RELEASE DATE(S): 20 November 2012

IO Interactive and Square Enix yesterday announced at Gamescom a new game mode in Hitman: Absolution called "Contracts."

Says Square Enix, "Contracts is a new online mode which allows gamers to create and share their own custom hit challenges within the Hitman: Absolution game. Choose a level, targets, weapons and then set your rules for completing your  contract based on time, style and witnesses. There are no clumsy editors or complicated mechanics to learn; in Contracts you simply play to create, and as Contracts is an asynchronous mode, you can compete against friends at any time, regardless of whether they are online.

"Upon accepting and successfully completing a contract, players will be rewarded in contract dollars with the amount depending upon how well they performed. In order to create more elaborate and creative setups, the player can choose from a vast arsenal of weapons, disguises, upgrades, and techniques; all of which can be unlocked by either playing through the story mode of Hitman: Absolution or by spending those hard-earned contract dollars," they continued.

Hitman: Absolution is scheduled for release on 20 November for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC.
