    Die erste Kugel ist immer seine letzte


    ERHÄLTLICH ENDE NOVEMBER


    Jeder Auftrag verlangt Präzision und Planung. Achte auf die tödlichen Details ● Ein Hinterhalt ist besser als tausend Kugeln. Unterschätze nie die künstliche Intelligenz deiner Gegner ● Sei ein Meister der Verwandlung. Die Kleidung deiner Opfer kann dich tarnen, um deine Mission geheim zu halten und Zeit zu gewinnen. ● Ferngezündete Autobombe oder eine simple Klaviersaite – die Situation sollte entscheiden, welche deiner 25 Waffen zum Einsatz kommt

    Taking control of a ‘Hitman’, the player has to carry out ‘hits’ on a number of high-powered adversaries all set within intricately detailed 3D environments.

    The Hitman is the world's most accomplished and wealthy assassin; however, he is plagued by a troubling past of deception and genetic butchery. The ingenious story will evolve over five chapters of heart-stopping action. Remember, the world of contract hits rewards a quick intellect more than a quick trigger finger.
