Not sure how I feel on this, not really warming to it at the minute.

Hopefully they focus on making an excellent single player campaign and don't let it down by having to divert time and effort to tacking on multiplayer.

I'm interested to see how they'll do it but, of course, a great single-player experience comes first.

another game that does not need multiplayer gets it, Bioshock2 failed, Dead Space2 failed, Hitman is next

IDK might kinda be like ac brotherhood somehow. @funny although i do agree with you, alot of people were skeptic on AC having MP but i kinda turned out fun

I think that there is indeed potential for a great co-op game. Competive multiplayer would might suck, though.

I'd like to see a 1 on 1 head to head mode where you both enter a singleplayer level from random locations and must compete to assassinate the target without being caught or killed by the other player. Of course both players will look different from one another and not like Agent 47, so that your opponent could not differentiate you from a crowd unless you make hostile movements.

mjolliffe4731d ago

Really good idea. Send it over to IO!

Great more shitty MP tacked onto games that don't need it.

The MP in ACB is the worst MP I have played this generation, it was totally unneeded

How IO turned Hitman around, from Absolution to World of Assassination

When Hitman 3 recently changed its name to Hitman World of Assassination, fans had no idea how meaningful the moment was. On the outside it looked like a simple thing: Hitman 3 would now be known by this name and include levels from Hitman 2 and 3 - the trilogy would all be in one place. But on the inside, at IO Interactive, much more was going on.

You mean destroyed it with this tethered single-player campaign BS... And only the first few levels of the third modern game were on the disc! I'll never support this crap at any price-point! They've lost me as a customer.

Hitman is, and has been, a remarkable series developed by some of the best. Some are better than others, but every Hitman is challenging and fun.

Sure, there have been some stumbles and fumbles, but always in pursuit of the perfect Hitman game. The most recent trilogy is a masterclass in level design.
