Fifteen years ago, IO-Interactive has created a game-genre. In Hitman: Codename 47 bald hitman killed in an expensive suit influential and dangerous people in many different ways: shot from a sniper rifle, choking string organizing an “accident” or simple assault.
To mask permitted to dress under the staff, from guards to cooks. We were placed in a small sandbox, untied his hands, and started hunting. At the end of the mission is rated. All cherished dream of Silent Assassin, but the choice remained for the player.
The next few years the formula Hitman uniformly polished out more exotic ways of killing, interesting situations and freedom. Well, the ring system of “dressing” brought to mind.
All changed Hitman: Absolution. Scene rails, an absurd approach to camouflage, close location to the situational objectives, the ill-fated regime of “instinct” and bias towards action. Players prayed for the return to the reference Hitman: Blood Money. And the new Hitman seemingly had to do it: again, a sandbox, again free. Scarecrow only that the game decided to split into episodes.

After releasing of all episodes, we might expect a complete set of all episodes available for purchase, mostly in online stores.
Hitman release date: complete set of episodes in 2017
New Hitman is played by a hair’s breadth as Absolution: the same management, the same movements. But the level design – pure Blood Money. The developers have listened.
The “pilot” issue of three locations: two test polygon out of beta, and for dessert – a trip to Paris. Levels are built in stages: first a tiny test “boat” with careful training, then – the same boat, but in a free style, and another training mission on a military base. And finally – the first big deal, which makes Hitman the Hitman.
Before the mission you get to the menu planning: two objectives, a summary, several compartments for equipment. You can choose a suit, a gun, a starting set of “tools”, the start point of the job – and to put something in one of the recesses of the Agency. Tuxedo suit or classic Forty-Seventh? Passepartout or a coin? Syringe with poison or a string? Maybe the bomb? What would take a gun? The choice is not very wide, but each item I want to test in – training levels are already set up to experiment. You begin to estimate the approximate tactics and circumstances.
Setting in Paris a lot more training, but still compact. No roundabout ways: go through the front entrance, and here we have a huge mansion with the adjacent territory. Inside – a fashion show, the darkness of visitors and guards. And two of those who did not survive until morning.
At the start, you have three conventional route, but each branch and quickly acquires nuances. Here it is possible to slip through the bushes, there is – to climb through the pipe and out the lone guard near an empty box. The building chandeliers heap under your feet tempting stretch wires goal and then coming to the railing and drinks everywhere – blunt and sharp objects, and can be anything distract guards at every turn. There – tank punctured, then – open the gas cylinder.
Everything want to check and explore – you feel like a child in a toy shop. I recall while Blood Money and the best moments of Absolution: the choice of methods is really extensive.
equipment planning before the mission is useful, but most of the items can be found at the level of – or replace analogues. But, say, the bomb will have to do a decent hook, avoiding guards and no master key will have to look for clues, “noisy”… or crowbar handy ledge. In order not to wag their nerves searches, select equipment worth wisely.
Recent Hitman game review from variety of game websites and critics appreciate it mostly positively.
The beta versions of many confused system capabilities, which immediately shows the clever ways of killing and leads by the hand of the check points. Ideally, the search for an approach to the victim should act as a “detective opposite”: the killer stumbles upon a very interesting dialogue or paper – and finds the opportunity. This is followed by preparation for realization. But here’s the thing: you can move to select the desired scenario from the menu, and the game will show the courtesy and the place on the map, “interesting conversation”, and any desired object.
The Achilles heel of the new Hitman – technical performance. And it’s not bugs: they have just almost was not. The game provides a very pleasant picture, but … optimization. Even sections of the menu progruzhat slowly – that on the PC, on which the PS4. Moreover, the rating system, testing and contract tightly tied to online reservations, and if communication with the IO server is interrupted, you are in the middle of the job politely asked to return to the main menu – the good, the game has a slot for regular saves and checkpoints. But it is worth a few times to go to the menu, there is no desire to be loaded: load also do not occur when you click. It turns out that play, sitting online, a more expensive, but without it you will not have access to the bleeding – and, consequently, a new content level. Even in the same sniper rifle.
In general IO had a great restoration. From the convenience of Absolution game took over from Blood Money – elegant approach to design missions. Developers have tried to find a middle ground between gay opportunistic stealth – and stealth thoughtful, contemplative. In general, they did. This is still an exceptional game about stealth and the world’s top professional assassin simulator.
Questions remain primarily a cameo propagation model. The “pilot” has set three tasks, only one of which – full, and a number of nice, but not overly impressive additions. Talk about Hitman turning into a kind of “games as a service” is not to occur in practice. If the IO will not be able to turn the output of each episode in the colorful event, few people remember the Hitman to the final season.
On the job in Paris begins a true Hitman. So, to perform effectively concealed the murder of two goals, we need to get to the location of the following things:
- waiter uniforms
- Evacuation plan
- Bare Knuckle Boxer cocktail recipe
- Rat poison
First, go into the house with the main entrance, where the main stairs to come down soon, our first victim. Left under this staircase will be in basements, and where we need to move. Going down, going into the locker room, where the bench take the form of a waiter.
We act with caution, as we are in forbidden territory. After a change of clothes head to the security room, where we select the table in the wall of an evacuation plan
Next, we find a “Bare Knuckle Boxer” cocktail recipe. It is located in the kitchen, which is clearly visible from the guardroom. Moving to stoves, turn right and pick up a prescription
Last Ingredient – gag rat poison. Its located on the street, entrance to which is in the general dressing room. So, we leave the basement, up the stairs (the door in front of stoves). Dressing room will be a number
Inside the pass until the end of the room to the right and we find the open doors leading to the courtyard. There jump up to the second trailer, where we select the poison
So, all you need is assembled, therefore it is time to bring the plan into action. After we leave the dressing room into the corridor, and then follow the bar nearest the entrance to which is behind the scenes of the podium
When they reached the bar, come to the bar (on the left side), prepare a cocktail, and then add the poison (do not be afraid to poison a drink in front of strangers – a form of employee Palace allows any manipulation of the food)
Now we wait until the end. Once a victim is poisoned, it will go to the nearest toilet, so follow it. When he reached the dressing room, as an option, the object drown in the toilet.
Then, without losing time, hide the body in the closet and wait for the arrival of the personal bodyguard of the goal. It ends in a silent way, and then pick up the form, hide the corpse and pick up the walkie-talkie. In her report the emergency transfer to our second goal in a safe place. Then quickly climb the stairs to the second floor, where we will soon be faced with the victim in the company of its protection. Calmly follow them until the object will result in a large room. On-site maintenance wait until the guard, then kill the target, it is desirable shot in the head. If one of the guards will not want to leave the room, toss a coin that is on the table. Do business, we head for the nearest exit, which is the door to the kitchen
