Hitman is starting to get into player-curated contracts

This month's Hitman update schedule is mostly more of the same, but the fact that IO is still finding ways to support the game makes me happy. First up, on August 11, the game will have 10 new Featured Contracts to unravel and another Chall...

Hitman's new patch makes Agent 47 a little more professional

Agent 47, consummate professional that he is (here's a video of him kicking a toilet onto someone's head), is always looking to improve. In his line of work, staying alive is a secondary objective right behind efficient killing. Now he's a ...

IO has a new batch of content for Hitman this month

I am so down for a second season of Hitman should that come to fruition following Square Enix's decision to "withdraw from the business of [series developer] IO Interactive." In the more immediate and definitely-gonna-happen future, we are ...

Hitman is $20 off on Amazon today, but only with this code

The single greatest video game surprise of last year may have been Hitman. Sometime in 2015, Square Enix suddenly announced that the new Hitman would be episodic and all pre-orders were refunded. It was a strange reversal, one that felt lik...

My wishlist for Hitman Season Two

Overwatch, I'm going to let you finish, but Hitman was one of the best games of all time! OK, well maybe not of all time, but as my personal favorite game of 2016 it got my vote for Destructoid's Game of the Year. While we're at i...

Hitman's holiday mission stars the Home Alone bandits

IO Interactive is giving us a compelling reason to revisit Hitman's Paris fashion show level today with a Christmas makeover and the Holiday Hoarders mission. Peter gave us the rundown already, but there is one specific note to bring up. Th...

Get into the holiday spirit with Hitman's Christmas mission

I was trying to come up with a catchy Christmas pun to headline the article, then I realized that would be super cliche. So, forget about that nonsense and let's jump straight into the news. Hitman is going to be receiving a free holiday th...

Soon, Agent 47 will be able to access his equipment offline

While Hitman season one may be a really solid entry in the series, the always online requirement has been terrible. Regardless of whether or not you own the content, you cannot access your equipment or make any level progression if you aren...

You will never Hitman this good

This, from GuLe's run at Hitman: Hokkaido's Escalation Mission, is some top-tier Hitman-ing. Apparently one second slower and an NPC would notice some bodies, costing you that 20,000 "No Bodies Found" bonus, but I'm more impressed by manag...

Hitman Season 2 is officially in the works

Those who enjoyed this year's episodic Hitman will be happy to know that the journey isn't over for Agent 47. In an interview with GamerGen at Paris Games Week, Eidos confirmed that Season 2 is in the works. There isn't an exact count ...

Review: Hitman: Colorado

Review: Hitman: Bangkok

Hitman has been getting run through the wringer over the past five months, and it has almost nothing to do with its gameplay. No, the core is pretty sound -- a natural evolution of the "find and kill" staple it helped define in 20...

IO Interactive has plans for three seasons of Hitman

I'm eager for IO Interactive to wrap up Hitman not just because I'm enjoying it so far, but because I want folks who are opposed to its episodic structure to play it and have a good time, too. There are a few locations left to go, including...

Review: Hitman: Marrakesh

IO Interactive's Paris and Sapienza maps for the new Hitman have delighted fans and proven the development team knows just how to use Agent 47 -- as a Rube Goldberg trigger. And IO is comfortably in its groove with the third episode, Marrak...

Hitman's third episode is out today

Pack up your speedos and spicy meatballs, the Hitman is leaving coastal Italy for Marrakesh, previously described as, "a maze of alleys, a range of souks that line the medina walls and a fully-fledged shisha café...Just beyond the ...

Did you manage to take out Hitman's first Elusive Target?

Over the weekend, Hitman players had a single chance to hunt down a unique character. Sergei "The Forger" Larin was the first of the game's Elusive Targets -- one-off encounters that go live for a limited time and won't return. There's no s...

 
Hitman episode 2 review photo

Review: Hitman: Sapienza

Hitman's first episode was a measured, strong proof of concept: that Hitman works best in large sandboxes with interstitial systems, rather than trying to string what are effectively set-pieces into a linear narrative. The job (professional...

I want to vacay in Hitman's Sapienza

Despite my confident, casual unholstering of the word "vacay," I've never actually taken a vacation, on account of all the poverty. Still, feels good to dream, and Hitman's take on Italy looks downright idyllic. I mean, not the weird bit wi...

Naked body pile executions are why Hitman is so good

You may remember from my review that the new, episodic Hitman is good as heck, "a dope slapstick murder comedy." I recounted a few funny tales here, including a pretty amusing, but not all that creative kill (it's practically set up for you...
