IO Interactive have announced a new online mode titled ‘Contracts’ for their upcoming title, Hitman: Absolution.
Contracts is a new online mode which lets players create and share their own custom hit challenges within the game. Players will choose a level, targets, weapons and set their rules on completing the contract which is based on time, style and witnesses. It comes as an asynchronous mode and players can compete against friends at any time regardless of if they are online. The game will come with many pre-set contracts which have been designed by the very best assassins at IO Interactive.
Once accepting and then successfully completing the contact, players will be rewarded with contract dollars with the amount based on how well they did. In order to create more elaborate and creative setups, the player can choose from a vast arsenal of weapons, disguises, upgrades, and techniques; all of which can be unlocked by either playing through the story mode or by spending contract dollars.
Christian Elverdam, gameplay director for HITMAN: ABSOLUTION stated:
“CONTRACTS was inspired by our loyal and extremely creative fans, many of whom are still finding new and amazing ways of taking out targets in previous Hitman games. CONTRACTS mode finally delivers a way for Hitman players to fully realize both their creativity and competitive nature. Whether they’re fighting to shave off a split second from their time or combining elements and timing events to create unprecedented accidental deaths, gamers can now challenge and inspire each another with an endless variety of user-generated contracts.”
