Hitman's Game of the Year edition brings with it new weapons, new missions and, to Mike's delight, new outfits that include a ridiculously sinister clown suit. Join as as we chat Hitman,then examine videogames' most sinister clowns who are still somehow not as scary as Agent 47 in a bright red wig.
The Author is the second mission of Hitman's new Patient Zero campaign missions, and it returns us to a much spookier Sapienza to seize a deadly virus and eliminate an author and his cult contact. See how each of us goes about it in this Hitman gameplay.
Hitman's Game of the Year edition adds a four-mission campaign called Patient Zero. See us take on first mission The Source, set in the Himmapan hotel in Bangkok, in which we must whack a pair of cult leaders to prevent a terrorist attack. See how each of us goes about it in this Hitman gameplay.
Long-time viewers of our Hitman videos will recognise Rocco, the hapless, pantsless kitchen assistant late for his first day at work in the Sapienza mansion. He's our target in this latest Hitman contract, but we've got to kill him with a falling object. This should prove tricky. Will we manage it? Watch and find out.
Hitman contract 1001 Moroccan Nights compels Andy to dress like a fortune teller and whack four targets in and around a Marrakech night market. Can he remain uncompromised while looking like a fancy dress genie and singing medleys from Disney's Aladdin? See for yourself.
In featured Hitman contract Plywood and Paste, Agent 47 must return to his old ICA training grounds and ensure four targets meet with 'accidental' deaths. Are there enough accidental kills to go around at the ICA Training Facility? Watch and find out.
Hitman's Contracts mode is a list of missions designed by other Hitman players. In this particular contract, we've been hired by an animal rights activist who wants us to take out a big game hunter from a distance, with a rifle, an ironic kill that echoes the way he kills his animal victims. Because our client loves all animals, large and small, they also want us to kill the two exterminators working to deal with the hotel's bug problem. See how we get on in this Hitman gameplay.
Hitman's Contracts mode is a list of missions designed by other Hitman players. In this particular contract, we have to off three targets in Sapienza, in accident kills with a falling object, while dressed as a Renaissance plague doctor. Not the most subtle of contracts, but a lot of fun, as you'll find out if you watch this video.
The Entertainer is Hitman's 26th Elusive Target, and the final Elusive Target of the game's first season: a man who goes by the name "Mr. Giggles" but is much less jolly than that makes him sound. He's the face-tattooed ringmaster of an underground circus that features dogfights, bare-knuckle fighting and, if we don't do something to stop him, pandas apparently eating each other. Hit the jump to watch us track him down in the busy Marrakech night market and steal his nefarious client list in this Hitman gameplay.
Hitman's Contracts mode is a list of missions designed by other Hitman players. In this particular contract, our hit is on behalf of a hairdresser fed up with a group of people playing music loudly during what they describe disapprovingly as "weed parties", because this hairdresser is apparently also my mother. To send a message, they want 47 to murder the group using scissors, which seems like a bit of an overreaction, but hey, it's their money.
Hitman's 25th Elusive Target is The Fugitive, an internationally wanted criminal who has booked into the Gama facility in Hokkaido, Japan for facial reconstructive surgery. That's going to make identifying him tricky, what with the new face and all, but Diana is on the case and will be feeding us info as we go.
Mario and Luigi make our hit list in Hitman contract Super Sibling Rivalry, in which Agent 47 must whack the colour-coded plumber brothers in the Italian town of Sapienza. For maximum Hitman points, you must kill Mario dressed as Luigi and Luigi dressed as Mario, with an explosion. See if Hitman Mike can pull it off in this Hitman gameplay.
Hitman Elusive Target 24 is The Badboy: a tripcore artist hiding out on a movie set in the Italian seaside town of Sapienza while on the run from the authorities. Who will be lethally tackled by the target's security? Who will try to cram an entourage member in the portable toilet? Who will split the badboy's skull with a cleaver? Watch and learn.
Hitman's Contracts mode is a list of player-generated targets where you can take on challenges set by other players. In this particular contract, our challenge is to kill a guy complaining about a broken shower in the basement of Thailand's Himmapan Hotel, in a fall. Hit the jump to see how we got on.
Hitman's newest elusive target is Kieran Hudson, a paparazzo with a price on his head after he ruined the career of a sitcom star with his scurrilous rumours. So, we're back in Paris to collect, with a nice, discreet chandelier accident that will kill no more than two additional people. Three, tops.
Hitman Elusive Target 22 takes us back to the militia compound in Colorado, there to assassinate a bookkeeper who is conducting an audit, because militias can be woefully inefficient, I guess. Anyway, if there's one thing The ICA hates, it's bookkeepers, so we're off to do some murdering.
Super soldiers are soldiers enhanced by artificial means to be stronger, faster and more super. Just as there's more than one way to skin a cat, though, there's more than one way to create a super soldier - and like the various ways of skinning a cat, methods for making super soldiers tend to be a bit icky. Ethically icky, that is.
Hitman's latest Elusive Target mission takes place in the fancy hospital at Hokkaido, Japan and designates two targets: the surgeons Pavel Frydel and Akane Akenawa, who the client has requested be killed by viral infection. Who will whack them successfully? Who will panic and be gunned down in the corridor? Watch and find out, why not.
Hitman's 20th elusive target is Adeze Oijofor, a West African warlord currently staying at the Himmapan hotel in Bangkok. In addition to knocking off the warlord, we also need to retrieve maps and digital files located on a USB stick in a safe somewhere in the hotel. Is Mike up to the stealth challenge? The answer may surprise you!
Hitman's final bonus episode of season one is Landslide, in which 47 must take out a corrupt politician throwing a rally in Sapienza. Surely buying in all those fireworks was only going to end one way with Mike around.
The recipe for a perfect Hitman kill calls for a firm base of preparation and a dash of wicked irony. Just consider these, the most needlessly elaborate, cruel and unusual kills from Season 1 of Hitman No Subtitle in Show of the Week.
With an assassin career stretching back 17 years, Agent 47 has racked up more hits than Abba. Time to test amateur Hitmans Mike and Andy on their Hitman history, as we show them a selection of clips starring Agent 47 as he prepares to pull off a classic kill. Can they tell us what happens next?
Hitman Elusive Target 18 is The Chameleon: an actor dressed as a decorated military officer, holed up in the house in the Colorado militia base. You have to kill him in an 'accident'. Witness our respective attempts on his life in this Hitman gameplay.
It's the Show of the Week Xmas Special, in which we look at this year's best free festive DLC and bring cheer to Hitman's Holiday Hoarders mission by murdering the burglars from Home Alone while dressed as Santa. Happy holidays from all of us at Outside Xbox!
Hitman's Paris mission includes the option to assassinate your target by poisoning his favourite cocktail: the bare knuckle boxer. But how does this delicate blend of rum, vodka and orange juice taste when it hasn't had emetic poison added to it by a furious bald assassin? We find out in the following video.
