Hot off the heels of Io-Interactive’s latest Holiday Hoarder’s December update, comes Agent 47’s Sweet, Sweet, Sixteenth Elusive Target Event for the hugely popular episodic Hitman game.

Unless you’ve been in a coma the last few months, you should know the drill by now… you race against the clock, you have only one chance, and you must eliminate the target and flee the scene anytime between today and next Friday, December 16th.

However, there is in fact an extra stipulation for the sixteenth Elusive Target challenge, there are two, count that, two conditions that must be met or you will fail the challenge and will have no second chance to redeem yourself. The tact on extra conditions require the player to NOT harm, injure or subdue both Keith Keeble and Katherine Feller, Agent 47 must hunt for his victim, all while keeping note of the above warning.

Today’s challenge sees the master assassin staking out the Italian coastal town of Sapienza, sneakily scope the surroundings, keeping an eye out for today’s unlucky target, a man by the name of Richard J. Magee, aka ‘The Guru’. He’s a money-hungry-greedy-guts who has his eyes on Mr. Keeble’s 3.5 million dollar bank account.

Remember, you have 168 hours, do NOT harm the trust-fund hipster Keith, or his family’s lawyer Katherine, take out Mr. Magee and get the hell out of dodge. The clocks ticking agents, suit up and get to work.
