A new mode within Hitman: Absolution allows players to create and share their own custom hit challenges.
Contract creators simply select a level from the game, and then choose up to three AI characters within it to be eliminated.
The creator then sets requirements for how other players must perform said hits by playing through the level themselves.
Depending on how the level has been set up, money may be awarded to players for following a creator’s costume and weapon choices, as well as for mirroring where they hid the bodies of their victims.
The exact path a creator takes to perform their kills does not have to be followed, but the time it takes a player to complete a contract does impact their score.
"We believe contracts bring replayability, it brings you play to create, and finally we feel we will get a stronger sense of community than ever before," said gameplay director Christian Elverdam.
Hitman: Absolution is scheduled for release on November 20, 2012 for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Windows PC.
