It’s not exactly player vs. player, but Hitman: Absolution will include an asynchronous multiplayer mode called ‘Contracts’ which will allow players to challenge each other to completing certain missions with certain specifications changed for the best completion time.
Players will be able to set any three targets to assassinate and restrict the weapons, you can then compete for the best time to gain more money. Money will allow you to start a scenario with weapons and disguises to further improve times.
IO Interactive also plan to release weekly contracts for people to compete in.
Hitman: Absolution launches on November 20 for PC, PS3 and Xbox 360.
