awesome stuff! I'm excited for the new Hitman

47 looking incredibly 'olyphant' in this video, cool challenge idea.

Posted by CaptainTightPants

Huh, that stuff actually seems like it would increase the longevity of the game. I'm interested.

Man, I need to go back and finish Blood Money.

Pretty good idea, it would be nice if they have online contacts where your friends or random players become the actual contract to kill or Hitman coming after you and others, similar to Assassin's Creed Brotherhood.

Don't know how I feel about online modes in my Hitman. I feel it's breaking away from the source material instead of evolving the game. Feels a bit jammed in there, just do they can say it has an online feature. They also changed his face a bit and I dont dig his dirtier look. I like him pretty clean looking, cause he's a clone.

I guess I'll be grabbing a couple months of Live gold this fall/winter then.

Did you not watch this? This is the next logical step in Hitman, you can create hits, share them, play custom hits etc. Source material? This feature should of been in a long time ago. This isn't just some shitty tacked on multi-player, it's a mode that actually gives the game great re-playability.

People have been doing these custom missions since the first game. Before it was just maps and text posted online, now the game actually supports it. I'd say that this feature has been integral to tons of players for all the Hitman-games, so I think it does feel like a fluid part of the game.

Some people have been convinced this game will be awful and not like the old games from the very first glimpse. Also yeah he's a clone, not a doll, he ages and gets haggard like anyone else.

I keep forgetting I have this pre-ordered. I don't even remember which platform.

Posted by LarryDavis

Couldn't tell what this actually was at first, but once it became clear I think it's a really cool feature. It's really just custom challenge goals for the missions, and would provide a lot of replay value.

When I saw the markers above heads I thought this was gonna be like the craptastic AC Multiplayer or something.

Posted by heavymetalwaffle

I thought this was going to be an Assassin's Creed multiplayer type mode, which I would really enjoy, but this looks awesome too.

Posted by Nightfang

That's pretty cool.

Posted by ballsnbayonets

i wish they wud just jack the assassins creed brotherhood multiplayer

Posted by HerbieBug

Yeah! This makes perfect sense as a Hitman semi-multiplayer feature. Looking forward to it.

Posted by Funky_Pasta_Tommy

Once I get my hands on this game I don't think I'm ever going to stop playing it.

Certainly looks like it will be worth the very long wait since my last 47 fix.

As many people have mentioned before, this kind of replayability has always been available, it's just been self imposed by the player themselves. I've lost count of the times I've re done all the missions after posing various restrictions on myself.

Now the game is just going to support those ideas and make it even more worth the time putting back into the game, plus I am really looking forward to seeing what some other community members can do out there.

Posted by Brodehouse

I read the title and I suddenly imagined an Assassin's Creed style game, where you and other Hitmen have to compete to assassinate randomly generated NPC targets without being spotted by NPC guards (or by each other). You see one Hitman sneaking up on a target, so you silently kill him to take him out of the game for 20 seconds or whatever, then move in on the target yourself. More points for subtle or stylish kills. Etc. Man.

My body is so ready for this.

Posted by sixpin

This game can't come out soon enough. I just finished Blood Money recently (LTTP I know) and it totally has me hyped for this.

Posted by fetchfox

Wow, this is so awesome. Now this is a definite buy.

Posted by MeatSim

This actually seems like a cool online mode and not tacked on or forced.

Posted by Ravenousrattler

hitman is finally becoming the game i always wished it could be

Edited by Darson

This is hot.

Also, it appears you can purchase extra disguises and/or store them to use them in other missions?

Posted by sublime90

yup day 1 purchase here

Posted by elr0y7

User generated missions eh? Sounds like it would add a lot of replay value, but I hope it works out better than it did in Infamous 2. Sure it was fun playing them for a while, but it got old pretty quick.

Posted by Terramagi

This just reminds me of the time I killed EVERYBODY in the Vegas levels without being spotted.

Good times.

Posted by Zombie_Shakespeare

Finally, something that gives me hope again for this game. Glad to see it, even if the explanation of it was a bit vague. It seems like something that could really add to the game. Or something that would get old after an hour.

Posted by onyxghost

Much better than that sexy nun crap.

Posted by bybeach

I still feel they are going to ruin this. Hitman had finesse, but it just wasn't for finesse's sake. Proffessional, controlled, and talented. All aspects of the same thing. Above all,.. controlled. All I see here is stabbing with scissors and some glary eyed motherfucker mucking around in a bad way. he would never show that, not at least publically, like he would never kill without assessing liability.

Not sure.......

Non the less, I loved cutting loose at the end of Hitman2....grabbed every weapon off the wall I could.

@bybeach: If you finesse you mean super janky controls, then yes, he had all sorts of finesse.

Posted by TommyH

I applaud them for not just tossing team deathmatch in there just to have MP... this seems awesome, persistence with upgrades and a mossibly endless supply of new missions to try out.
