'Hitman: Blood Money' (PS2/Xbox/PC) Gets Online Ranking System

by Rainier on Nov. 21, 2005 @ 8:19 a.m. PST

When assassins from Agent 47's contract agency, The ICA, are eliminated in a series of hits, it seems a larger, more powerful agency has entered the fray. For Agent 47 it's business as usual, until he suddenly loses contact with The ICA. Sensing that he may be the next target, he travels to America, where he prepares to make a killing.

Players online will be ranked in a number of different and continually evolving levels. So whether you enjoy taking a more tactical, silent approach like a professional assassin or whether you buy in to the less subtle but equally effective shooter style, your proficiency at eliminating the target can always be assessed in some way.

There will be very many different categories; so far, players who are the Highest Paid, Most Wanted, Fastest, Most Accurate, Create the Most Accidents and of course are simply the Best Hitman will be honoured.

League tables will be displayed in game and all players will be rewarded for competing online with a search to find the world's best Hitman. The competition will run for console players only and will commence once the game has launched with a grand prize, to be revealed nearer launch.

Hitman: Blood Money is the fourth installment in the popular franchise and takes killing for money to a whole new level. Using new gaming technology and functionality it delivers an experience that is the closest gamers will ever have come to the real world of the assassin.

Agent 47 is back and this time he's paid in cold, hard cash. How the money is spent will affect his passage through the game and the weapons at his disposal, resulting in a unique gameplay experience for each player. Powered by a new version of Io's stunning Glacier engine, Hitman: Blood Money will deliver the most brutal and realistic simulation of life as the world's deadliest assassin.

Developed by Io-Interactive, Hitman: Blood Money will be released worldwide on PS2, Xbox and PC
