Contracts is a new online mode which allows gamers to create and share their own custom hit challenges within the Hitman Absolution. Players will choose a level, targets, and weapons, and then set their own rules for completing the contract based on time, style and witnesses. There are no editors or complicated mechanics to learn; in Contracts gamers play to create. As an asynchronous mode, Contracts allows players to compete against friends at any time, regardless of whether they are online. Hitman Absolution will also ship with many pre-set Contracts designed by the developers at IO Interactive.
