When Square Enix and IO Interactive release Hitman: Absolution -- sometime in 2012, last we heard -- super-fans will be able to pony up a little more scratch in exchange for a bonus-packed Professional Edition version of the game. How much more this package will cost isn't clear, but there are a good amount of actual and virtual extras to pick over.
The Hitman: Absolution Professional Edition will come packed inside of a clamshell case that contains a hardbound art book and a behind-the-scenes doc. You'll also receive a DLC code that unlocks access to a couple of extra weapons: the Agency Jagd P22G pistol (silenced), the Agency HX UMP SMG, and the Agency SPS 12 semi-automatic shotgun. Stay tuned for pricing. And hopefully, eventually, an actual release date.
