bring down targets using stealth.

The story focuses on events that followed the disappearance of Agent 47. It also follows a group of assassins known as The Shadows. The group operates within the hidden world of assassination as a new criminal network that threatens to disrupt global stability.

In a post, Senior Producer Simon Doongoor revealed that from the start, their goal was to offer a high production value Hitman Sniper experience on the mobile platform, not quality graphics but also gameplay. He went on to say that for this game, they wanted it to start something new instead of being a sequel.

Here are the features of this game:

  • Unique Playable Characters
    • The game features six sniper assassins, each one having its own backstories, play styles, personalities, and abilities.
    • This should allow for more freedom and flexibility in how players approach the game and each contract.
    • Each assassin is early enough in their career to give them room to grow. This should give players the chance to turn them into ICA agents.
  • ​New Locations
    • Expect to see new locations, each having different vantage points and times of the day.
    • This gives players more choices and opportunities to eliminate targets.
    • In addition, each location has unique targets and becomes an exploratory environment.
  • Multiple Modes
    • Players are encouraged to manipulate enemies and leverage the environment around them for the perfect shot and are rewarded for their creative kills.
    • 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 fight against other players to build their reputation.
    • Precision and creativity are key to winning contracts in this mode.

The team is also inviting everyone to help the evolution of the game by having a direct line to the dev team as well as players on Discord.

Hitman Sniper: The Shadows is available on Android and iOS.
