Hit Factory: See Hitman's New Contracts Mode In Action


Slowly, ever so slowly, Hitman: Absolution has won me over. I was pretty distraught at how Square-Enix were representing the game: it didn't look stealthy enough, it looked overly linear, and there were sexy hitlady nuns. It felt like one of my favourite series was slipping away. But it seems there was a Hitman game there all along, and the closer we get to release the more interesting it looks. I really enjoyed the Sniper Challenge pre-order level. So I'm happier showing off this trailer for the new 'Contracts' mode, where players get to design their own hits and upload them for friends to complete.


Adam's already had a lot to say about this, so I'll just get in and get out quickly. The Sniper Challenge leaderboards look to be the precursor to this, with a pile of online challenges and interaction resulting in ubnlocks. I do wish they'd figure out some sort of multiplayer mode, but until then this is the closest you'll get.

It's out on November 20th.
