Hello Hitman Absolution fans!
We’ve created a new home for your favourite Hitman content that is much more lively and will serve us well into the future. We won’t forget Absolution and will still feature content from the game on the new page - but we needed a more appropriate account name if we’re going to talk about all things Hitman both old and new.
www.hitman.tumblr.com does the trick and that’s what we’ve gone with. For now, we’ve got a lot of great fan-art scheduled in to post once a day and we’ll be including more sculpted content where it makes sense.
Thanks for your support and we hope you’ll join us on the new page.
The Hitman Community Team
At last year’s Eurogamer Expo, we gave away a mini 47 to everyone that demoed Absolution. Do you still have yours? (at Io Interactive)

Lenny goes flying.
At IO Interactive, we are obviously very excited to see all of the new contracts flowing through the system and in particular we’re happy to see the featured contracts getting lots of plays.
But what is a featured contract exactly and how do you get one of your contracts featured? Jump to the new Hitman community site and read all about it - http://ica.hitman.com/press/featured-contracts-callout
So the dust has now settled on the launch and we’re seeing hundreds of thousands of people playing the game simultaneously. It’s a moment we’ve been waiting a long time to see, and we’re delighted that the CONTRACTS mode is proving so popular.
Although we shipped the game with 20 levels, thanks to our amazing community you can now access over 50,000 different contracts… and the number is rising all the time.
No excuse, then - if you’ve not jumped in already, it’s time to get involved!
As you’ll probably be aware, we’re very excited about the launch of Hitman: Absolution next week. Hopefully you are too… and one of the best bits of the games - CONTRACTS mode, where you get to create your own customised hits and challenge your friends to beat them - is going to be free for everybody who plays the game.
Here’s the official statement about it below.
We’re so excited that Hitman: Absolution is launching next week! In particular, we’re looking forward to all of the amazing ways players can challenge each other in the innovative CONTRACTS mode – where you get to call the shots.
We’d actually planned to have this mode accessible via a code in the game’s box, but we really want to make it available to anybody that plays the game – so we want to take a new approach.
If you’re in North America you’ll see the mode automatically appear in the game menu. If you’re elsewhere, you can redeem the code inside the box, or you can simply select the BUY CONTRACTS PASS option. From there, head to the store where CONTRACTS will be free to access.
The only thing you need to worry about then is just how challenging your CONTRACT will be. See you online!
So that’s good then. No excuse for everybody not to get cracking as soon as the game’s out in Europe and other PAL regions on November 20th - we’ll be talking more about the some of the cool CONTRACTS being created post-launch, so make sure to check back often.
