Hitman’s Glorious 15th Elusive Target Event Kicks Off!

Well folks, it’s been what? Almost five days now since I last wrote about the wonderful world of Hitman, tsk, tsk, that’s far too long to go between getting your constant bombardment of Hitman news shoved down your throat.

Alas, I jest of course, while true, Io-Interactive and Square Enix are no stranger to flooding our inbox with update after event after update, day after day after day. You simply must admire such tenacity from a video game developer, it’s quite rare to see this much love and attention spent on a single game. In the years of rocky, disastrous and laughable game launches, with games soon doomed to rot in its half broken state for weeks, nay, months at a time. Credit must be given when credit is due.

So, what do we have this week, ah, I see, another Elusive Target event commences! You know the drill, or well, you should by now. Elusive Targets are a special timed one shot event, with the sole purpose of putting all you would-be assassins to the test. Combining elements from previous Episodes and creating a unique sandbox world, as to keep our attention while the team behind Hitman cook up something new. You’ll have only until Friday, December 9th 13:00 GMT / 14:00 CET to get the job done, easy peasy.

This event, dubbed “The Angel of Death” will have Agent 47 running across the bustling markets of Marrakesh. Players will have 168 hours (remember when these were 72 hours…) to locate their prime target, eliminate them then scamper off unnoticed in order to claim victory. So who’s the unlucky victim this time around? It seems an elderly nurse by the name of Etta Davis, who was a really big fan of the late Jack Kevorkian, in fact, a little too much of a fan.

This naughty nurse is the wrong kind of “naughty”, old Ms. Davis has a habit of snuffing out her patients as they chillax around their retirement home, trying to enjoy their golden years. It’s no wonder she received the moniker of “The Angel of Death”, yikes! Unfortunately for her, she found herself in the sights of Agent 47, the true Angel of Death.

Official Press Release

The fifteenth Elusive Target, The Angel of Death, is now live in Marrakesh 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 3: Marrakesh in order to access this content.

*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 multiple Elusive Target contracts.

  • The Elusive Targets are specially crafted, unique targets, which come with particular rules:
  • An Elusive Target is a once in a lifetime experience
  • They are available for a limited time only in game
  • Intel on the target will be limited
  • They will not appear in instinct mode, or the mini map and their locations will not be revealed to you – you’ll have to go and find them
  • Plan accordingly before you engage your target
  • 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
  • If you fail, there are no second chances

Don’t miss out.
