Tomorrow’s July 1st Euro 2012 final between Spain and Italy will see the first Hitman Absolution trailer debuted, developer Square Enix has revealed.
The trailer, which will debut during ITV’s coverage of the football showpiece, will run 60 seconds in length and offer a tantalising insight into the stealth action game that is set to compete with the likes of Call of Duty: Black Ops 2, FIFA 13 and the new Halo offering as the year’s most popular gaming release.
"The first TV advert for a game as anticipated as Hitman Absolution needs to be a big spot in a big event," said UK marketing director Jon Brooke. "So we're excited about our one off 60-second creative in the Euro Championship Final it’s our commitment that alongside groundbreaking announcements like Sniper Challenge we will back Hitman Absolution to be a top five game for Q4. The advert will also be available to watch online at YouTube.com/Hitman from the 2nd July."
With a Hitman Absolution UK release date set for November 20th, Square Enix is offering all gamers who pre-order the upcoming title a free copy of the Hitman Sniper Challenge to play immediately.
