Square Enix has announced an interesting kind of multiplayer for Hitman: Absolution. The game will feature "Contracts," where gamers can create and share assassination challenges with other players.
Hitman: Absolution players pick weapons and disguises, then head into one of the game's single-player levels. They then tag up to three targets, and friends have to enter the level and complete it as fast as possible. Think of it as a game of "horse," but with murder. The reward for each contract depends on the player's speed and whether or not they've satisfied certain conditions.
