Gamers create specific contracts by simply playing the game and marking targets throughout each level, in addition to performing the assassinations. Friends can compete against one another for the highest score in their custom-built contracts. As well, players can try their skill at any of the contracts from ones that have been uploaded online and an assortment that were designed by the developers.
The amount of customization and freedom offered in the Contracts mode is a welcome addition to a game series that is already known for its sandbox style of gameplay. Hitman: Absolution
