Square has announced that the Hitman: Absolution CONTRACTS mode will be free and open to everyone when the game launches next week. In a statement released this afternoon they have decided to change the mode from being accessed via a code in the game’s box to simply being open to one and all. Anywhere outside of the US will still need to redeem a code, but it will be free to add the CONTRACTS mode.
The full statement from Square reads:
We’re so excited that Hitman: Absolution is launching next week! In particular, we’re looking forward to all of the amazing ways players can challenge each other in the innovative CONTRACTS mode – where you get to call the shots.
We’d actually planned to have this mode accessible via a code in the game’s box, but we really want to make it available to anybody that plays the game – so we want to take a new approach.
If you’re in North America you’ll see the mode automatically appear in the game menu.
If you’re elsewhere, you can redeem the code inside the box, or you can simply select the BUY CONTRACTS PASS option. From there, head to the store where CONTRACTS will be free to access.
The only thing you need to worry about then is just how challenging your CONTRACT will be.
See you online!
