Square Enix have revealed HITMAN, a new digital and fully live assassination experience.

HITMAN sees the player take control of Agent 47 as he travels from beautiful Italian coasts to bustling markets in Marrakesh taking out high profile targets. Sound familiar? This time there is a big twist on the game – everything is digital and takes a more communal approach on things. There’ll be hits that are available 48 hours that you’ll only get one shot at that will require the community pulling together to share knowledge at the best way to approach the mission. Sounds neat. Check the trailer out below:

The game still follows the classic HITMAN formula – the developer said the following:
“”This is a true HITMAN fantasy, a highly challenging, thinking person’s game where creativity is rewarded,” said Christian Elverdam, Creative Director, Io-Interactive. “You have the power and intelligence of Agent 47 at your fingertips and it is your choice whether to use brute force or orchestrate a genuine masterpiece of assassination.”

Gameplay focuses on taking out targets in huge and intricate sandbox levels with complete freedom of approach. Where to go, when to strike and who to kill – it is all up to you. And for the first time HITMAN will lead with a digital release inviting players into a world of assassination.”

It’s sounding sweet – I loved Hitman Absolution so my expectations are high, especially with the community driven focus.  It’s coming December 8th so expect to see more over the coming months.
