Earlier this month at PAX we got a look at Contracts mode in the upcoming HITMAN: ABSOLUTION. Today IO Interactive’s Tore Blystad and Travis Barbour give us a tour of the new contracts mode that everyone can watch!
Yesterday we had the chance to attend the Hitman: Absolution Gameplay Demo panel at PAX 2012! We got a look at the newly announced contracts mode which will give the players alternative targets to assasinate as they progress through the campaign.
After you complete a section of the game, you then have the opportunity to go back through it and create your own contracts. This doesn’t involve some type of odd level-building type system, you simply play the game in the way you want the contract requirements to be set. It makes it easy to construct and reassures players that they aren’t attempting the impossible.
The Barcode Society is a new website run by IO Interactive to give fans of the Hitman series a place for any and all information about their favorite bald assasian. The site will feature behind the scenes access with developers and insights into the process behind the development of the Hitman games.
Fans will also be able to join the official forums and comment on blog posts. The site is scheduled to be updated weekly with new stories, vintage assets, community features and more!
E3 is an exciting time and Gamer Escape has boots on the ground out in Los Angeles, California, bringing you all the latest news about games that you care about.
Last night, we were able to check in with members of our staff out at E3, Ganiman, Gahoo and Fusionx, and get news about all the latest games at E3 straight from the men who got to play them. Our Gamer Escape staff members were treated to a tour of the Square-Enix booth and got to check out awesome new games like Final Fantasy XIII-2, Hitman: Absolution, Deus Ex: Human Revolution, Dead Island, Heroes of Run and much more.
Take a listen to Gamer Escape’s E3 Day 1 wrap up. We have more of these to come as the convention continues, so check back often for the latest updates.
Gamer Escape was invited to see a pre-alpha build demo of Hitman: Absolution today at E3 – and after regaining our composure all we can say is “wow!” Well – maybe we can say a bit more. Agent 47 is of course back for this fifth installment in the Hitman series, set for release in 2012.
