HITMAN™ Gameplay

Play as international assassin Agent 47 in a game that can be characterized as the epitome of stealth. Watch HITMAN’s story unfold starting in a secret hitman training facility, and turning into a series of hits around the globe. But most importantly, discover hundreds of ways to maneuver in the game’s gigantic levels to deliver death unnoticed.

What Makes Hitman Fun

  • No Wrong Way: No matter what you do you can always get caught, so if any unorthodox way you find to complete your objectives is fine as long as it helps keep you in shadows. This is a game that will reward you for being clever and creative; mistakes are not easily forgiven.
  • Guards And Disguises: The ability to dress up as different staff members or authorities is a prominent part of the game. This useful tool is not one without its perils though, as the group of people you are disguised as can and will realize you aren’t one of them.
  • Blending In: As a bold guy who’s usually in a suit, you would be way too conspicuous for most of your missions. Thankfully, there are a number of mechanisms to help you become a part of your environment. Use them wisely and you might just make it as a silent murderer.
  • Anyway You Want It: Wanna push them from a cliff or a balcony? Wanna drown them in a toilet or simply shoot them in the head? You could spend hours on each level, trying to find all means of assassination imaginable and you still would be able to do it.

This Won’t Hurt A Bit: If you’re good enough at your job as a paid assassin, your targets won’t even know they‘re about to part this mortal world

It’s A Mad World: Your various disguises will give you access to all kinds of places; even catwalks – if you’re up to it

  • Tricks Of The Trade: If you think your old pal Agent 47 doesn’t have a few tricks up his sleeve, you are much mistaken, friend. Wearing disguises, using distractions and hiding spots – it’s all there; all the things that make 47 an elusive predator.
