One of the selling points of the latest Hitman game was the idea of elusive targets, and tomorrow we will finally get the opportunity to take one down.
In case you aren’t aware of what the elusive targets are, they are special custom-created characters that are added to existing locations. These targets are placed only for a limited amount of time, but that’s not in-game time, you’ll only have two real days to take this target down. Part of the challenge is the elusive target can only be taken down once. If you mess up your opportunity then that’s too bad, the target will be gone forever. If you kill the target in a way that wasn’t optimal, again, too bad. You won’t be given a second chance, so don’t mess it up.
Hitman’s first elusive target will last for only forty-eight hours. The information on the target will be limited, you will have to hunt the target down to find them. Unlike the other targets in the game, you won’t find the elusive target in instinct mode or in the mini-map. You’ll have to be prepared every step of the way if you want to take down the target in the most efficient way possible.
Remember, you only get one chance. When the time runs out, that elusive target is gone forever.
Square Enix are being generous by giving the community a heads up on the amount of time the elusive target will be present for. The developers have warned us in their press release that the next target may not be around for as long, so you’ll have to look out on the Hitman Twitter feed and the forums to keep up to date.
Check out our review of the. Dustin Bailey had this to say about the game: “Episode Two is better than the first, both because its featured level is a more varied, interesting location, and because it eases the uncertainty of the episodic release and sets a precedent for excellence going forward.”
