Time’s up for our media assassins – now it's your turn, retailers.
MCV and Square Enix is looking for the UK games industry's deadliest assassin with our Hitman Sniper Challenge competition. The best performers each month will win a 16Gb Wi-Fi iPad 2 and a 10" Agent 47 statue.
The second and third prize is the 10" statue. A 2" version will be given to the rest of the Top Ten – and let's not forget our secret star prize for the Ultimate Assassin, which will be decided in September.
July was our Media league. We’ll be totting up the final scores and bringing you the winners of our Media league next week, but it’ll take a special kind of killer to top the score of Future’s Iain Wilson: a whopping 4.7 million points. You can see how he did it by watching the video below.
Wilson and other deadly media professionals will be back in December as we seek the UK games industry’s deadliest assassin. The current leaders can be seen in the score table below.
