    Keine Fragen. Keine Namen. Kein Bedauern.
    In dieser Welt beherrschen Habgier und Verbrechen und man bezahlt dich dafür, dass du durch eine einzige Kugel die Dinge veränderst. Hong Kong und Paris, England und die Eiswüsten Sibiriens: Du erledigst überlal deinen Job, wenn das Geld stimmt. Jeder könnte das tun. Doch keiner besitzt deine tödliche Präzision, keiner hat das Timing für den perfekten Hit. Aber eines solltest du nie vergessen: Irgendwann wird eine Kugel für dich bestimmt sein.

    The third time out for the bald assassin codenamed 47 and more people must die by his hands - but this time may very well be his last...

    He may not be as world famous as his tomb-raiding Eidos stable mate, but Codename 47 is proving that he's got just as much life in him (unlike his victims) as he continues his murderous ways in the third instalment of the popular Hitman series. Once again, the business is execution, but as we see in the opening sequence, business is far from good for 47, as we finds him slowly bleeding to death. As his lifeblood seeps through his trademark black suit, the recent events that brought 47 to this critical moment flash before his eyes and it is these disjointed memories that form your missions. From Rotterdam to Siberia, the English countryside to an asylum in Romania, 47 must complete his fragmented missions and piece the puzzle of his life back together, before his old ally Death finally catches up with him.

    If you hope to survive, you must treat each flashback job as if it were real and proceed in 47's usual cold, calculating and - above all - professional manner. Listen to your briefing carefully, mentally note the details of your target or targets, as well as the location and possible means of entry and escape. Once you have formulated your plan of attack, you are completely on your own against armies of heavily-armed guards, seemingly impenetrable fortresses and suspicious members of the public. Use you stealthy abilities and deadly arsenal (such as trademark Fiber Wire and dual Silverballer pistols) to gain access to your target. Use the clothes of your victims as disguises and salvaged items to create makeshift murder weapons such as bombs and poisons.

    You have the skills and a dossier on the mission - how 47 approaches his missions is entirely up to you. But even the best laid plans of mice and hitmen go oft astray, so be sure keep your wits about you as you may need to resort to blasting your way out of trouble.

    • Third instalment of the stylish and brutal Hitman series


    • Take on missions the way you want to: loud and heavy-handed or quiet and skilful


    • Use disguise and distraction to gain access to your target


    • Numerous weapons including garrottes, poison, pistols, SMGs, sniper rifles and explosives

    One way or another the job gets done

    "The reality is that the hitman doesn't exist. He is an illusion, an entity which his enemies cannot see or touch."
    - The Psychology of the Assassin

Improvise on the job, picking up environmental objects like meat hooks, shovels, and pillows to use as weapons. In the hands of the ultimate hitman, everything becomes a weapon.

    "The ruthlessness of the hired killer stems from the belief that his body and mind are not his own."
    - The Psychology of the Assassin
