Know somebody who might be like this game?

Hitman is a single player stealth video game played from a third person perspective. What’s the game all about? Well the clue is in the title really! You step into the big shoes of Agent 47, a genetically enhanced assassin who works for the mysterious International Contracts Agency (aka ICA). Agent 47 is tasked with travelling to some beautiful international locations to do some, well……. not so beautiful things. That is unless you consider the art of killing beautiful (we’re not here to judge)!

If however, you DO so happen to find it an artform, then you’re going to LOVE Hitman! Fundamentally because there’s so much scope to be creative when it comes to taking out your target. You could use a sniper rifle from the top of a bell tower to get the kill from distance. Or you could kick the front door in and go all guns blazing. Or perhaps you’re more of a fan of sneaking up behind your target and slitting their throat with a knife. Whatever floats your boat (did we mention Hitman isn’t for the faint-hearted)! If none of these take your fancy, then there’s always the option to don a disguise to mix things up. Dress up as a chef, doctor or (our personal favourite) a yoga instructor, to get into those tricky places – sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do to get the job done right?!

The maps in Hitman are “six to seven times larger” than in the previous game Hitman: Absolution (according to the development team) so there’s plenty to explore. The Game of the Year edition was also released in Nov 2017 which includes the whole first season, a new mission and a cosmetics pack that are both exclusive to the edition. So what are you waiting for? Get your assassination on!
