If you intend to pick up Hitman: Absolution in November, you should probably pre-order.

If you put your deposit on the highly anticipated title at GameStop, and you're a PowerUp Rewards member, you will automatically be entered in the Hitman: Absolution Life of an Assassin sweepstakes.

No, this doesn't mean you'll accept murder contracts; it just means you'll get an awesome trip to Europe. The winner of this sweepstakes will head overseas with a friend and experience the glitzy, high-octane existence of a professional hitman. This means you'll get to practice your driving by hitting The Ring racetrack in Nuremberg, jump out of a plane over Zurich, and receive a slick custom-tailored suit in Rome. Oh, and as a ho-hum bonus, you'll also get a code for a standalone sniper experience and the Agency Kazo TRG sniper rifle. It's "ho-hum" by comparison, obviously.

Just make sure you read all the sweepstakes rules first. There are a few things you should know; for instance, you can't get all tricky. You can't pre-order to enter and then come back a few days later and cancel. No, you gotta pick the game up when it arrives. But it's worth it for a shot at Europe, yes? C'mon, the game should be great.

No.

But that trip would be sweet. Am I weird for thinking the tailored suit would be the best part?

Does anyone actually win these so called "sweepstakes"? They never announce a winner. It only makes you wonder if they do this only to gain more pre-orders and not give out any prices.

Nope, I don't think they do.

Well, if this prize had been for the PUR's players "Epic sweeps of the month", then they do have a click-able button to show off the Epic winners, but only long after each month's contest is over.

*Edit* But after just checking my PUR Pro account, it is not.

But I think I'd want this month's GS Epic rewards contest even more…..

Assassin's Creed 3's contest

All-expense paid trip for winner & 1 guest to Boston,
Guided Tour of the Freedom trail,
Prime seats to a red Sox game & tour of Fenway Park,
& a special guest dinner at The Bell In Hand Tavern.
