Hitman’s 10th Elusive Target, The Pharmacist, will be available September 16th. They’ll be in Paris for a week, which is plenty of time to plan an awesome approach and then forget one minor detail and bungle the whole thing (not that I would do that, obviously).
It’s the middle of the day, and I’ve spent the last couple of hours trying to figure out how to kill this stupid cameraman. You’d think it would be easy, but I have to make it look like an accident and I can’t harm the newswoman he’s working with. Much harder than it sounds.
Hitman Episode 5, “Freedom Fighters,” will be released on September 27th. The episode takes place in Colorado and features four targets.
It’s still hot, and it’s still summer! It’s also the weekend. What are you gonna be playing? Video games? Board games? A knock-off Fender that you found in a hotel room while on an assassination contract?
In the newest Hitman level, there’s this guy. He’s smoking a cigarette and taking in the view, reminiscing about what sounds like the grimmest safari ever.
Hitman’s next Elusive Target will be available August 26 for 72 hours. This one seems pretty, well, elusive.
Hitman’s latest episode, Bangkok, returns to the ostentatious locations of the series’ previous installments. While Marrakesh was largely brown and yellow straightforward stealth, Episode 4’s Himmapan Hotel is bursting with color, alternate paths, interesting guests, and creative ways to take out your targets.
No Trace looks like Hitman meets Hotline Miami. It’s a stealth assassination game with disguises and gadgets, but it’s also got slick, blink-and-you’re-dead top-down combat. It’ll be out later this year.
Hitman’s next Elusive Target arrives August 5 and will be available for 72 hours. Players have to assassinate a target and retrieve an item.
Hitman’s seventh Elusive Target, Gary Busey (voted on through the ‘Choose Your Hit’ campaign) will be available July 21st in Sapienza. Players will have a full week to attempt the target.
Hitman’s next Elusive Target, The Twin, will appear in Sapienza for 72 hours on July 15. IO has also introduced an app that will let you know when Elusive Targets are live, along with other news and updates.
I love the Elusive Targets in Hitman. There have been five Elusive Contracts since the game’s launch, and after failing the fourth one, I decided to do extensive reconnaissance work and pre-planning for the fifth target. This time, I would be ready for anything. Here are the results.
Hitman’s fifth Elusive Target, The Gunrunner, will be available in Marrakesh for 72 hours starting July 1st. You can check Io’s blog for your local start and end times.
Hitman’s fourth Elusive Target, The Sensation, is still active in Paris. This time you have 53 hours to give the mission a go.
Hitman is getting a special “Summer Bonus Episode” on July 19. Two new missions will take players back to Sapienza and Marrakesh, respectively, this time after the sun has set. Sapienza will be all set up for a sci-fi movie shoot and will feature “a crazy giant killer robot.” Sounds cool. More details here.
Hitman’s third Elusive Target, the Prince, will appear on Wednesday, June 8, at 6 AM PT/ 3 PM CEST. This time, players will have 72 hours to complete the mission, which is set in Sapienza.
In anticipation of Hitman’s third episode, I spent the past weekend doing pretty much nothing but playing Hitman. I beat the new Elusive Target with a much better score than last time.
