Hitman: Absolution in stores today
Newest entry in the stealth action series arrives
Square Enix and IO Interactive today announced that Hitman: Absolution is now available in North America.
Hitman: Absolution follows Agent 47, a cold-blooded assassin, who takes on his most dangerous contract to date. Betrayed by those he once trusted — and now hunted by the police — he suddenly finds himself at the center of a dark conspiracy and must embark on a personal journey through a corrupt and twisted world.
“Hitman: Absolution marks the culmination of years of hard work, belief and determination from many involved with IO Interactive and Square Enix," said Jon Brooke, Brand Director.
Absolution also introduces Contracts, a new online mode which allows gamers to create and share their own custom hit challenges within the game. They choose a level, targets, weapons and then set rules for completing the contract based on time, style and witnesses. As an asynchronous mode, players can compete against friends at any time. Upon accepting and successfully completing a contract, players will be rewarded in contract dollars which they can use to purchase weapons, disguises, upgrades, and techniques.
Hitman: Absolution is available for PC, Xbox 360, and PlayStation 3.
