Did you get that? You're all set for this week's HITMAN Elusive Target then? You didn't? Because it's just a line of gibberish? Okay, maybe this image will help:


Oops, that's all blurred out and encrypted too. Oh well, at least the date is readable in both formats. HITMAN's next Elusive Target is arriving on Friday, August 26th at 5 a.m. PT and will be available for 72 hours. Io-Interactive is continuing their goal of making the targets more intriguing than simply "go to that place; kill that person." First they had The Twin, then there was Gary Busey (yes, there really was Gary Busey), as well as the additional objective in The Broker.

This week it's a bit of a mystery. All the information we've already given you is all that Io has given players so far. We don't know their name, what they look like or even which city they'll be located in. Maybe it will be Bangkok, as it's the newest location. Perhaps more details will be given in the briefing videos that appear on the HITMAN YouTube Channel when the targets go live, or maybe the helpful Diana will give us some in-game hints to go on. We'll have to wait until Friday to find out.
