It’s almost time to put your Hitman skills to the ultimate test again as a second Elusive Target makes his way into the game later this week. Starting Friday, May 27, you’ll have 48 hours and only a single chance to take out The Congressman.
Hitman’s first elusive target, The Forger, went live earlier this month. Again, the target won’t appear on your mini-map and won’t be highlighted while using Instinct. With saving disabled, and players given only one chance to track down and kill the target, working off just the intel provided, Elusive Targets are a challenge for even the most experienced players.
“An Elusive Target is the closest thing to the Hitman fantasy that we’ve ever created. Each one is a custom-created character with their own backstory and their own unique reason for being in that location,” Io-Interactive explains in the announcement.
If you manage to take out at least five Elusive Targets across the season, you will unlock the signature suit from Hitman: Absolution. Likewise, the signature suit from Blood Money awaits anyone skilled enough to complete ten Elusive Targets.
This is simply the continuation of the living-game promise the developer made with the new episodic Hitman. While information is still sparse on the second Elusive Target, we know he’ll enter Sapienza “at some point on Friday 27th May during European hours.”
Sapienza is the newest location, added in Hitman’s second episode, released at the end of April. There’s still no word on the game’s third episode. Will you be hunting down The Congressman? Let us know in the comments.
