Square Enix and IO Interactive have today revealed a new gameplay trailer showcasing the "Contracts Mode" within the upcoming title Hitman: Absolution. The new mode will allow players to "mark" targets in the singleplayer proportion of the game, which will send a notification to friends and players of the online side that you are offering a bounty for said target.

The new mode will offer a twist on the usual silent killer game, with the chance to unlock a variety of weapons upon completing contracts. When designing a contract, players can choose to limit the target to only being killed by certain weapons or techniques, giving an added difficulty to claiming the prize.
“CONTRACTS was inspired by our loyal and extremely creative fans, many of whom are still finding new and amazing ways of taking out targets in previous Hitman games,” said Christian Elverdam, gameplay director for HITMAN: ABSOLUTION. “CONTRACTS mode finally delivers a way for Hitman players to fully realize both their creativity and competitive nature. Whether they’re fighting to shave off a split second from their time or combining elements and timing events to create unprecedented accidental deaths, gamers can now challenge and inspire each another with an endless variety of user-generated contracts.”
If you have the time, you can check out the full 18 minute long walkthrough below which gives a great introduction to the new mode and hopefully we'll see some really creative contracts once players get their hands on the game.

Can't wait for Absolution to come out. The new Contracts mode certainly adds an element of interactivity with the Hitman community. As replayable as the game has always been, this will breathe even more life into the game to keep it from going stale too soon.
