Io-Interactive and Realm Pictures invited a select group of YouTubers to become Agent 47’s handler on film as he goes on a mission to “eliminate a Serbian arms dealer.” Yes, it’s a real-life Hitman experience of sorts.

Among the participants were YouTubers AliA, NukemDukem, SUP3R KONAR and Pietsmiet as well as Jane Perry, the actress who plays Agent 47’s handler Diana Burnwood.

A handler room with CCTV feeds, a briefcase with the mission briefing and other items needed to be a handler were provided to participants. They were even provided with a computer used for hacking “key elements” in the real-world environment built by Realm Pictures.

The Agent 47 parts, featuring voice actor David Bateson, were filmed on location at a mansion in Devon, England. Watch it above.

Below is the making-of video which takes you behind-the-scenes.

Hitman will be released on March 11 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
