In our first taste of gameplay footage we get to see Agent 47 on the trail of oligarch Victor Novolikov showing the alternative ways you can infiltrate buildings whether that’s dressing up in a disguise or simply kicking the door down.

Agent 47’s skills will evolve over time and preparation pays off, so make sure you find the best spot to take out the target.

One of the biggest features is the return of Contracts multiplayer mode where hundred of thousands of contracts can be created by the Hitman gaming community. You can make your own targets and share them with your friends.

At Sony’s E3 press conference, IO Interactive revealed that PS4 owners who pre-order the digital release will get exclusive access to the beta and access to six exclusive contracts.


Hitman is launching on the PS4, Xbox One and the PC on 8 December first as a digital download.
