Hitman’s Seventeenth Elusive Target Goes Lives

Posted on 30 Dec 2016 by

With the end of the year festivities’ wrapping up comes more gaming news trickling into my inbox. First up to bat, and recently enjoying its own holiday update, Square Enix and Io-Interactive’s popular episodic Hitman title is starting the New Year off with a… BANG! (Get it… pew pew pew? I know… punny right!)

After Agent 47’s latest adventures in the sunny coastal town of Sapienza during his “sweet sixteenth” two weeks ago, the magnificent bald-headed bastard finds himself in Thailand chasing after the next target in the seventeenth Elusive Target event.

Players are tasked with tracking down and eliminating a man by the name of Wen Ts’ai, aka ‘The Food Critic’. Per usual, you’ll have a fixed amount of time, and only one chance at staking out the area, locating the enemy, assassinate him and then vacating the area unseen, post haste.

This sadistic foodie has a penchant for utterly destroying many chefs’ careers, and sometimes their very lives. Starting today, December 30th, assassins will have 168 hours to accomplish their mission, which takes place at the luxurious Himmapan Hotel set in Bangkok.

I know you hate to dine and dash, but you’ve work to do, so do what you do best Agent 47, order up some delicious Tom Yum for starters, show this glorified Yelper to a good time, and then get that Pad Tai to go, you’re on the clock and times a wasting.

Official Press Release

The seventeenth Elusive Target, The Food Critic, 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.

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.

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.

Start time:    Friday, December 30th 13:00 GMT / 14:00 CET
End time:     Friday, January 6th 13:00 GMT / 14:00 CET
