Hitman: Absolution's social sociopaths
Why Contracts mode will transform Agent 47's antics
As hitmen go, Agent 47 is reasonably conspicuous. Stern-looking bald chap, barcode on the back of the neck. You'd think that sort of thing would be an occupational hazard for someone who has to remain unidentified during a string of high profile contract killings.
But then you look at the other assassins kicking around on Xbox 360 and you realise he's not doing too badly. Altair, Ezio and Connor all parade around in the kind of white outfits that wouldn't look out of place on the Daz doorstep challenge and Sam Fisher has those three piercing green lights on his nut, which are seemingly invisible to everyone else. Suddenly 47's beginning to look like the human chameleon.
Anyway, none of this has anything to do with Contracts mode, which is what the video's about. It's difficult to express in words exactly how excited I am about the possibilities of this new feature in the latest Hitman game. That's why I made a video, see?
Watch it to find out why the Absolution disc will be spinning in the tray for months and months after you buy it.
