Hitman Sniper, the acclaimed mobile title, is finally getting a sequel. While Square Enix announced the sequel to its shooter game at last year’s E3, the developer has now released Hitman Sniper: The Shadows for both Android and iOS platforms.

YouTube influencers have been posting hours of video clips to give players a good idea of the gameplay. The new game doesn’t feature Agent 47, but instead features six different snipers, each with unique skills. Each sniper’s weapon and stats can be upgraded with progression, allowing players to levitate with each individual assassin. PocketGamer points out that it is up to The Shadows agents to investigate the disappearance of 47 and restore global stability.

In addition to shooting at targets, players can use their guns to activate traps, not just stalk their prey. Players have the option to try a unique PvP mode and have a chance to earn rewards, or they can opt for a full campaign.

Commenting on their vision, Simon Doongoor, Senior Producer for Hitman Sniper: The Shadows at Square Enix Montréal said: “From the beginning, our goal has been to deliver a Hitman Sniper experience on mobile with high production value in terms of quality graphics and gameplay. We wanted this game to be the start of something new rather than a sequel. That vision gave us the freedom to go in a different direction, like launching The Shadows, and allowed us to create a deeper gaming experience for players.”
In addition to new agents, players can expect new locations with vantage points, giving players room to hone their skills and shoot down unsuspecting enemies. As the game relies on PvP gameplay, Story Mode expands the chance to level up skills and earn gear. Since each level involves some sort of puzzle, immense precision is required to earn points and rewards in the game. Hitman Sniper: The Shadows doesn’t have controller support, though it does come with touch controls that early birds have criticized as clunky. The game can be downloaded for free on the App Store and Google Play Store. Have you tried the game yet? Share your experience in the comments section.
