The latest Hitman Absolution trailer finally answers the call many fans have been crying since the original game. The new “Contacts” mode allows gamers to create their own assassination missions of up to three characters in any level and distribute them over the Internet.
Weekly leaderboards will filter out the best assassins as well as the most popular missions, and speedy completions of difficult jobs will unlock new weapons and disguises for Agent 47.
The Hitman series has always prided itself on open ended approaches to missions, and now fueled by the imagination of gamers, the limitations are endless as to how to beat these levels. It’s only a matter of time before the user generated content overtakes the actual campaign missions and Square Enix begins releasing map packs and new tools for customization, just like every other triple-A franchise on the market. I can see it now…
Hitman Absolution will be released on Nov. 20 for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3 and PC.
