Hitman 6 takes you back to being the most precise assassin of 2016
Hitman 6 is an upcoming stealth-action, third person game by Square Enix. It is being developed for Windows PC, Xbox One and PS 4.
It will take the approach of a more open-world Hitman game like previous titles, rather than the linear gameplay of Hitman Absolution. Which was kind of boring!

Hitman 6 Characters
The best part about Hitman series is that, it doesn’t focus on characters. I have yet to see a villain in Hitman series, whom we’d love to hate.
It’s actually a good thing. Hitman Absolution tried to do something different by giving you a storyline, which was kind of convoluted and wasn’t that much fun!
I started my journey with Hitman: Contracts. I couldn’t finish it, because I actually didn’t like the slow gameplay. I was quite impatient guy at that time.
As time moved on, I had a run in with Hitman Blood Money. Of course, as you can guess, I finished it off as quickly as I could, trying to find out a storyline, a villain, etc. I was trying to find out something that would make me remember this game.
However, my rushed gameplay left me wondering, what did I just play?!
Little did I know that I was leaving the best part behind. It was the gameplay itself! I sat down one evening thinking other ways to execute the assassination. Patiently, cleverly and cunningly, I executed several assassinations that night.
I ended the game after a couple of days, but this time, I was thinking about it in a whole different way.
I could still write that line, what did I just play!!
And mean, something very different and very familiar, at the same, that only few gamers would understand who have played Hitman: The Blood Money in its true sense.
So, in the end, there is just one character that you should know about.
The Assassin: Agent 47
Hitman 6 Story
Right now, there is not much to know about the storyline. The only thing that we do know at this point, is that, we have to assassinated high value targets as best as we can without gathering too much attention.
Hitman 6 Gameplay
Gameplay is that area, where Hitman truly shines! It doesn’t care about story, memorable characters, witty lines, graphics, music, or other things that other games focus too much and neglect the gameplay in the process.
Hitman 6 goes back to what it used to be about. We get sandbox style gameplay in comparison to linear one (Hitman Absolution).
We have to assassinate high value targets. However, we have to be quick about making decisions because our target can leave the area, flee, hide, etc.
Here are few interesting points:
- Special weapons are back.
- Disguises will take you to restricted places without feeling too scared about your own crew recognizing you.
- Complete stealth action will be rewarded.
- You may take the obvious approach of shooting or you may exercise patience and create an accident for your target.
- Timed assassination will also be present.
- 300 NPCs (non-playable characters) will be active on any given point and will react to the situations around them. In Absolution, there were only 50 NPCs active on any given point.
- Contracts mode will be available once again.
- Multiple items will be available to sabotage, like explosive barrels, crates, wines, stove, light switches, etc.
In a nutshell, Hitman 6 will bring the re-playable value that had me playing Hitman: Blood Money several times, just to get that perfect assassination.
I would mention again that Absolution disappointed me a little. For one thing, there was always some reddish hue in the scenes. No matter where I was or where I went, it was always there.
Then, the gameplay didn’t have enough choices to explore and when I did find something, I ran the risk of exposing myself to people (working around) like ‘the disguised me’.
Hitman 6 Trailer
The trailer of Hitman 6 doesn’t show off a significant leap of a next generation game. What it does promise, is that we’ll enjoy it more than the previous title.
