OXM UK: "IO Interactive has considered making a co-op Hitman but feels this would detract from the franchise's lone wolf ethos, according to Hitman: Absolution game director Tore Blystad."
Why consider coop and not competitive play? Game scenario would be clones of Agent 47 like the one in Hitman Contracts(forgot which game start you in a white room) race each other who gets to kill the contract first, killing each other along the way.
That's actually a good idea. I'm sure the devs thought of it but were too lazy to put it in. Hopefully Assassin's Creed III has it.
True dat. If Valve can fit co-op into one of the most isolationist games around, why can't IO manage the same in Hitman?
You cannot just say portal 2 without any substance. Portal was a puzzle game it is not like anyone said you could never do co op in that one you just throw another portal gun in there. In Hitman at least blood money you would be so precise about how you pull off a kill that a friend could screw that all up or you guys would split up in the open map and forget you were playing together. So the true game to compare this co op to would be Splinter Cell Chaos Theory
I think that co-op would actually be a good idea. It would certainly help a stealth infiltration of a building go quicker, unless you're playing with an all guns blazing idiot.
Number 47 works alone..
Just like Batman did when he had Robin following him around. Or Mr.Incredible when alongside his family.
But 47 doesn't HAVE anyone to follow him. Or rather would even allow it, not much of an assassin if he had a tag along.
Hitman is the last game that needs any type of multiplayer.
Competitive multi player could be real fun if done correctly. Co-op could also be fun if they did it in splinter cell chaos theory style. Anything to make the game more worth of my 60$ is fine with me. I truly hope it is not a scripted action game
Just because Splinter Cell did it doesn't mean Hitman should follow, let there be a margin of difference between the two and let Splinter Cell have it's multiplayer and coop. It actually fits unlike Hitman which is purely Agent 47, the man works alone and is completely desensitized. Not every game needs multiplayer, a lot of which shouldn't have it. This is one of those games.
inb4 co-op haters
It would be pretty fun to go in guns blazing with a coop partner. If you tried to be precise with your assassination, it wouldn't work. Coop would only work guns blazing.
On what date is the release of Hitman absolution?
Hitman is a single player franchise. I can't see multiplayer working at all.
Tackling objectives as a team to take down the target sounds fun. Still wouldn't want it though.
I'm sure they could have put in a co-op mode or even a competitive mode (like Assassin Creed:Brotherhood),but gave up on the idea due to interest.Anyway,I hope the single player lives up to the name.I'd be happy if it's even half the game Blood Money was.
