IO Interactive Unveils Hitman: Absolution PS3 - Contracts Mode

110w ago - IO Interactive Community Manager Nick Price has unveiled the Contracts Mode in upcoming PS3 video game title Hitman: Absolution today.

Going back to the previous games in the Hitman series, we've always enjoyed watching videos of how the fans tackle the different levels; both in terms of strategy and approach to the emergent systems within the game but also in terms of how they change the rules by going against the core of the level.

Assuming the news is true, it would mesh well with the PS3 Slim rumors we've heard so far, most notably that Ars Technica expected the units to hit the market in August or September.
