The Tourist

This man is not a member of the police force in the city of Hope. Further investigation has suggested that this person may actually be the renowned assassin, Agent 47, previously thought to be a figment of imagination. Few people believe that this man is real due to the lack of evidence concerning his existence. Indeed, he may not even be considered a true human, as legend states that he has been genetically enhanced and cloned so that he can assassinate his targets with maximum precision. Agent 47 can disguise himself easily and use his surrounding environments to kill his targets without drawing any attention to himself. There are significant concerns regarding this person's involvement in the collision.


The assassin may or may not be responsible for the events that have recently occurred in the city of Hope during the build up to the release of However, he must be traced at all costs.
