Hitman has updated with their 21st Elusive Target, a type of timed assassination mission where you have one shot to win. The targets this time are talented surgeons Pavel Frydel and Akane Akenawa.
The two were paid to save the life of a 14-year-old boy, the son of a very rich and powerful man. The organ they transplanted was harvested illegally, and was likely from a tropical disease center, as the boy soon died of a hemorrhagic infection. The mission is to hunt them down in Gama labs in Hokkaido, Japan. There’s an optional objective for this one, to take a deadly disease from the facility and kill them the way they killed the boy.
Elusive Targets are timed missions, this one lasting a week, from February 24th to March 3rd. Players receive limited information on the target(s), no mini-map tracking, and have an in-game briefing video on them. If you run out of time, die, or the target flees, that’s it, you’ve lost your chance.
It’s a very difficult challenge that takes a lot of forethought and planning, so the whole week is very useful. Elusive Targets are meant to be a challenge, so players will receive very exclusive rewards from these contracts.
The 21st Elusive target, the Surgeons, is live now in Hitman on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One.
