It’s too easy to lumber a game with needless mulitplayer these days. IO Interactive have taken the decision to omit standard multiplayer from Hitman: Absolution’s makeup. Instead, the title offers a neat spin on competitive play. “Contracts” mode allows players to set targets for their friends to smash. Even so, the developer suggests including traditional multiplayer is an irritatingly attractive prospect.

Hitman: Absolution contains a villain by the name of Blake Dexter, who is not only a twisted and formidable foe, but he is played by actor Keith Carradine in the game.
