Hitman Absolution’s ‘Contracts’ mode explained in 18 minutes [Video]

‘Contracts’ mode may have seemed a little confusing when it was first announced for , and text didn’t necessarily seem to be the best way to put the concept across. Handily, I/O Interactive has now released a playthrough video that should explain, and visually demonstrate, most aspects of the asynchronous multiplayer challenge mode.

Essentially, to make a contract you play through any level of the game and select upwards of three targets. The manner in which you take each target down (the disguise you use, whether you were seen and so on) is recorded and becomes the contract.
