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. Hitman: Absolution will also ship with many pre-set CONTRACTS, each designed by the very best assassins at IO Interactive.
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.
