A target-rich environment.
IO Interactive has brought Elusive Targets back to Hitman for a limited time.
Sergei Larin (aka The Forger) is currently active in Paris and will remain active until November 27, being the first of many Elusive Targets cycling through the episodic assassination game, according to IO Interactive.
Elusive Targets are unique contracts that players only have one chance to kill. Whether they succeed or fail, that attempt is all there is. Elusive Targets do not appear on the map or in Instinct. Instead players will need to parse clues from briefing materials and study their reference photograph to track down their target.
Players who failed or completed an Elusive Target the first time around will not be able to play the contract again.
Elusive Targets are also the only way to unlock some of the suits for Agent 47, and players will have to remain vigilant if they want to obtain them all. The Winter Suit, in particular, is awarded only to players to take out 5 Elusive Targets with the Silent Assassin rating.
Hitman was well received, with our review calling the final episode “Great.” Another game in the franchise is already in development, and a TV series for Agent 47 is in the works at Hulu from the creator of John Wick.
