was announced for Hitman: Absolution
, many feared tacked on deathmatch-style gameplay action that would ill-fit the sneaky habits of Agent 47. The folks at IO INteractive have released a behind-the-scenes
video which hopefully dispelled some of those fears.
The multiplayer mode, named Contracts, is a new online mode which allows gamers to create and share their own custom hit challenges within the Hitman: Absolution
game. Players will choose a level, targets, weapons and then set their own rules for completing the contract based on time, style and witnesses. Contracts allows fans to compete against friends at any time, regardless of whether they are online. The game will also ship with many pre-set Contracts, each designed by the most devious minds in the development team.
is due to be released worldwide on November 20th.
