Hey Guys! Been pretty flat out handling the PR stuff so far but I'm coping. Currently our lead writer, Aaron, is undergoing a change of location hence why he has been quiet with the gaming news. Here I am, trying to slip my feet into some fairly big shoes to keep you all updated with the world of gaming!


As we are only a short way into the gaming season of the year and we have already been hit with some big titles like Borderlands 2 and DOA 5. I'm here today to talk about a title not coming till later in the year and I must say I can't wait. HITMAN: ABSOLUTION has released a quick gameplay video going into the CONTRACTS missions of the game.

The 18-minute play-through includes commentary from HITMAN: ABSOLUTION game director Tore Blystad and Travis Barbour, part of the community team at IO Interactive.

CONTRACTS is a new online mode which allows gamers to create and share their own custom hit challenges within the HITMAN: ABSOLUTION game. Players will choose a level, targets, weapons and then set their own rules for completing the contract based on time, style and witnesses. There are no clumsy editors or complicated mechanics to learn; in CONTRACTS you simply play to create. As an asynchronous mode, CONTRACTS allows fans to compete against friends at any time, regardless of whether they are online. HITMAN: ABSOLUTION will also ship with many pre-set CONTRACTS, each designed by the very best assassins at IO Interactive.

HITMAN: ABSOLUTION is scheduled for global release on November 20, 2012 for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft and Windows PC.
