Hitman: Absolution will feature a new asynchronous multiplayer mode called Contracts, IO Interactive revealed at a Gamescom event today.

Contracts, is a new online mode which allows gamers to create and share their own custom hit challenges within the game. Choose a level, targets, weapons and then set your rules for completing your contract based on time, style and witnesses.

The game will also ship with many pre-set Contracts, each designed by the very best assassins at IO Interactive.

"Contracts was inspired by our loyal and extremely creative fans, many of whom are still finding new and amazing ways of taking out targets in previous Hitman games," said Christian Elverdam, gameplay director for Hitman: Absolution. "Contracts mode finally delivers a way for Hitman players to fully realise both their creativity and competitive nature."

Successfully completing a contract, will see players rewarded with contract dollars. In order to create more elaborate and creative setups, the player can choose from a vast arsenal of weapons, disguises, upgrades, and techniques; all of which can be unlocked by either playing through the story mode of Hitman: Absolution or by spending contract dollars.

Hitman: Absolution will be released November 20.

Absolutely brilliant. I cannot wait to play some of these. This has definitely peaked my interest but, unfortunately due to the poor release date, I still won't be purchasing until after Christmas.

This is what Ubisoft should have done or should do with the Assassin's Creed's multiplayer.

I'm so glad I have it pre-ordered, can't wait to play it after the sniper challenge.

This sounds awesome. Essentially it's level creation, but the parameters are defined concisely enough that it will still be a Hitman experience. Shame I probably still won't have the sodding internet by the time the game is out.

Also I didn't know there was a release date! I'm still quite disappointed this isn't getting a Wii U release :(
