Hitman Absolution includes Contracts multiplayer mode
During Gamescom 2012, IO Interactive revealed a new multiplayer mode for Hitman Absolution known as Contracts.
Players will be able to create their own scenarios, targeting any three characters on a level with a weapon of their choice. The competitive side comes into play, when other players try to complete the contract in less time and for more money.
As an example, we see Agent 47 trying to get away from a group of cops, it is now possible to make an original kill scenario. Players take out a target, choosing a specific weapon. Then they can do that to two other characters, then escape the scenario – and upload that to the contracts server. It certainly sounds like a unique gameplay experience.
Contracts will be weekly and money earned from them can be used to start scenarios with weapons and disguises. For example, if you know a specific costume helps you blend in a certain level, you’ll be able to start the level wearing it to reduce time.
You can try the mode out at Gamescom, if you were lucky enough to get there.
