The clock is ticking… Get ready for the next Elusive Target Re-activation! The Guru will be in Sapienza for 10 days starting at 2pm CET on Friday 23rd March.
Elusive Targets are the closest thing to the Hitman fantasy that we’ve ever created; a unique target that you’ll only have one chance to eliminate. If you kill them or fail the contract, there will be no second chances. When you’re actually playing the contract, the Elusive Target will not appear on the map and will not appear in Instinct. In order to find them, you’ll need to use clues from the briefing video and a photograph that you will be able to review. You’ll need to explore, find your target, learn their patterns and come up with a plan to eliminate them – all whilst playing.
If you missed any Elusive Targets the first time around, or if you are new to HITMAN, this is your chance to experience these intense time-limited targets. All of the suit unlocks are back in play for both new and existing players to complete their collection. If you’ve already completed or failed an Elusive Target, you won’t be able to play that specific contract again; your record for that contract will stand and cannot be altered. Re-activated ET’s will still be time-limited and released periodically.
Elusive Target Rewards
Elusive Target contracts are the only way to unlock some unique suits for Agent 47, ranging from suits specific to each location in Season One, to signature suits from previous games and the prestigious Winter Suit, which is only awarded to players who can complete 5 Elusive Targets with the Silent Assassin rating. All of the suit unlocks are back in play for both new and existing players to complete their collection.
Intel on ET #16 Reactivation
The Guru will be in Sapienza for 10 days starting at 2pm CET on Friday 23rd March 2018. Remember that an Elusive Target cannot be restarted once any targets have been eliminated or any objectives have been completed. (The Guru was originally released as the 16th Elusive Target, but will be the 9th reactivated Elusive Target.)
This Elusive Target has one objective: (1) Eliminate Richard J. Magee
IMPORTANT NOTE: This contract has two additional fail conditions.
- Do not harm, injure or subdue Keith Keeble
- Do not harm, injure or subdue Katherine Feller
These conditions are clearly pointed out in the briefing video.
If either of these conditions is triggered, the Elusive Target contract will be failed, permanently. Approach with caution.
Elusive Target Notifications
For every Elusive Target that is re-activated, we’ll send notifications through the Companion, and you’ll be able to view the image, countdown and briefing video of the target for the duration of the contract. (We are aware of some users not receiving notifications on iOS and we’re investigating the issue. You’ll still be able to view all assets inside the app, no problems.)
