Play as globetrotting Agent 47 at the prime of his career — the apex predator stalking his prey across the world, in the brutal stealth action game Hitman. Building a new foundation for the Hitman franchise, you will find Agent 47 here as the aspirational assassin at the absolute peak of his power. As an operative of the International Contract Agency, his job is to take out high-profile targets all over the world, supported by his long-time handler Diana Burnwood.
Each location in the game is a living sandbox, a place where every NPC has a name and every room matters. Players have complete freedom of approach over how, where and when you decide to take out your target. Creativity from players is fully expected — you have the power and intelligence of Agent 47 at your fingertips, and it is your choice whether to use brute force or orchestrate a genuine masterpiece of assassination. An episodic structure for Hitman means an ongoing and evolving game which plays out over the course of a year, with a finale that brings the story arc together. Broadcast contract events add unique and vital missions to the Hitman experience over that time — imagine a target appearing for every player in the world, for a limited time only. Where your one shot counts. And when that target is gone, it is gone forever.
