never miss a target again

Dashboard and Apps News Xbox LIVE Xbox One

You cannot deny that Hitman is a great game and with the introduction of Elusive Targets the challenge and thrill of the hunt got so much better (you should ask our very own Max about that) but I couldn’t help but think there was something missing? Well the team at lo-Interactive and Square Enix might have just cracked that in the form of the Hitman Companion App.

Now you can really feel like Agent 47 as you receive your next Elusive Target directly to your phone. Notifications will appear via the app on your phone as soon as the Elusive Target goes live. You’ll be able to view the image, countdown and briefing video of the target for the duration of the contract. Now you can play the game whilst using the app to view the image of the target. This is key, as before you didn’t have any assistance from the in-game map to aid in their successful identification and elimination.

Hitman Companion

Not only will the App keep you up to date with Elusive Targets, but it will also keep you posted with all the latest news and information about what’s been added to the game, wherever you are.

Download the free app for iOS compatible with the iPhone 4S and later, iOS 8 is required

Download the free app for Android, API level 15 or above is required (“Ice Cream Sandwich” 4.0.3)

The current version of the HITMAN Companion is not optimized for tablets. Phones are recommended.

The Next Elusive Target

Hitman 'The Twin' Elusive Target

Armed with the new Companion App the next Elusive Target is just around the corner. On Friday 15th July you will face the toughest challenge yet as you are requested to eliminate Dylan Narvaez, aka ‘The Twin’. Dylan with be in Sapienza for 72 hours but so will his identical brother, Gonzales. To complete this contract, you will need to choose your target with supreme care and come up with a plan to eliminate him without any collateral damage whatsoever to Gonzales. Failure to do this will result in the contract being cancelled.

So will you be downloading and using the new app from now on and what do you think of the new Elusive Target coming on the 15th, let us know?
