HITMAN’s Big 20th Elusive Target Event is Upon Us

Square Enix and Io-Interactive are pleased to present the 20th Elusive Target event to come to the hugely popular episodic Hitman title.

It’s been almost two weeks since I last talked about Hitman, and it had me starting to worry for a bit there because we all need our Hitman “fix”, we just can’t function without it… right? If you’re new to Elusive Target events (which you shouldn’t be) then I’ll break it down really simply for you; bad person is bad, you take care of bad person, bad person dead, you leave the area, done… simple right!

Of course it’s never that simple, you’ll have 168 hours to find your target and eliminate them, starting today, February 10th until February 17th 13:00 GMT / 14:00 CET. Tasked with finding and eradicating Adeze “Nne Obara” Oijofor, as well as retrieving digital files and maps she has stored on a flash drive, both will be found at Hotel Himmapan in Bangkok, Thailand.

Jump on in and start planning the assassination, you’ll have plenty of time, but as usual, only one chance at a perfect run, so make it count!


Official Press Release

The twentieth HITMAN Elusive Target is live now!

Elusive Target #20, The Warlord, is now live in Bangkok across all platforms. A briefing video is available online and in-game to help players determine the approximate location of the target. Players will need to own HITMAN Episode 4: Bangkok in order to access this content.

(1) Eliminate Adeze Oijofor & (2) Retrieve Maps and Digital Files

*The Elusive Target is available for 168 hours.

Elusive Targets are part of the live content being published for HITMAN in-between episodes and represent a new game mode debuting for players. They are not going to be easy but if you can prove yourself, you’ll earn in-game rewards for completing Elusive Target contracts.

  • Your target can only die once
  • If you die during the mission, that’s it
  • When the time runs out, they are gone for good
