HITMAN First Anniversary Infographic

IO Interactive celebrates the first anniversary of their episodic HITMAN game with the release of a one year of HITMAN infographic. This includes all sorts of tidbits and factoids, such as how there is more words in the game's AI dialogue than in the entire Lord of the Rings trilogy. Here's their concluding message:

By the way if you havenít tried out Contracts mode in a while, there have been a few changes. There is a search and share system plus there are now tags so you can quickly select the type of contract you want to play - so if you love Sapienza and sniper rifles, then you can quickly find a Contract to your liking and with over 250,000 Contracts available to play today thatís a good thing.

We are having a blast making this game, and we hope you are enjoying playing it, whether you joined us a year ago, more recently with the launch of the box or youíve just joined today..! The HITMAN community is continuing to grow bigger and more awesome every day.

It's not the number, it's the quality and how they're put together.

So how is this game now that it's complete?

It's excellent. I hated Absolution so I'm glad they went back to the original formula of big, open maps with targets to deal with as you see fit. There's a lot of (optional, but heavily encouraged) online stuff despite being single-player and the ending is poor but it nails the spirit of the older, good Hitman games.

If you've played the older ones, turn off Opportunities. This is a feature that spells out some of the ways to kill your target so it's too much hand-holding for experienced hitmen.

In previous Hitman games, were the targets always obviously "bad"? Hitman 2016 makes a point of mentioning how awful these people are, which is a bit jarring. Like Opportunities, this felt like a concession to mass-market audience. Happily, it's just as easily ignored.

Using a steering wheel on a Burnout game is like using the Space Shuttle controls to fly a kite.
