Hitman: Absolution features asynchronous multiplayer, according to an announcement from IO Interactive at gamescom. Called Contracts, players can create their own scenarios, can pick out three characters on a level, choose the weapons, and challenge other players to “contract”. The faster the hits are made, the more money made. Weekly contracts will be added by the developer and earned money allows new scenarios with weapons and disguises. The mode is playable at gamescom and a video of the new mode will be released tomorrow. Thanks, Joystiq.
