Square Enix and Io-Interactive have delivered once again with its never-ending-onslaught of updates and events from their episodic Hitman title, with today’s latest dealings marking the 22nd Elusive Target event.
Looks like Agent 47 will be visiting the good ol’ U.S. of A. again with the newest Elusive Target taking place in Episode 5’s Colorado vista. The great bald one must (once again) deliver some justice out to all the evil-doers in the land, with today’s target being Pertti “the Bookeeper” Järnefelt.
Players will have “only” 168 hours to locate the target, all while avoiding combat, it seems our target is a bit skittish and will vamoose post haste if he catches even the slightest whiff of altercation, find the evidence, dispatch some justice, and then make a clean getaway for the usual post game celebrations. Of course, another point on the wall for some glorious Hitman goodies if you succeed.
From today, Friday, March 17th until March 24th at 13:00 GMT / 14:00 CET, you’ll have just one chance to accomplish your mission, don’t bugger it up agents, there are no second changes in Agent 47’s world.
