News: Eidos announced that Hitman: Contracts is in development for PS2 & Xbox with its first trailer.
Eidos announced this week that the eagerly awaited return of the world's deadliest assassin in Hitman: Contracts, the game is the third instalment in the critically acclaimed, multi-million selling Hitman series. The game is once again being developed by Io Interactive and will be available for PS2, Xbox and PC in spring of 2004.
Hitman: Contracts delivers more action-packed and suspenseful missions, with a greater variety of ways to make the perfect hit and an increased arsenal of firearms and close-combat weapons. A new graphics engine showcases Hitman's 'work' in brutal detail and brings new locations to life. An improved control system and more gradual learning curve will ensure that the game is accessible to all aspiring hitmen.
Hitman: Contracts takes you into the mind of Agent 47, the most ruthlessly efficient contract killer in history. The game begins in Paris as Agent 47 finds himself wounded and trapped in what is a dangerous situation, even for him. Hitman: Contracts explores the dark psychology of killing for a living and promises to be the darkest, most disturbing episode in the series.
Janos Fl?sser, managing director of Io Interactive says: "Hitman: Contracts will reveal a new side to Hitman. The game will be epic, highly disturbing, but most importantly an enjoyable experience. The technology we are employing will make it one of the most advanced games on the market."
Mike McGarvey, CEO of Eidos says: "The Hitman series has massive mainstream appeal and is already well established as one of the industry's biggest original intellectual properties. Hitman: Contracts is a sure-fire hit for 2004."
